Micro fine sand paper wanted

Hi
Some time back about a month ago, someone posted they had some
micro-fine sandpaper for sale. I lost his e-mail and I am interested
in buying some. If he is reading this or someone knows who it was that
would be great.
Thanks

This link will take you to a source of sandpaper up to 12000 grit, that's twelve *thousand* not twelve hundred:

That would have been: "Reid V. Plumbo"

This is very misleading, as if you go to

they even state on the catalog page that the grit numbers for their regular sheets do *NOT* match the grit numbers for regular sandpaper, but this information is not listed on most other websites that carry it, or in the documentation they give to stores. I wonder how many complaints they get from people who buy the 1800 or 2400 grit and wonder why it's so rough. Not to mention, if you want to buy just one sheet, it's $9 a sheet, and $9 shipping. Conversely, the Micro Mesh MX line, which is for metal polishing, is numbered /lower/ than regular sandpaper. Here's a comparasion chart I wrote up for someone making a sandpaper faq on rec.woodworking.
Micro Mesh, and Micro Mesh AO [for plastics and woodwork]
1500 = 400 grit 1800 = 600 grit 2400 = 800 grit 3200 = 1200 grit 3600 = 1350 grit 4000 = 1500 grit 6000 = 2000 grit 8000 = 2500 grit 12,000 = 'Sub Micron Finish', going by the rest of the scale, would be 3500 grit
Micro Mesh MX [for metalworking] 60 = 230 grit 80 = 280 grit 100 = 320 grit 120 = 340 grit 150 = 360 grit 180 = 400 grit 240 = 600 grit 320 = 800 grit 360 = 1200 grit 400 = 1350 grit 600 = 1500 grit 800 = 2000 grit 1200 = 2500 grit

Interesting. I've never tried the stuff myself, just passing on the link that came from someone else. 1500 grit is as fine as I use for anything and it comes from the local hardware store.
