I store my ROS discs on an MDF square with three 3/8” diameter dowels that hold the pads, and allow me to put the sander down on the dowels and pick up a pad in the right position. I’m definitely not the first or even the 1000th person to do it. Just an idea if you feel like making something yourself.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

I here what your saying but when you see and use this applicator its very well made and its easy to keep track of because its got a hole in the handle so you can hang it on a nail or screw and like i said its made in america and im getting tired of all my tools being made in china -japan -korea etc. and even though its only a $10 tool its a start i try to buy any tool made here i even go to yard sales to buy older tools that use to be made here and thay may be old but thay still work because they are a well built tool
