The right preparation steps will help you achieve the best finishes. Yorkshire Grit abrasive paste for woodturners is designed to help you get there!
Easy Wood Tools® is pleased to bring the Yorkshire Grit products to customers worldwide by our acquisition of Yorkshire Grit, LLC. Yorkshire Grit Original and Yorkshire Grit Microfine will be manufactured by Easy Wood Tools, using the same proprietary ingredients and process, and same integrity to the best quality. We are excited to share the "grit of Yorkshire" to the world.
Yorkshire Grit is an abrasive paste formulated to give a fine-keyed surface to your turnings, prior to applying your finish of choice. The products contain a proprietary hand-blended mix of mineral oil, beeswax and abrasive powders that are carefully processed together without the use of solvents or other strong smelling and potentially harmful chemicals. The result is a creamy paste that acts like “liquid sandpaper” which reduces scratches left behind by lower grit dry sanding, and eliminating fine dust produced by higher grit sanding. On most woods, sanding up to 240 grit is sufficient to start with our paste. The grinding powders we use are designed to break down to a finer mesh as they are used, while still maintaining a cutting edge, so as the friction reduces the mesh size of the grit it is effectively forming a finer abrasive.
Available in both Original (for wood) and Microfine (for resins/hybrids/wood). If you haven’t tried these products yet, we know you will love them!
