Subject:
Sandpaper Grit?

>I just read a post here that said not to skip grits when you sand. Then it went on to say that sandpaper grits run 80, 120, 150, 180, 220, 320, 400, 600. I'm not sure that I start at 80 grit but when sanding after I get to done with 180 I'll go 220, to 240, to 280 then 320. Is this a little over kill because I've always heard not to skip any grits also. Now I'm a little confused, is 240, and 280 something that we normally do not use?
