I thought I'd pass on a little tip to you guys about how to keep sandpaper from tearing. Major irritation of mine is when sanding with a sanding block, or actually, sanding in general, and the paper tears and there is still plenty of good paper remaining. Duct Tape. Run a strip down the back and the paper holds up until the grit is gone...

Yeah, I was going through my sandpaper today, cleaning up my mess (hehehe) and came across one old strip and went, "How the hell did I forget about this trick?" So, I thought I'd pass it along. Eight inches of duct tape is soooo much cheaper and less annoying than having to replace the paper after it gets caught on an edge and you're four strokes into it...

Yours is all done after 4 strokes ?

Wow poor staying power lol.

Great tip in all seriousness, it can be annoying if you have bought some decent paper only to have it rip. thanks dude.

I heard about this a few years back, and nearly forgotten about it because I don't do much sanding. Thanks for reminding me!

Actually, do it before you even start to use the paper. It should keep it from need of repair (Within reason).
