I have this sander too. I’ve never had trouble getting the paper to stay flat. Do you have the right size paper or do you have one for the smaller 10-20 sander. I hate to state the obvious because you are a woodworker too but are you starting the paper on the right and turning the roll away from you. These sanders a a pain to change paper on. I got rid of my 10-20 because I could never change the paper… and I have small hands!
I have a conversion kit from Grizzley that I have yet to put on… it turns the whole thing into a hook and loop affair. As soon as I use up my jet paper, I’ll install the hook and loop mechanism. Dustbunny has more experience with this and will help me with the conversion… you may want to ask her via PM.
