Product Description

True Grit is a wax-based, all-natural, abrasive wax paste, hand blended in West Yorkshire. It is made from a unique blend of waxes, natural abrasives and oils.

True Grit is designed to take your workpiece from 240-grit up to around 1000-grit, whilst reducing airborne dust and leaving you with a silky smooth end product.

True Grit can be used as your final finish or as a stepping stone between sanding and your final wax finish.

As well as a final finish it also works amazingly well to denib and polish a lacquer finish bringing your finished item up to a near-mirror gloss!

True Grit is like liquid sandpaper, reducing scratches left by the initial sanding and eliminating fine dust produced by traditional sanding at higher grades. The grinding powder is designed to break down to a finer mesh as they are used, while still maintaining a cutting edge.

"Love the new paste. I was a regular Yorkshire Grit user but with that now being made outside the U.K. I was keen to find an alternative, this ticks all the boxes for me. Brilliant Product! "

How To Use

  1. Sand your item to 240 Grit. We find sanding through the grits, sanding both radially with the lathe running and laterally with the lathe stationary work well to remove any sanding rings.
  2. Turn on the lathe and run at around 400-600 rpm. Work in the wax using a paper towel. The Abrasive in the wax will start to break down making your piece smoother whilst trapping the fine dust within the wax.
  3. When you are happy with the finish turn up the speed on your lathe and use a clean piece of paper buff until no residue.
  4. If you wish to apply a top coat, wax finishes can be added directly on top. If wishing to use a non-wax be sure to remove any remaining wax before applying your finish. This can be done with White Spirit or Meths.
  5. Now take a seat and admire your handy work!
