Google for “4.5 inch sanding sleeves” should give you smome options. I find that I have to buy from one of the abrasive specialist if I want to buy a lot of one grit otherwise I get a lot of sleeves that I will never use.

I have not used H-F’s sanding sleeves; but have bought their sanding belts for years. When i first had a belt sander I bought belts from the normal (Lowe’s H-D Sears-etc.) suppliers. One time I bought H-F belts just to try them as the others were gobbling up my non-existent budget. They lasted better than the ones I had previously bought. I have purchased my sanding belts from them ever since.

When i need sleeves or belts for my Grizzle spindle/belt sander I am going to try H-F for those too. http://www.harborfreight.com/80-grit-sanding-sleeves-6-pc-60605.html
They do have several other grits available too.

I have the HF model sander I bought my sleeves from Klingspors. I have been using the same set for about 2 years and they still sand very well
