Hand Sanding Disc Holder / Support pour ponçage à disque

Venant d’apprendre qu’on peut acheter un tel support de plastique pour ponçage à disque, l’idée de m’en fabriquer un m’est venue spontanément.

Just being aware that you can buy such plastic hand sanding disc holder, the idea of making my own spontaneously came up.


J’ai la chance d’avoir sous la main ce support Velcro de réserve fourni avec cette ponceuse orbitale achetée il y a quelques années.

I’m lucky enough to have on hand this spare Velcro holder provided with this random orbit sander I purchased years ago.


J’ai coupé un bloc de bois jusqu’à ce qu’il soit confortable dans ma main, soit 2-3/4″ X 4″ X 1-1/4″ (70mm X 100mm X 32mm).

I’ve cut this block of wood until it felt comfortable in my hand, which is 2-3/4″ X 4″ X 1-1/4″ (70mm X 100mm X 32mm).


J’ai arrondi les coins et tous les bords à ma ponceuse à bande d’établi.

I’ve rounded over the corners and all sharp edges at my benchtop belt sander.


Je poinçonne les endroits dédiés prévus pour quatre vis.

I punch all provided dedicated holes for four screws.



Vu le choix disponible dans mon caisson de rangement (pensez boîte d’anciens CD d’ordinateur), vous comprendrez pourquoi cet outil m’a paru intéressant !

According to the available choice in my storage bin (think old computer CD box), you will understand why this tool looked appealing to me !


Voici mon nouvel outil manuel.

Here is my new hand tool.


Il est bien centré, c’est une illusion d’optique.

It is definitively centered, this is an optical illusion.



J’ai finalement eu l’idée de l’entouré de ruban de tissu athlétique (pensez ruban de hockey) pour améliorer la prise.

Finally came up the idea of wrapping it with fabric athletic tape (think hockey tape) to improve the grip.


Regardez à gauche ce que j’ai découvert le lendemain dans une de mes boîtes de chutes. C’est le reliquat du bouchon d’un pot de plâtre brisé, lequel j’ai gardé au cas où. Aujourd’hui je suis content l’avoir fait.

Look on the left what I found the day after in one of my scrap bins. It’s the relict of the cap of a broken plaster pot, which I saved in case of. Today I’m glad I did.


J’ai enlevé (et gardé) le joint de caoutchouc et j’ai vissé de la même façon l’autre support Velcro que j’avais aussi sous la main, disons dans un tiroir !

N’est-il pas plus conforme à l’original jaune ?

I removed (and kept) the rubber gasket and I screwed the same way the other Velcro holder I also had on hand, let’s say in a drawer !

Isn’t more conform to the yellow original ?


C’est bien d’avoir le choix !

It’s good to have the choice !

    Salut Serge

    Je préfères la version 2 ( plus proche de la jaune !) elle doit aussi être plus agréable à utiliser
    quel est le rendu du ponçage ??
    Au plaisir

      Salut Jack,
      Pour moi c’est la première version. La ronde est à la limite de ma main en terme de confort de prise.
      Chose certaine, les deux me seront très utiles sans aucun doute, le temps le dira.
      Au plaisir…

    You are so organized and make so many simple but effective work aids. It has inspired me to be more organized. I find I spend so much less time searching for, or going out and buying, something I already have but can’t find. Good job.

    • Serge says:

      I agree Bill. When organized it’s easier and faster to find some thing. I still have more work to do to be organized as I would like to be.
      Best,

    Serge, I like this idea because sometimes I’m not sure if the sanding disk I’m using needs replacing but I replace it anyway because I hate sanding and don’t want to be caught wasting my time with a worn out disk. But having the ability to try it out on a hand sanding job will let me know right away if it should go in the garbage or keep working. I hate throwing something that could be of use in the garbage!
    Cheers
    Mark

    • Serge says:

      Mark, I hate sanding too. Over the years I learned that a worn disc or sandpaper is worthless to keep sanding with, therefore loosing time as you mentioned. For that reason, when the idea that it may be time to change sandpaper crosses my mind, I do it at once. However, I still keep worn out sandpaper for hand ‘touch ups’ though.

      Best,
      Serge

    I have made myself a few of these over the years Serge and use them all the time.
    Great blog post as usual my friend.

    • Serge says:

      Eric, are you telling me that you should have started a blog to share the tools you made ?
      Thanks,
      Serge
