When creating multiple pads of paper at a time, the fastest and easiest solution is to use a padding press machine. This pad press vice allows you to create very large stacks of paper that, after the padding glue is applied and dried, can be cut down to smaller pads of paper using a padding knife. But how do you create consistent paper pad thicknesses? With a pad counter! These handy little padding tools feature an adjustable bar that hold firm in-place once set, so you can set how thick you want your pads to be and use it to properly separate multiple stacks, adding chip board sheets between stacks. Built for stability, padding counters have a solid wood handle for comfort with a chrome plated steel spade for durability. If you need an easy and efficient way to measure where pads of paper need to be separated, buy a pad counter online. We offer them in three sizes, including 2", 4", and 5" pad counter options.

Assemble your pad counter by inserting the bar into the slot on the handle.
Manually create one stack of paper in your desired thickness and clamp the spade and "L" portion of the bar around a stack of paper, squeezing it closed.
To tighten it into place, simply rotate the handle.
Place the spade onto the top if a stack of paper, placing the bar in-between sheets, and repeat this process for your entire stack to create perfectly consistent thicknesses.
