About 3 1/2 months ago, I reviewed a little sand paper holder from 3M (the Sandblaster) that I really like so much better for many sanding chores then the chunky clunky sanding block. You can read the review here if you’d like to: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/2190

3M has the little packs of sandpaper for it that contains 8 sheets 2 1/4 by 5 1/2. I initially bought the holder and one pack each of 80, 120 and 220 grit paper for it.

Since then, I realized that if I buy the same 3M sandpaper in the full sheet size, I get 3 each 9×11 sheets… which will cut to 24 of the little sheets (with no waste) and at about the same price as the 8 little sheets.

I am using an inexpensive Fiskar paper cutter that I’ve had for years (and have used numerous times to cut 1/4 sheets for a sander).

That’s it. Cheap, ain’t I ? ;=)
