Fabuladico Fabuladico writes: The sander I use most often uses 1/3 sheets (the usual). Long ago, I made a jig similar to this one. It basically has a backstop (Made from a paint stir stick) and a base (made from scrap) with a slot cut at the precise width of the sanspaper I need for that sander. All I do is take a sheet, set it against the backstop, then use a utility knife and follow the slot. It works great and is so simple anyone could do it.

When I was at Office Depot I also purchased a small plastic hanging file folder with a hinged lid and handle for $9.95 and use it for storing and sorting sheets of sandpaper.
for under $25 I now have a way to store and cut sandpaper.
