What grit of sanding pads would you recommend for the bottoms of stoneware pieces?

I use 100 and 200 grit for most work, sometimes 400 grit for a really fine finish.  I wet sand . . . dip the pad in water and then sand.  Works nicely for cleaning bisque, too.  I get mine from toolocity.

For those who do not put it on their wheel, what kind of sander do you use? can you take a pic? My husband works in a machine shop and he has a few choices. Once we figure it out, I will just be going there with each batch to get them done.

Here is another non commercial glaze I had mixed at Glaze mixer. This one is a Matte.  It shows how uneven it is because the clay body is dark.  I have watched videos on applying glaze but they all seem to dip and have a beautiful Medium layer.

This look really nice as it is.
