A better mousetrap
A much better solution than the old school rubber block. 1/4 sheets fit better and more surface area is available for sanding. Replacing sheets is easier too. Handle is comfortable, even for large hands.

This is my second one
I have one for 150 and now one for 220, because I was always swapping between grits when I had only 1. Fits my big hands well, has weight to it so you can sand flatter than if you had to push with your hand. Probably get one for 320 and 400 in the future.

Love these!
I have a few of these and I love them. I am able to use a larger portion of the sandpaper vs. the other type, the surface is flat, and the bottom pad is dense.

Sanding
I bought one of each color and have each one of them color coded to a different grit of sandpaper. Makes it guick and easy to pick up the grit that I’m wanting to use.

full use sanding block
The block size and shape allows one to use a full sheet of sanding paper without any waste. The block can also hold four sheets at a time thereby saving load and reload time. I've got three. thereby minimizing having to load the right grit for each finishing step.

Hands Down, the Best Sanding Block I've Ever Used
Best Sanding Block I've ever used. Sandpaper doesn't come out while I'm sanding and is comfortable to handle.

This is an excellent product. I have three that I keep different grits on so as not to keep changing paper.

Works really well. It's easy to load, holds sandpaper securely and is comfortable to hold while sanding. When it went on sale, I couldn't resist buying a couple more.
Bruce B on Mar 18, 2019
I have used this sanding block for a couple years and the thing I like best about it is how easy it is to put on the sand paper, and how well it holds on to the sand paper. With this purchase I now have one for each grit of sand paper I use. Makes hand sand through the grits much faster.
