Re: Sanding Blocks

I use 1" x 3" x 12" pine blocks, cut from a length of 1 x 3 knot free pine for most of my sanding. 1/3 of a sheet of sandpaper is folded folded over the edges and held on with 4 thumbtacks on each side. Easy to change the paper. I have quite a few with different grades of paper on them.

I also have a couple of 36" aluminum sanding tools, but only use them occasionally - for edge sanding sheeting and finish sanding a wing.

Re: Sanding Blocks

I chop off a 2x4, wrap sand paper around it and use a staple gun. That, or a mouse sander...super little tool. For smaller things I just lay soft sand paper on the table. I'm so high tech.

Re: Sanding Blocks

The Easy Touch ones are nice. I also used some aluminum L shaped extrusions I bought at home depot. They are about 2" on a side and I cut them to length, 12" 18" etc. A light dusting of 3M && spray and the sand paper of choice sticks fine. trim excess and sand away.
