Sand paper I think is one of the worst things for storage. There are different grits, sizes, types.
So what I’ve come up with. I store my full sheets in an expandable file folder. Quick and easy, didn’t even have to make anything. It’s easy to see what I have, and how much.
So after you use it a little bit, or cut it up into smaller pieces, not long really fits nice in the forlder. I mostly use the paper on my lathe. so that is where I put my bins.They work out pretty good, I can just throw random bits in there place. And once again a project that involves fence pickets. I swear I’m almost out of these things.
So on the files and rasps. I’ve got lots of them, and din’t want to keep them in a drawer where they bang against each other and get dull faster. once again a little wall hung bin seemed to be a good idea. There a a couple of different bins.
I put a couple of spacers in a couple of the bins so that they weren’t rubbing against each other. for the smaller files i just drilled some holes in a piece of wood. Mostly saw files in there.
For the larger files I just crammed in some 1/4 ply wood scraps.
Both of these are pretty rough. Just Glued and brad nailed together. But didn’t know if I would like this solution, my lathe is close to my bench, but it is a little inconvenient to reach over the lathe for everything. Also it’s the wall that holds my clamps. I’ll work with it for a while, but hopefully I’ll come up with a better Idea.
