Saw this organizer tip from a previous issue of the American Woodturner. I made one yesterday before starting my pen turning session (to make some pens for my daughter who is leaving for a new job and needs to give some farewell gifts to some of her co-workers).
I used to write the grits on the backs of the sandpaper strips I cut out for sanding pens. But sometimes I forgot and had to guess the grit of a strip that had been used. With this sandpaper organizer, I can easily keep track of the strips and their grits. I epoxy-glued magnets on the back of the organizer so it can be “attached” to or parked at any metal part of the lathe as I want.
