Here’s a 10 minute project for you. Take an old hacksaw blade and screw it down to a scrap piece. Finish it by drawing lines and notes on where to line up your sandpaper sheets for common cuts.

I did one too after making a cabinet to hold my sandpaper. Basically the same concept, works great.

If you have a problem slipping the paper under the blade, try putting a small washer between board and blade. That raises the blade off the board just a little. A hole in top lets you hang the cutter on the wall or elsewhere.

I did the same thing long ago. I do like your addition of drawing lines for various sizes you would need. The only different thing I did was to add a washer between the blade and the board to raise it up enough to get the paper underneath it a bit easier.

I have one that I attached a block or “fence” to slide the sandpaper up to and cut, I have two blades though for different widths.

Very simple design….Probably a lot faster than folding the sandpaper in half twice and cutting into quarters with scissors….Thanks for sharing

Brilliant idea! I just finished making mine but I did it slightly different. I sharpened the edge of the hacksaw blade, so when my sandpaper is at the line I can fold it back over the blade, then pull it through on an angle. This gives me a nice crisp cut edge, rather than tearing it.

Thanks for sharing! :)
