Whether you're cutting sandpaper to fit your palm sander, or just dividing the sheet into more manageable sizes for hand sanding, our Sandpaper Cutter will do the job quickly, cleanly and effortlessly. Just slide a standard 9'' x 11'' sheet of sandpaper into the slot, align it with the fence at the bottom and the appropriate reference line on the on-board scale, and tear it off. Sheets can be sub-divided as required to fit 1/4-, 1/3- and 1/2-sheet sanders.


  • Built from sturdy 18 gauge galvanized steel
  • Sticker displays gauge lines for common sandpaper sizes
  • Mounting holes allow you to mount it to the wall or to your bench (mounting hardware not included)
  • Can also easily be used free-hand
  • Hang hole provided for easy storage

Why didn’t I splurge on this sooner?
One of those things you are really glad to have after you’ve used it ... it’s a one time purchase that will work for as long as I’m sanding - save the scissor hassle and bad tears after folding and get this thing — I’ve been sanding bathroom cabinets and already consider it has paid for itself

I use this to cut 41/2" sheets of heavy duty sandpaper for my flap sander. No need to measure, just line up with guides. Works great, is very sturdy and the hole for hanging is convenient. Made a fussy job easy!

because my scissors aren't for that my wife says
Pablo D. T on Sep 28, 2018
I have 1/3 and 1/2 sheet sanders. Finding paper for both of them is difficult and expensive. Being able to create my own sheets from full size ones solves two problems with one tool.
James R L on Aug 1, 2018
Good price and seems to be constructing very well. Much better than making one.
Eric B on Jul 29, 2018
Total impulse buy, but it was on sale and will prolong the life of my scissors and save me about 5 minutes of measuring (spread out over 10 years :) )
Jordan F on Jul 11, 2018
Use a lot of sandpaper and always having to cut it. The tool looks to be useful.

kenneth b on Apr 18, 2018
I've been using either a utility knife or hacksaw blade to cut sandpaper, often with less than satisfactory results. Hope this improves those results.

Just got tired of using sandpaper with the tooth striations that are left when you cut it with an old saw blade. Also tired of wearing out scissors.

Can this be used to cut a narrow 1.5" strip of paper for woodturning?
James on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it will cut it just fine.
Does the Rockler Sandpaper Cutter work with 3M No Slip-Grip Sandpaper?
Thomas C on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I have cut all kinds of sand paper with this cutter and it works just fine!
Does this cutter work on CLOTH BACK sandpaper???
K O on Aug 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does!
Is it better to tear the sandpaper with the grit side up or down?
Bob J on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I always tear it grit side up for a couple reasons. One is that it doesn't scratch up the metal plate and the other is that it doesn't slip around as much.
