    I'm using 150 grit Porter Cable discs (use quicksand j/c) although they can be pricey the discs last very well.

    The Belmore branded discs take some beating on price and quality.

    Try Dave at the taping store.
    He's got some decent 120 grit, reasonably price as well.

    2 rooms, 1 disk?

    damn, your mud must be REALLY hard. I can sand a whole house on the same 120 grit disk.

    I use the yellow ones from Belmore (really not that expensive) usually use 120 or 150 pad will normally do one or two houses hate using new ones bit harsh at the start, think the main problem the turn around is so quick the cement is still to soft
