Many of you may already do this, but for the LJs that don’t. This is a method to easily sand the holes we make with a hole saw.
Use the discs that have been cut out, glue several together using a bolt in the center to clamp them together. When dry, cut a V notch in the side so that both ends of the sandpaper can be inserted. Then push a small wedge into the V notch to anchor the sandpaper.
You now have a sander that is nearly the same size as the hole you created. This sander, being the same size, will give you a more even sand while helping keep the hole round.
Now for the oscillating part of it! Mount you new tool in the drill and when sanding, move it up and down. (-: (sorry but I couldn’t resist).
I normally make one of these for each job that needs it. If you are going to be doing a lot of sanding, then you can fit some rubber around the discs to cushion the paper but don’t make it too thick as the tool will be bigger than the hole you want to sand. I use sand paper from a used belt sander as it is tougher and will last better than paper backed type.
Good luck and hope this saves you some money and time.
