|Tip: Sandpaper Holder|
Clothespins epoxied to a board work great for holding strips of sandpaper. Write the grit number on each clothespin to keep the different grits separated and within easy reach.
~ Pierre Delétraz, France
To expand on the tip for holding sandpaper (above), one could cut the base board to fit the space between the body of the lathe. That holds the holder in place and keeps it where you want it. It would also free up both hands so one hand could open the clothespin and the other could retrieve the sandpaper.
