Default Going to resurfacing my equipment need suggestions...

Well I thought I was doing it right but I was wrong. lol. I hit it with 320 sandpaper then put a polish on it. Shocker...the ball got into a roll early and would hit flat and I lost my snap.

So now I want to do it right. Can you tell me if this is the right approach? I will be using regular sandpaper and not abralon....

220
360
600
1000
2000

Then I'll put a polish on it. What do you think? Thanks.

-Mark

There's a pretty good video article about this on bowlingball.com. Seach "dead ball" and hit the 3rd article down.

You surface everything you desired reaction. Lower the grit the earlier the read as you found out. Higher grits and polish for length.

Yeah,

I redid it and I'll test it out on Tues. I went 180, 220, 320, 400, 600, 1500, 2000, then put a polish on it.

One thing I can't figure out is that I can still see some of the lines in the ball..due to the polish filling them. I can only assume this was due to the lower grit but I would have thought that the next grit would have taken them out. If it reads too early I'll redo them but start at 220 and go up from there..or maybe start at 320.

Generally speaking you should see the prior grit disappear or minimize from the next grit... if their not gone after two grit then you need to continue with the current until they have disappeared.

Sand lightly with lower grits... means you maybe have to sand longer.

When resurfacing, I never go below 500 grit, unless I'm trying to remove nicks/cuts. I do use Abralon pads though.

Just as a general comment, I have tried both regular wet/dry sandpaper and the Abralon pads. I first got a grit chart off the internet to determine how sandpaper and Abralon pads compared. It appears your use of 2000 grit sandpaper should have made the ball very slick. The problem I have had using sandpaper is when I use it the holes in the ball tend to grab the edges of the sand paper and I am never sure that i have got a consistent finish on the ball? I have found that a maroon scotch brite pad will really make my Anarchy read heavy oil very good, lol. Good luck and may all your shots be 10 in the pit.
