I'm going to pick up emery cloth, the kind used to clean pipes that's 1.5" wide, for scribe sanding. Should I get 120g or 320g?

I've tried plumber's emery cloth and not been terribly impressed by it. It does work, but I think actual sandpaper is better. (Your mileage may vary....)
As far as grit, I'd guess 120 might be my choice to try. 320 is pretty fine.

That's exactly what I've been looking for; thank you!
