Has anyone changed the Grizzly 1066 drum sander to add the hook and loop conversion kit. I am looking at buying a used drum sander, but most of the complaints have been how the sandpaper has to be held with clips. I sasw the conversion kit on Grizzly’s website. I am just curious if anyone has used the kit or has a better way for the sandpaper to stay on the rollers.

Kit should be fine. We use hook loop on our dual drum sander with great success.

I bought the kit and cut it to use on my peformax 16-32. It works great for me.

I did it and could not be happier with the results.
Here is another forum post on the same subject.

I have a dual drum sander called a Canwood. It’s a generic Chinese house brand and may be the same machine. I know it’s identical to General International. Anyway I hated it until I did the grizz H&L conversion. Now I love it. All about slippage, overlapping, burning and the like.
I also built my own that works on my Shopsmith in Az. It just has an ABS pipe for a drum and it works just as well also with the grizz H&L kit.
