Great sanding block.

I found this sanding block at a woodworkers show and it's great
for auto work.
It takes exactly 1/5th a std size sheet of paper so you
can cut a sheet with no waste.
It has a great stailnless clamping system with a firm bottom.
It really works great for wet blocking.
They're not cheap but thought some of you may be interested.

Thanks for the link. It seems they were originally made for auto body work. The nice thing is you can buy different colors for different grit paper.

They feel really comfortable to the hand and I think the
extra firmness to the bottom makes it good for blocking.
I bought mine two yrs ago and couldn't find a place to buy another
one until I stumbled on this site last week, that's why I posted it.
They're hard to find.

I don't have firsthand experience with that particular block, but it LOOKS just like the one I saw at Harbor Freight last night!

Interesting, thanks for the link.

The manufacturer is Time-Shaver Tools. They specialize in "time shaving tools for the autobody trade". They have more tools on their website: TimeShaverTools.com.

Also, I've added a sentence about this to the Sanding section of the Body and Exterior Tips wiki page. Here's a link to the section: sanding tips.

Looks like you can order the padding and attach it to your blocks for $6.

Go to online order page

Just an update.
I saw this sander for sale at "Woodcraft", a national woodworking store.
Just in case anyone would like to see one, maybe you can find
a store near you. They're still about $20.00 though.

These sanders have been out for a little bit now, and do they ever work so great. A fellow assiciate uses these in his paint shop. All the technicians like the ease of use these offer. They come in different sizes as well. Nice stuff.

Correction to the above.
The sander takes 1/4th of std sheet of paper, not 1/5th.
It's easy to fold a sheet in half twice to cut 4 equal pieces.
(couldn't find an edit feature to correct original post)
Sorry for the typo
