If you have a 1/3 sheet or 1/4 sheet finish sander, then you know that pre-cut sheets of sandpaper can be purchased, but how many times have you cut your own from a full sheet? You probably cut it crooked with a utility knife, dulled your scissors, or tore the sheet.
Well not any more. Now you can easily cut perfectly straight 1/4, 1/3 or 1/2 sheets every time.
(1) 10" hacksaw blade (longer blades can be used, but you will need to adjust the design to fit.)
(2) #6 x 3/4" round head wood screws
Step 1: Layout
To save yourself a step, you can also download our .DXF and CorelDRAW files at http://www.lime3D.net/instructables/sandpaper_cutter.zip
Tip: Vector cutting material with settings that do not cut all the way through your material will result in razor sharp text and images.
Step 3: Finish woodwork
Sand the edges and round off the corners with a sander, the flat areas (to remove any soot marks) with a finish sander, and drill pilot holes for the screws as shown.
