Everyone has one of these.
But if you don’t let me show you mine.
It’s a piece of plywood with a hacksaw blade screwed down to the wood and a hole to hang it up. That’s it.
I folded a sheet of sandpaper so I could put the lines where they are needed.
I have two marks 1/2 sheet and 1/4 sheet. You can also draw lines for 1/3 sheet sanders if you have one of those.
I slide the paper in under the blade, sandy side down to keep it from moving while being cut, line it up, place a couple of fingers on the blade to hold the paper steady and then rip the paper.
It’s easier that trying to find a square edge to try and rip paper.
We used this in the sanding block workshop to cut the paper for 75 sanding blocks.
