    Not sure how many people laps their heatsinks, but I need to on this one. I want at least a 800 grid sandpaper, I live in Toronto, does anyone know where I can get them?

    Hey Westside, sorry I didn't mention this on irc, but when I'm up over 600 grit for anything, I use Norton sandpaper. If you can't find it in the bins at your hardware store (look near the stainless steel), then check sites like Rockler.com.

    Or better yet, look for sites or stores that specialize in auto-body repair. They always sand to at least 1000 grit before they paint.

    Hell, if you want to wait a few days for the mail, I'll send you a sheet that's at least 1000 grit. I know I've got some in the garage. PM me.

    I got my 800,1000,1500, and 2000 sandpaper from a modeling store. If you want fine sandpaper try calling nearby hobby/modeling/art store.

    Canada.
    Not too familiar with these stuff, but did you try home depot? Seems like they'd have something like that.

    Haven't seen anything over 400 at Home Depot, aka "We can trick you into thinking you can do this yourself"

    Yes, please use that on a CPU heatsink and see what happens.
