Re: Proper way to prepare porch flooring for 2nd coat of Cabot's Australian Timber Oi
A 4" palm sander should only take a 1/4 sheet of sandpaper. The best way to section sandpaper is to fold it back and forth on a crease line to weaken the paper and give you a tear line. It helps if you have a sharp edge to help tear the sheet along the crease line. In this case, you will fold the paper in half lengthwise, pull a nice tight crease line, then tear along the line. Fold in half again lengthwise and tear again, this will quarter the sheet and it should tuck nicely under the catches on the sander.
In my defense, I did say follow the instruction on the product label.
