Found this on the net today.

Might be something we could build and use.

Photo show 80 grit, a little too course for me, but looks easy to change to 100 or 200.

Hi, I wanted to tell you about a sander similar to this one. In issue # 45 of wood carving illustrated they make a sander out of bent plastic molding and a sanding belt. I belong to a carving group in Clifton Park New York and our group uses Abranet sanding cloth and instead of using screws I thought of using velcro because abranet has a fuzzy cloth back that sticks to the back of the cloth. I suggest you use velcro with a maxium strength of about 5 pounds holding power, stronger tends to pull off the fuzz on the back of the cloth. Abranet lasts longer than regular sand paper and just tap it and the sanding dust falls out. Our club was putting velcro on tongue depressors with abranet and I had made a bunch of the sanders but while I was sitting there I thought of the velcro on the sanders I had made. We get our Abranet from supergrit.com. They just put it in wood carving illustrated this month. I hope this helpful to you. PS: you can change the abranet in seconds. I've made over 100 of the sanders of many different sizes

Great idea, what type of wood would you use to make one.
I imagine it would need to be a soft wood to be bent
Cheers Andy
