Sure. I haven't done any woodwork or sanded a blade for at least half a doz years. But I can still tell you that 200grit is coarser than 400 and you've got it the wrong way around.

Oops, just realized I had it the other way around.

Don't know about "used to standing" but I spent an hour last night reducing a foot of 20mm dowel to 17mm to fit inside some PVC conduit. I used 100 grit, I imagine it would have taken 4 hours with 200 grit.. :lol: I'll have to admit I was sick of sanding after that.. :lol:

If I ever decide to do this full time (or even five hours a week) then I'll need a lathe.. Actually I do have a lathe but it's a little toy one and the chuck is nowhere near 20mm.. :lol:

Don't even think of just using your fingers and a sheet of sandpaper.

Too late! :D Actually, I shaved the wing with an X-acto blade before the fingers-and-sandpaper bit. The shaping is on the forehand side to prevent thumb chafing when using the service grip.

Side view shows the same sanded area, plus 2mm thick self-adhesive cork tile on the back. Incidentally, that's Karis M (red) on the BH and Tenergy 25 (black) on FH. Very short pimples on both, but much wider on T25. Also note the difference between using a fresh blade to cut the rubber (top) and a dull blade (bottom). :sweat: I didn't sand the grip per se, though – it's super comfortable as is!
