    Storing sanding discs

    I have the Simon Hope sanding system with the three sizes of discs. I wanted to build a unit to store them in their respective sizes and grits. Anyway came up with an idea of small plastic containers but where to find them in the size I wanted. One wife to the rescue she went into B & m store and came back with 4 packs of containers in five colours. I needed three containers for each grit and 6 different grits.
    Each pack had 5 different coloured lids so that meant 5 grits with their own colour and the last had to be a mix of colours.
    I also found that they clip together along with my garden labeller marked each one with grit and size of disc.
    Now they are all kept tidy and easy to find size and grit of the discs.
    First photo shows what is in each pack and the second with them all filled and marked.

    Nice idea Derek. I bought some box towers from Boyes a few years ago & they work ok.

    I admire your patience in opening plastic containers, this would distress me in a very short time especially in the winter or when the plastic hardens. Does the curling ease when shut away? Mind you I never use so many ranges, off the chisel I rate at aboutat least 300 grit. Have fun.
