Good advice. The tip about the tape over detail was great, I never thought of that.

I live in a dry climate. I find that dry sanding builds up a static charge (attracts dust), that wet sanding does not. Is this true? And please keep these "How to"s coming.

Nice concise " how to" on the various sanding products. It's good to be reminded, that different products are effective in various situations, vs just trying to use the same type for all types of sanding.
