Resin Disc - Discolored?
« on: March 29, 2016, 02:04:02 PM »
O.K. I was sanding some Sodalite on the red 600 grit soft disc
and got a silverish discoloration on it. I can only assume it's the silver
color from the sharpie color I used on the rock to be a guide to not
missing any spots or flats, etc...

It's odd because I used the sharpie to color the stone on the 325 grit
soft disc and no discoloration al all.

I think the disc is O.K. as it's just color. Right?

I think it's fine.  They color code the discs by grit size for ease of use.  I would guess it's just the smaller grit holding on to the silver color.  Shouldn't be a problem and will probably wear off with some more use.

That's what I was hoping.
