Here is a real simple jig that makes cutting sandpaper for 1/4 sheet sanders a breeze. It is simply a 8 1/2” X 11” piece of 1/2” MDF that is mounted on some scrap plywood and surrounded by 1X stock. (You really don’t need to miter the corners, just butt up the two pieces of wood.) Then grooves were cut with a table saw where you would cut the sandpaper. This allows you to easily cut the sandpaper to the correct size using a razor knife. I also added a piece of luan to act as a hanger on the back.
I am planning to make one on the back that will allow me to cut 1/3 sheets for my sanding block. You can see I am getting ready for my finishing sanding..LOL
