I’ve been thinking to buy this machine or not ..I stopped by the price of sanding sleeves! I tried to make them myself, and eventually bought the machine.yet it was a test, but I think they will work.

Hi RemboI was not criticizing you making your own sleeves. in fact I think it’s pretty darn creative,like most of the things you do.I don’t know were you would buy your sleeves but I don’t pay $10 for one sleeve unless it’s the largest ones .I find they cost any where from $1.50 – $3. eachhttp://www.amazon.com/Porter-Cable-777502203-4-Inch-Spindle-Sanding/dp/B00004Z07B/ref=sr_1_11?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1348427873&sr=1-11&keywords=sanding+sleeves
Some times even cheaper on e bayhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Jet-Aluminum-oxide-sanding-sleeves-9-x-1-x-60-Grit-4-pk-spindle-Drum-sander-/190727685386?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c6841850a

Rembo, It will work, I burned up my 1/4 sleeve and as you know it I did not have a extra so I used the sticky back paper and wrapped it around the steel spindle to get through the project. I did however find it better by using a 1/4 long wooded dowel and sprayed some extra sticky stuff on it then wrapped it with the sticky back. Mine is a Oliver OSS. I can take the spindle shaft off and put a dowl in it and tighten the set screw and good to go, Wood is not as strong as the steel but in a pinch it worked. The darn things are pricey as you say.
Oh forgot, if you do the dowel spindle trick, try using some CA it really sticks, but a real pain getting off. I figured what the heck when I was in a bind, I cut narrow strips then wrapped it.

If you can, try to see if you can convert it to a hook & loop system. You can then simply buy rolls of paper and have really cheap changes. This also allow really fast paper changes – bonus!
Here’s a link to my Rigid Conversion I did a while ago:
Hope this helps!
