I know that going to the store and seeing what your getting is great. Sometimes you can catch a deal on ebay with these sanding drums. I personally have never used them, but was thinking about purchasing them. Usually they come with 5 sanding drums and then misc. size pieces of sand paper the fit the drums. The price on ebay is about 1/2 the cost from harbor frieght. Has anyone ventured into the ebay ones?
