I wasn’t sure where to post this question so please bear with me. Does anyone know a good source for 5” 8 hole adhesive sanding discs? Locally I can only find hook & loop 8 hole or adhesive without holes. Maybe they are phasing out the adhesive with holes? I found a few places online but the selection is limited. Any help is appreciated.

Depending on what brand ROS you have, you might be able to save a few bucks in the long run by changing the pad to a hook-n-loop style.

Due to all the problems years ago with the pressure sensitive adhesive getting hot while sanding and falling off, most all manufacturers have tone to hook and loop. You can change your PSA sander over to hook and loop rather easily, as there are many changeover pad products out there. I did an early Porter Cable, and it is still in my collection today.
Just Joe is right, Klingspor has a bunch of PSA discs, but to be honest, I would be thinking of changing over if you intend to use the tool for years to come.

Thanks for the helpful relies. As I said adhesive paper is getting rare around here. I will eventually change the pad on my sander but for now I have a few good leads. Thanks again.

We run Dynabrade with PSA pads. I dont agree that the PSA paper is somehow less quality than hook n loop. In fact PSA paper cost much less for equal or greater quality paper. For 34.00 I can get 100 qty of very high quality PSA disc.

So switching your pad to hook and loop would actually be doing yourself a disservice, I would want to always look to better my equipment. Changing your pads to hook n loop would be like me deciding to go from Dynabrade DA sanders to a 29.00 Black and Decker ROS :)

Of course online sources that I know of are and I also use I actually get my paper locally at Louis and Company.

If PSA paper is failing, it’s either poor quality discs or improper use. If you apply too much agressive force, you will overheat the adhesive. ROS’s don’t require a lot of downward pressure. The weight of the sander is enough for the disc to do it’s job. This applies to other types of sanders also. H&L discs are convenient if you only have one sander and need to change grits. PSA is great if you have more than one sander with a dedicated grit on each.
