Does anyone know where to buy the hook portion of hook and loop paper for a thickness sander? Also how do you attach it to the drum. Also where is a good suppler for sandpaper?

I converted my drum sander to hook and loop.
The blog is here with the link to Grizzly to purchase.
The hook sticky back fabric can be cut to fit a smaller drum if needed.
The price has gone up to $32.95 Still a great deal.
Hope this helps,

Lisa

I get mine from Grizzly. I use packing tape on each end of the drum to keep it in place.

I have a Shop Fox 26”dual drum sander that uses 3 inch hook and loop abrasive belts. Basically, you install the belts by tapering one end and just roll the belt around the drum while turning the drum. Care needs to be taken in keeping the belt flat and true while winding. When you get to the end use a Sharpie marker (or similar) and mark the two places where the belt hits the end of the drum. Cut the belt between these two marks. Apply at least three wraps of3/4 inch fiberglass strapping tape on each end and you are ready to go. Please trust me, the strapping tape is essential!!!!! This is the procedure supplied by Shop Fox that came with the machine. One good source for abrasives is http://www.2sand.com
