Not much of a jig really – but if you cut your own paper for a drum sander you will know what a pain it is….......well not anymore my friends…...
The trick here is to have a reference surface as long as the paper – in my case, my combo Miter Saw bench thing filled the bill. A scrap of masonite is used for the cutting jig – some Sharpie marks show where to place the straightedge for the cut.
The rolls of sandpaper (4 grits) hang in the rafters behind the jig – select a girt and pull to the end of the bench – clamp and cut. Repeat if necessary. Pic. 3 shows the paper looped behind the drum sander so you get an idea of where the paper is hanging in the ceiling….....
The end of one cut is the beginning of the next – so you only need to make a starter cut (labeled on the jig as “start cut here”) once per roll. The other marks on the jig just show where to line it up the bench….
Sorry in advance to all of you who are offended by the post with a piece of masonite with Sharpie marker on it…......but it’s a real time saver and I have a chance to win 10,000 :)......you understand.
Thanks for looking…..
