Ok. Time for me to give something back to the community as I have taken and taken and so far have not given back. I was up at a friends shop yesterday getting help with a project (thanks Jim!) when I brought out three old containers of Frog Tape each containing a different 5” grit of sanding disc for my ros. He thought it was a great idea, so I decided to post it here with pictures.

My workshop like so many of yours, is in my un-conditioned garage and its subject to all the humidty thats famous in the DC area. How many times have you reached for a sanding disc only to find it feeling more like wet pulp instead of a crisp sheet? By repurposing your Frog tape containers you can keep your discs crisp and dry ready to go when needed.

Hey Scott, great post. I use my frog tape dispensers for the exact same thing. I got the inspiration from some sanding discs that I bought that came in cases that look just like the frog tape. Now I don’t have to pay extra for the containers.
