Dear Tom,
    I used to do a lot of wet sanding.  Our family owned and operated a Ford 
Tractor and Implement Business.  I did the painting of the used equipment 
that my Dad would trade for.  I would just get a 5 gallon bucket of water and 
a piece of sandpaper to wet sand the primer before painting the finish coat.  
I think that more than anything it helped keep the dust down.  I think as you 
stated earlier that it was done with the finer grit papers.  You can buy sand 
paper for wet/dry sanding.  It has been so long ago, (30+) I wish that I 
could remember more.  Oh well!!!
