Topic tags/keywords: spindle sanders self adhesive sandpaper

My friend, who is a wood worker, does a lot of pro bono work for the local “Gun & Rod Club”.
He needs to borrow my Wen oscillating spindle sander and will be using the 1 1/2” or 2” diameter spindles on a project which involves sanding 70 openings with the spindle sander.
No one sells a pack of 10 or 20 1 1/2” or 2” sanding sleeves. So I was wondering if a roll of self adhesive sanding paper, cut to length to make numerous quantities of the 1 1/2” or 2” would work?
Has anyone had experience with self adhesive rolls, and used them on the spindles. Would they be too sticky and difficult to remove from the rubber spindle sleeves?
Any feed back would be grateful. Thanks

I see that Industrial Abrasives sells their sleeves in 6 packs. Not sure how good their price is though…

I don’t think it would work very well because of the seam. Why do you need so many? What grade paper? What kind of wood? I would think you could do 10 parts per sleeve at least.

Klingspor sells 5 packs for less than $6.00. I’ve had good experience with their products. Here’s the page listing 2” X 3” sleeves: Here

Good Luck!

Thank you everyone for your feedback. Greatly appreciate it.
GR8Hunter…I’d rather my friend have more than he needs. And since he’s the one doing the work, I know he puts a lot of hard physical pressure on his tools.

Sorry, broken link. LJs keeps cutting off the last parentheses. Add the “)” after you click on the link and it will get you to the right location.

I don’t have the Wen spindle sander, but a Delta. You do know, don’t you, that you can turn the sleeves upside down and use the other end of them too? That way you can get two holes per sleeve.

Xeddog, thank you I was aware of doing that, but again, I’m not the one doing the work. My friend has a tendency to push hard when running tools. I’m also not sure how thick the wood is that he’s using because it’s for a Gun Rack. Thank you again.
