    Sanding Disk paper removal

    I have a 10 inch sanding disk for use on my TS. It's time to replace the sand paper. I have been attacking it with Acetone, an old chisel and a hammer. Is there a better way?

    Thanks, DKT

    Heat.........use a heat gun and a little patience. Then clean of old adhesive with acetone after.

    I've always had good luck with a razor blade and goof off. Acetone evaporates pretty quickly, and the goof off seems to hang around a bit longer.

    Yes, Goof Off, that's what does it! But no razor blades, I like my fingers. I found a gallon of Goof Off at our recycling center, but where can I buy it? Thanks for the suggestion.

    Just saw both Goof Off and Goo Gone at my local home depot.

    Many glues, especially those for price tags, jar labels, stick-on restroom signs, etc., soften very quickly with lighter fluid. Soften them and then wipe off with a rag or two depending on the size.

    I have not tried it on sandpaper sticky. However, I would expect it to. Just dampen with lighter fluid. Then, very easily, scrape off with a putty knife, edge of a square shank screwdriver, sample credit card, or doggone near anything else. Wipe with rag dampened with the lighter fluid and wipe dry.

    Enjoy,

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
