I never used the tool, just hook my finger in there and release the catch. Klingspor paper is good, the blue stuff is great but $$$
I have been getting my paper from Peachtree Woodworking lately, great price on import sandpaper. Biggest trick is learning how much to take off in 1 pass and how fast to feed. The harder the wood the smaller amount you take off and watch the speed, burns start as resin build up on the abrasive. Clean the drum often .
