That is an interesting idea, would having holes in the plate that correspond to the holes in the sandpaper extend the life of the paper at all?

I’m just guessing, but I don’t think it would extend the life of the sandpaper. The sandpaper I used here is from my Random Orbital Sander because it was all I had in the shop. The holes in the paper are for dust collection, but since this setup doesn’t have dust collection… a solid sheet of sandpaper would be better to use here.

My plan is to buy something like this in the future:

Disk Sandpaper

I’m starting a segmented turning project and will use this setup to sand the segmented rings.

Cool, it is an interesting set up and I will follow your progress with it with interest. My lathe is a bit old and hard to use so I think I will have to upgrade that before I can implement such a solution as you’ve got there.
