It’s a vintage PowerKraft belt/disc sander, cast iron, which I scored last night. It came with a batch of belts but no discs.

Do you use peel and stick, or adhere your own? If the latter, what adhesive?

I recall on one I had eons ago there was a stick of stuff that you held to the spinning disc and the heat softened and distributed it. I don’t recall how easy/difficult that was to remove.

Thanks for your real world help.

Before I’d spend a premium on 10 inch discs or pulled (the rest of) my hair out trying to find them, I’d buy 12 inch discs and cut them down. Tin snips and 10 minutes to do a dozen, I’d guess. Much bigger selection of grits, adhesives and weight at that size, and they are probably less expensive because of volumes.

I don’t know about the “stick of stuff”, I have heard of using a heat gun to release the adhesive. If you have an old CO2 fire extinguisher around, extreme cold will do in just about any adhesive. I just use some M-1 Remover or acetone or lacquer thinner or whatever is laying around to get the goo off I don’t change them often enough to remember what I used last time or to worry about it, though.

I hav e a faint memory of the adhesive sticks, but that is old technology. I’d go with the peel and stick or second choice with a spray adhesive. I tried contact cement once on my ShopSmith 12” disc, but I wouldn’t recommend it (it took to much effort to peel and clean the disc plate). That’s my $0.02
