Synthetic wine corks work nice for cleansing abrasives. But all it takes is unintentionally bumping your fingers towards the spinning sandpaper as soon as, when the cork slips or wears down too far, to need some type of a holder for the cork that makes this process safer.
Here’s my resolution: I insert the cork right into a 4-half of″-long part of three/4″ I.D. PVC plumbing pipe. Wine corks often have an out of doors diameter of about 13/16″, which makes friction match inside this “handle.” It’s a easy repair that saves my pores and skin!
