Hmm that sounds like a better option, don't they clog up? Or if they do, you can clean them easily?

We carry a work pot of water + detergent, along with a plastic scrub brush. When the paper loads up, we drop it in the bucket and pull out one that's been soaking, give it a pass with the scrub brush if needed, and press on.

Where do you buy wet or dry paper? I can only find 600 grit or higher and only at auto paint suppliers. Do they make some in the 100 to 220 range?

We normally keep 60/80/120/150/220/320/400/600/1000/1200/1500/2000 on hand, but you're right that the coarser grits can be harder to find. I've gotten to the point where I just go online.

I might take a quick swipe @ baseboards but NEVER crown

I did a job a few months back where I had to paint over varnished trim. I skipped sanding on a few pieces of crown, even skipped priming on one piece. It all seemed to stick just fine, but this doesn't mean I'm going to skip sanding on any of my jobs from now on.

Have you never followed a hack??

We've got guys around here who shoot the trim same time, and same product, as the walls: builders' flat. It's usually the 2nd owner who gets us in to fix that, so there's a lot of trim to sand, baseboards included.

The other situation where it comes up is in quality renovations, where there are generations of crud painted into the base.

I think you guys that are wasting time sanding are leaving a lot of money on the table.

How so? To me, that phrase means we're not charging enough for our work, but I'm getting a sense that you mean we're wasting our time.

It was a joke, I should have included a jester. It takes a few minutes at most to scuff sand the trim on the average room.

Thanks, I'm not ready for subtle yet. Over-tired and under-caffeinated.

Am doing a good size job in an old multi unit building. We're doing all the common halls, stairways etc. I tested today and came up positive for lead paint. So with all the different people living there, we aren't going to do any sanding. It's currently old oil based enamel. So I cleaned several areas with krud kutter gloss off, and top coated with Ppg breakthrough. Am going to go back in a week or two to test the adhesion. I'm confident it will be good. I also did a test with cabinet coat, which has better hide and flow out, but takes a lot longer to dry. I like the fast dry time of the breakthrough for areas having people coming and going.
