Excellent bravo Robert. That’s the first step to leave wood grinding and start wood cutting. :)

Robert – I keep my sandpaper, sanding disks and belts in a
20 gallon plastic storage tub – I don’t have the room to build
one of those nice cabinets with the drawers and shelves
to make it look all ritzy and fancy.
I just dig thru the tub until I find what I need.

BTDT… I use these pads to long life my used sanding discs…

when the velcro does the sanding, the disc is pronounced officially _dying...

Just started into that. Someone showed me how to use planes and not irritate the pins in my wrist and arm. Much more willing to do so when it doesn’t hurt for days afterward.

Hmmm, never tried turning 600… best I could manage was 360°, anything after that was just repetition.

Here in Australia they’re grounded… at least till a vaccine is found.

I’ve got a cardboard box laying around somewhere there with all my left overs. I sort thru them from time to time.
Sandpaper storage is truly on the last of my major concerns. When it wears out I just toss it and all of it’s friends.

A sandpaper hoarder.

I feel better already.

:-D

- Robert

Generally you are OK if the hoard is kept in the shop. It’s when you are found tucking small bits in your bed, the kitchen and bathroom that a case can be made for an intervention. Don’t let sandpaper shame ruin your life. If you feel you have a real sandpaper problem, please, I urge you to seek professional help….....

Yesterday I threw away some sandpaper, and some of it was only half used.

One day at a time….....

Steve, is there something more you want to tell us?

You should have cut off and kept the unused half… waste knot… wears sandpaper quicker.
