Preppin Weapon Sanding Block

I have had a set for many years and really like them as well. I also like the fact that I can grab the grit I want by color.

I have been using one of these for years as well and just recently purcahsaed another for a finer grit. I really do need to get a couple of more for different grits.

I have a set also and love 'em! They're flat and easy to change paper. Such a huge improvement over the old rubber block pads with the 3 spikes to hold the paper.

After re-reading your post Chet, I’ve never thought about clamping multiple sheets in at one time. Sounds like a great idea.

It’s unfortunate Rockler won’t let you select the color choice online and doesn’t offer a full set. Different colors for different grits sounds handy.

Thats what Krylon is for. I think a permanent sharpie would do just as well to mark the grit.

I would have purchased mine from Rockler except for the fact that I couldn't get the different colors.  I am happy  I have the different colors.

You shouldn't have t resort to this when the manufacturer offers multiple colors to begin with Rockler and maybe other places just need to make simple adjustments to the shopping cart service to take better care of the customers

I make the grits on mine but it is the color that makes it an easy grab for the grit you want.

I also like using the colors for different grits (using spectrum (or resistor) colors for grit, i.e. red = coarsest).

I also hadn't thought about stacking up several at once - smart!

I noticed these in a couple of stores, but neither of them had all of the colors.  This may be just how the manufacturer ships them.

I do use the colors for Preppin Weapon grit ID but, have other blocks and use dots.  The blocks are the black rubber ones and the dots are white paint, 1 through 5.  I don't mark with grit values, I just want to know coarse (1 dot) through fine (5 dots) as my grits vary with what I do.  I load multiple sheets on both kinds and remove them as they wear.
