Sanding Disc Storage - Stick a wide piece of velcro on the side of your headstock. When sanding at the lathe, just peel off the used disc (if it still has life left in it) and stick it on the velcro on the headstock to await the next piece. It can be wide and long enough to accommodate 6 + discs. This also means when you set up to start sanding, you'll have all the discs out that you'll need on the velcro awaiting their turn.
