I give up. Previously, someone else posted a forum topic about some round plastic containers that screwed together which looked perfect for storing sanding disks in. I saved the topic on a computer that has since decided it no longer wants to fire up. I have searched Lumberjocks, the internet, under my pillow, etc. and can not find the forum topic or alternatively the products / vendor, who featured these wonderous products. I am hoping someone else saw the forum and either remembered it better than I did or actually purchased these containers. Either way I am looking for leads on where I might find these containers. Any help is always appreciated.

Dont know about these 6” plastic containers, but here’s what I made to store my 6” sanding discs in. Made it from pine, the plexi was a piece I had laying around. The hinges and the latch were in my “junk bin” ... Total cost? ... a big ZERO !

Truth be told, the empty slot at the bottom was because I MIS-COUNTED the number of grits I had – DOH!

Joe, at least you have room to grow! Nice cabinet.

No idea on the plastic containers. Try Tupperware. I’ve seen turners store their small sanding discs in plastic containers or pvc tubes.

I have trouble aligning the holes on the disc to the sander, so I made a holder about 2 feet long with sets of 4 inch high dowels (3/8 if I recall ) slightly chamfered on top. It has 6 or 7 pairs, so I can hold perhaps 50 upside down on each pair. I just put the sander on the 2 dowels (roughly aligned with the disks) and slide up the top piece for perfect alignment. They increase in grit from 40 on the left to 400 on the right.

I really can’t imagine a way to store them with quicker or easier access.

Probably talking about the cases you used to (not sure if you still can) buy bulk CD/beds in?

Can’t remember where I got them, but some time ago a 25 pack of 5” Velcro back sanding discs I bought came in a flip top plastic container, sort of like thin Tupperware.

Was it this? Not plastic, but PVC on a lazy susan. Not a bad idea.

Thanks to everyone for their great suggestions.

I will continue my search for the original post out of sheer stubbornness.

It just drives me nuts when I can’t find something I know I’ve seen. Oh well.
