    Default Sanding Gun

    Here is a pic of a tool I made for sanding the blade of a straight razor. I have several of these. First you cut a strip of sanding paper and wrap it into a roll. I use a small dowel to get it started. Then you insert it into the gun and pull it around the leather strip. Then you simply hold it tight with your finger while you sand. It doesn't slip. To feed the sandpaper, when it gets worn in one spot simply pull it backward about a half inch and then forward again and hold it with your finger when sanding. It is very easy to use and saves your hands from carpal tunnel or worse yet, a cut finger!

    Thanks, I have several others which are cut at different angles for sanding in different directions. The ends are shaped to fit the area sanded and the leather strip helps it to conform. Mack

    Post more pics. I really like your design, it puts my pink pearl erasers to shame. I would like to how you shaped the other sanders.

    OK . Here are some pics of one that holds the paper horizontal instead of vertical. I think it is easier to use than the other one but that is just my opinion. These things would be right or left handed because if made right handed for a left handed person, you would have to hold the paper with your thumb instead of your finger which is a little bit aucward.. I will be glad to make these for someone if there is a call for them. Mack
