Any sort of general auto store should have this stuff, even some hardware stores will have the fine grit as well for metal. up to 2000 is common instore stuff. With 2000 grit i got a foggy mirror finish, didn't actually take that long...as for the cpu, i found it easier to do the cpu than the heatsink.

For me it wasnt so much the weight as keeping the heatsink level while sanding and not rounding the edges by being too enthusiastic with the lapp

Will this work?
FrozenCPU Deluxe Heatsink Lapping Kit - FrozenCPU.com

I could go around to like wallmart :P or something and get like the different grit sandpapers right? But ordering that ^^ would be fine also right?

You can buy all the Emory board/paper on line or at any auto store for a heck of alot less than that!
