The dirty little secret is damn near everything works. I've tried:

Balsa
Nono Cloth
Cow Leather
Horse Leather
Felt
Denim
News Paper
Card Board
Card Stock
Pine
My arm
Various fine grit stones
Diamond film

Some work better than others.

I tend to use balsa loaded with boron carbide and chromium oxide the most.

I'm not opposed. Keith is my leather guy. Maybe he can get me some.

Believe it or not I get excited sourcing new stuff. I'm actually pumped up that I bough some $2 springs for the Edge Pro that are due in next week. I must have a sickness to get excited about $2 springs....
