Default How do members store their sandpaper stock

After more years than I care to remember, I have kept my sandpaper in a pile in a cupboard, which isn't easy to find a particular grade. Suddenly one day last week I decided that there had to be a better way and this is what I came up with.

Same way.. only used discarded in/out file trays...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I only know of one member who might just have more sandpaper than you Al. and I'll be surprised if he doesn't post pics. I'm intrigued by all the plumbing, what is it all about?

The rest of the sanding belts are in a storage container since my belts don't fit in the box (48" 1" 1/2").

The plumbing is for my compressor. I extended my hose connectors to the other side of my shop and added a few near the compressor. Since I am a lazy person I have 3 regulators. That way I set different pressure to each outlet and don't have to change any when I go from nailing to spraying (nail guns = 90 sprayer = 40 airbrush =20 - 30).

A good, simple idea that we can all copy, Harry.

Mine is scattered around the shed under 'stuff'. I only have a few sheets of each grade.

I do the same, start to panic if I have less than 10 sheets of every grade, it's the box full of little pieces of sandpaper that I can't bear to throw out that I don't know what to do with.
