There’s no real good way to store your collection of cutting, grinding and sanding discs in your toolbox. They either end up mixed in with your tools or tossed together in a drawer. In either case, it’s a pain to sort through them every time you have to switch to a different disc.

As it turns out, 4″ discs fit rather nicely into CD spindles! If you don’t already have one at home you can find them for about $2 online. A medium-sized spindle like the one in the photo can hold about 20 to 30 discs depending on type. Just group your discs with the type you use the most on top, or use a separate spindle for each type if you have a lot of discs. The best part is that you’ve now freed up space in your toolbox for even more tools!
