We have a few sheet sanders in the wood room. These can work with lengths of sandpaper cut off a roll.
Proposal is to buy 3 toilet roll dispensers, a pair of shears and 3 starter rolls of sandpaper, in grits 60, 120 and 180. They would be mounted onto a piece of plywood I already have.
I would suggest the sandpaper would become a consumable in these 3 sizes. This would have to be approved in the next members meeting to become a consumable.
Buying sandpaper on rolls is far cheaper than buying sheets, so I think it is in the members benefit that the space buys a couple of type on the usual ‘fair use’ basis.
I chose 60, 120 and 180 because anything less than 60 and you should probably use a plane, anything over 180 and you get through sheets too quick and should probably just buy your own.
To be installed on a plank of wood in the wood room on a wall.
£30.53 with ~£5 per roll ongoing consumable costs as the rolls are replaced.
