It seems that no other shop resource is treated with such obliviousness as sandpaper.Although sandpaper is responsible for the last steps of shaping much of our work, it doesn't receive the same heed as hand tools, or even portable tools.
And, for obvious reasons, it doesn't have the same s*x appeal as a hand tool.It is also disposable and cheap.Still, I tell my students: Although it may seem that sandpaper is a mundane inconsequential instrument, we still have to treat it with respect, and we have to make prudent use of it by avoiding wastefulness and trying to exhaust the use of each piece until it literally falls apart.
While some of my students have been very respectful of the sandpaper that I give them, others have used it incorrectly, allowed it to erode too fast and have asked for replacement sheets too often.In the past, we did not have a system to control the wasteful use of sandpaper.
In fact, we even allowed our students to cut their own portions from the standard sheets that were available on demand.And you have no idea how 'creative' students can be when in need to cut sandpaper...
