Sanding Problem

Jim Rutten
>I have a piece of figured maple on my lathe and am trying to sand the outside profile. After shaping the piece I started with 100 grit Norton 3x sand paper, which was fine, then 120,then 150. At 150 a scratch started showing up, so I went back down to 120 with no luck. I then went back to 100 and still the scratch is there. I don't know what to make of this. Anyone else care to take a shot?
