Topic tags/keywords: question sanding

I build bamboo fly rods and need to find a glue to adhere sandpaper to aluminum disks of a roughing mill spinning 12,000 on a router. Epoxy and contact cement fail, CA glue works ok. Any suggestions?

Contact cement
but your speed sounds to fast to sand anything though

I should follow up and add that the 36/50 grit is really cutting the strips into rough 60 degree triangles.

I would go with the pre-made diamond or carbide disks. You can pick up the small ones for a rotary tool or big ones that they use on angle grinders. You would go through the sandpaper too fast at those speeds.
