Maybe it’s wet, maybe it’s cold weather. Laura Kampf’s beautiful fabric sets off the sandpaper, which is rolled into a reel as soon as it is packaged. So you can understand why she is eager to build a storage system that can flip as easily as a record box, but also provide enough pressure to keep files flat.
Although (Laura) didn’t know what the final result would be, she started – a good way to get more projects off the drawing board and across the finish line. She succeeded because she came up with a good idea in making the box and fixed her finger joints together with a beautiful cam clip when the glue dried. Now that she has a bunch of cam clamps of different lengths, why not use them?
[Laura] there are two main categories of sandpaper – paper backed and fabric backed – and they are made into a box with two clips. She connects these pins with a DIY handle to coordinate the movement of the cam, so all she has to do is pull out, flip the paper, and push the handle back and down to re pressurize the stack for storage. Be sure to view the build and demo videos after the break.
Although DIY fixtures are usually wood and metal products, it’s a good thing to have 3D printing in your corner.
