Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage Great Idea For Sandpaper Storage No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Sandpaper is always a pain to store and organize. I previously had built a bulky and definitely not portable storage rack for my sandpaper. I saw this plastic file folder yesteday while in office Depot and a flourescent light bulb went off…but that’s a different story.
For $10 this was a perfect solution for storing my sandpaper and making it easy to carry around to wherever I needed sandpaper. I addition to the 9×11” sheets I bought it for I can also put round orbital discs in it.
The hanging file folders make it easy to label and organize the sandpaper.
I just threw out my old bulky sandpaper storage rack.

I just got back from another drive to Office depot and bought another one…slightly larger. I currently keep all my owners manuals in the file folders in my desk but thought this might be better since I could store the manuals right in my workshop.

That is a good idea. Think I’m going to keep an eye out for one. Price is good.

Thats is absolutely genius!!

I am now really glad I didnt make one of those elaborate cabinets for storing my essential paper…Now I can use that plywood for something else.

Amazing! This is great. I was sitting in the shop yesterday trying to figure out what to do with all the zillions of types of paper (5 hole, 8 hole, pads, 1/4 sheet, full sheet). This is genius! No more drawer of crap I dig through each time!!!!

That is a great idea, worth filing for a patent, no pun intended. I will run out and grab one this weekend before one of the wood working supply houses finds out and marks them up 1000%
