If you look at overall time that you are using to make all of your squares I would be guessing an hour or so, the labor brings the cost way up.  plus I have alot less time so the value of that time is even more.

So I purchase 50 two inch discs for 8 bucks or so.

Larry;

Where are you getting your discs for $8?  I'm paying $10 for 50.

Thx;
Ric

Larry, I cut the last sheet in about 5 minutes and got about 320 squares out of a single sheet.  Not too bad.

I haven't tried it, but someone told me to use a Pizza cutter on hardwood to cut sandpaper from the back side.
