Update: Mirror blank ordered plus a truckload of 80 grit. A-grinding we will go ta-da.

Question.. what is the go with grit from a lapidary shop these days? I bought a kilo of 80 from the local shop, mainly because I go past it regularly, with the idea of using any rubbish to hog it out. They tell me they import all their grit from the USA so I'm thinking if there is a high turnover there will be a less chance of it being contaminated. They stock 46 down to 1200. It's a lot easier to buy local. I will use high grade Cerium Oxide.
