This has become an indispensable tool in my classroom. It consists of a piece of plywood, 2 plywood stops and 2 hacksaw blades. You insert a full sheet of sandpaper and tear it in half, then take each half and tear it into quarters. It makes sizing sandpaper for 1/4 sheet sanders quick and painless. When using this jig it works best to press down on the hack saw blade when you tear, the paper has a tendency to slide and tear at a slight diagonal if you don’t.
I plan to switch out the hacksaw blades for old blades from my DW735 planer, they are a waste item and would not flex when tearing paper against them like the hacksaw blades do.
