I’m fairly new to working on the lathe and I’m quickly being “turned” into a big fan of it. I began turning a bowling pin into a mallet and then moved on to pens and I’m now just starting to turn bowls. I made this holder from scrap wood for the different sandpaper grades used in power sanding. Wood turning is really fun!

Now this looks very useful.
Well done.

I have been buying velcro sheets and cut my own discs, more cost effective. I like your holder, when I make one i would make it double sided, one side new other side used. I am very interested in your power tool. what brand is it and where did you get it, cost? Thanks

Brian , I found it on this site for $49.99 and a Google search will come up with a lot of other sites but nothing about the actual company or support options.
Most of the stuff I found made by them looks to be about the same as HF only HF has stores and warranties that they pretty much stand up to.
