I find the A4 sheets you get at most DIY sheds to be perfectly adequate, whether used dry or wet with water or oil. The stuff I have at present is branded EAC (English Abrasives Company).

Wet dry paper on a roll ? Never heard of that . Always bought quality paper from car paint factors. Sit down before asking the price especially 3M , always way more expensive for all their stuff.

I am buying most of that kind of thing from a company called Sprayguns Direct or from Ebay sellers.
There is a tangible difference between non branded abrasives and 3M, there is also a price difference !! Someone very high up in the epoxy adhesives business once described 3M as reassuringly expensive.
I have also found the Mirka brand to be very good (almost no difference to 3M) and I got the last packs of that abrasive paper on Ebay.

You could try Workshop Heaven who stock 3M 'reassuringly expensive' microfinishing and lapping film if you want some very fine abrasive paper.

Mirka is a quality paper and like 3M, used by the car bodywork trade, it can be bought on the roll, abranet strips are also good for taking away stock quickly and last forever on balsa.
