Great Porter Cable Sanding Roll
By Gerald T. Leitz
We do alot of sanding of furniture. This roll was purchased to fill a temporary void, before I would purchase from our regular supplier. It was supprising that it was such a superior quality, lasting as much as twice as long as our previous paper. Highly recommended.

Lasts for several 4 x 8 plywood sheets on second pass. I use #80 for the rough pass on cabinet grade plywood. Just the right amount of stick for my Bosch 1/2 sheet sanders. No tares, no clogs makes this my choice for high production and low cost.

Great stuff! - Wish I knew this years ago
I buy sandpaper by the box, and have burned through many boxes. But only recently did a friend mention this adhesive-backed paper, and I'm glad he did. Durability-wise, it performs considerably better than regular sand paper, but what makes it so useful is the adhesive back. Here a few random points:
1. Less waste - you adhere a piece to the face of your sanding block, and don't have to wrap any paper around the sides. Result - you use 100% of the paper for sanding
2. For precise sanding, stick a piece of this paper at the very edge/corner/whatever of a sanding block, and you use the straight edge to get into tight corners, etc.
3. Need a third hand? Stick a piece of the paper to a piece of wood and clamp that wood to your workbench. Then, for small pieces, use both hands to slide the piece back and forth over the flat (and immobile) sandpaper. Hint: cut a piece or two of the paper and adhere to the "top side" of the piece you are sanding. This gives you great grip on the top as you slide the piece back and forth over the horizontal paper. Update: I found an old sample floor tile - it was very smooth and now serves as a great flat sanding surface with adhesive sandpaper (plus I can clean off residual adhesive easily with lacquer thinner)
Eventually the "stickyness" gives out on the paper - especially for the "gripping" pieces mentioned above, after you swap them a few times. The grit is still good, but the pieces won't stick. I use them like regular paper then.
I bought several different grits, and use both sides of several boards to stick on successive grits.
