Topic tags/keywords: sander question

I’m looking for a source for 1/4 sheet non-adhesive paper with holes that will fit a a Bosch 1297DK sander. I want to buy the paper in larger packs that 5.

Any ideas?

By the way…This is a great sander! I would highly recommend it. The paper change out is probably the easiest of the 1/4 sheet sanders.

A neat jig was posted on LJ that you can use to quickly cut full sheets into 1/4 sheets.

If you go that way you can buy any sandpaper you want in almost any quantity you want

Thanks for the suggestions. I was hoping for 1/4 sheets pre-punched for dust collection. I can’t even find a source for Bosch 1/4 sheets that have pre-punched holes. I’ve tried punching the holes myself with the included punch press but have not been pleased with the results.

My Riged sander has a punch that puts holes in the paper. You can also buy a hollow punch. I think it might be called a gasket punch set. I’ve gotten them at Harbor Freight.

If you had a wooden jig with holes that you could place the punch in the right place. You could punch a stack at the same time.
