If the reed were secured to the table of a mouthpiece, such that a
significant portion of the tip extended beyond the tip of the mouth-
piece, you would sand right-to-left-to-right (or left/right/left)
across the tip of the reed -- not forward-to-back (or backward-to-
forward). Does that clear it up for you? Of course, including the
mouthpiece in my example was merely to provide an orientative refer-
ence. When sanding the tip of a reed, I recommend that you first
remove it from the mouthpiece.
