I bought a Delta 18-36 drum sander used. I am looking for where to buy the sandpaper rolls. I would prefer to buy the pre-cut taper but if I have to I could cut my own. I’m not having much luck finding the consumables. The link to Delta replacement rolls from Amazon says they are out of stock and don’t know if/when they will be available. Can anyone tell me where else to look? If anyone is cutting their own, how are you doing it? Thanks.

Steve’s Wholesale in Tulsa sells replacement strips BUT they are 2” wide and a PITA. I but the 3” bulk rolls from Supergrit and cut my own. Cut them with a pair of scissors. Thetaper on the end will require a little fiddling to get the first one right. Then use it as the pattern for subsequent ones. Its really very simple. I cut several strips of each grit in advance of need which saves a lot of time. There will be a small difference in length between grits as the coarser grit paper is thicker but I have yet to cut a strip too short. Hope this helps. Note that the taper will be different on 2” than 3”.

What weight backing is best. It looks like the coarser grits are X weight and anything about about 80 grit is J weight. Will J weight work ok?

All of my grits are x weight , I think. Ask the Supergrit person who answers the phone what is best for you. They are very helpful. I was going to order alum zirconium thinking that more expensive meant better quality. They explained why I didn’t want that even though it cost them $ to do so. I appreciated that.
