Don’t Waste Sand Paper

In my “How To” videos, I use a little strip of sand paper to do small sanding  jobs.  After viewing one of the videos, a woodworker asked me why I tore my sand paper into strips instead of using the full sheet,  just folded  up. That’s a good question, but I don’t tear up good sand paper, I use scrap paper.  When I take the used sand paper off my palm sander, I tear the unused edges (from under the clamps) off and use them to do my small sanding jobs.  I can’t see throwing away my used sander sheets before removing the part of them that can be reused.  Sand paper is too expensive.

I made a short video to show you what I mean.
