Keep it handy

by Phil Colson

When I was visiting Al Stirt this past September I noticed a handy way he uses to keep his sanding disks easy to find and easy to reach.

Al had put a strip of Velcro on a piece of wood mounted vertically on his lathe. On the strip he had Velcro discs arranged from low to high grits.

I used his little trick and mounted a strip of Velcro horizontally above my lathe so all I have to do is reach up and get the grit I need at any time and then when I'm done I PUT IT BACK.

The placement has to be in an area close to the lathe and out of the shavings.

I wish for all of you a great holiday season and happy turning.
