I have been telling about how dificult can be find tools or some accessories for use in woodworking here in Brazil.When they sell a sander like this Metabo showed you can’t find spare sandpaper to buy.You have to order and the prices are not friendly,so to us make it at home is the solution.
In the past I made many hook and loop sandpaper gluing sheets of loop (sold here at upholstery stores) at normal sandpaper and than shaping it for the sand pad profile.
Now we can find a sandpaper rolls with back looped.Made in Brazil.So I have one step less to do.
See the pictures:
First a new hook sheet at sand pad
A copy of sand pad profile with the holes for pen marker
A handle for better control
Leather Hole Punch Pliers to do the holes
Thanks for attention
