Emery mohs ?

Forum: Jewelry Making Materials


I am wondering if there is any difference between the different grades of wet/dry paper ?

I have some 400 Emery paper, 600 Emery paper, they both do exactly what I require, but I am just curious about the differences if there are any.

Out of interest, would the Emery be any harder or more abrasive than a steel file ?

Thank you for reading this

Usually the higher the number the finer the grit. I would say a steel file would be more abrasive due to the fact you only file in one direction to cut down edges fast. Emery can be used wet for a smoother final finish.
