So everyone probably already does this, but I thought I'd share anyway.

I made a couple of these by cutting strips of sandpaper and sticking them back to back (using double sided tape) on some pinned blades that I no longer use. Surprised at how well they work. Easy to make in whatever grits you need.

I've bee doing this for a while. I started with just strips cut from a sanding belt but it would break pretty quick and they were not stiff enough for some things, Now I put carpet tape on the back of the sanding belt and cut it into 1/4 inch wide strips that I stick on a wide blade back to back.

Very cool idea. I have been beating myself up trying to sand in tight spaces. I will definitely use this idea.

Thanks,

It works very well form me. If you are careful you can even get into some pretty tight corners.

I'm using 120 grit aluminum oxide sanding belts. Paper backed sandpaper doesn't last very long.
