maybe call them up and see if they can get a 10”? I don’t see that size on their website…

1) Atlas Press bought Power King Tools and the model 5010 same in both brands. Power King are still rare to find, but it is another place to look for parts.

2) Atlas Press was located in Kalamazoo, MI, and today Kalamazoo Industries located in same town is still producing USA made abrasive machines. Have been to Kalamazoo a number of times, it is a small town. There can not be that many disc sander producers there. Might get lucky with a call to them about the needed part?

3) Considering that Jet and Grizzly both sell a 10 disc sander combo today, and most of the designs are cloned from something old; you might want to call Grizzly parts to inquire about the current Asian Disc sander hub configuration? Modifying something close to fit should not be too hard: The stand alone 10” crapsman disc sander I formally owned had a 5/8” shaft with flat/set screw. Boring full hole diameter, and cutting threads is easy to do in aluminum using only HSS tools and some WD-40.

Best Luck.

Thanks I’ll try stockroom supply. I’ve bought and set up one of there drum sanders and the jury is still out on my review of it. I’ll check other forum posts later for troubleshooting and how to build the best top for accurate snipe free passes but that’s another topic….
And yes I’ve searched manufacturers of other 10 discs to see if any of theirs (Grizzly and Shop Fox) would fit but they use a key and allen set screw combination for mounting so I would have to helicoil it to make it fit, plus they seem to have gone to cast iron which may offer some inertia problems at startup for my motor. I’ve also found a local guy that can probably weld the original aluminum one back together but will need a lathe I would think to run and balance it.

I’ll keep looking.
