I really dislike doing this but I just have to brag about my good fortune.
First I bought a 16-32 drum sander at a fair price and I just happen to have found (a couple years ago) a place that has roll paper in all grtis for a more than fair price.
Today I realized that some of them would work on my drum sander if I cut the taper on both ends. So I measured a piece (92”) cut the taper on each end and installed it on the drum – it worked !
Now the good part, I’m attaching a couple pictures of 4 rolls that are about 150’ and longer that I bought for $15
One day next week I’ll go up and see if I can find some more 3” in various grits. I should add that paper even wider will work if the price is right because it cuts very easy using my Stanley 14-553 cutters. It cuts clean and doesn’t leave any fuzz.

Are you familiar with that phrase used around here? You suck! :)

Great find. I just got my Jet 1020 delivered today and will probably be needing some of this.

The least you can do is give up the name of this seller.

Sweet, ain’t it nice when a plan comes together.

yeah, I know. I probably saved hundreds of $$$
pretty sure he doesn’t ship at all because of the scatterd atmosphere but if you need some paper I’ll see what I can find, just let me know.
You know this cloth backed paper is *heavy right ?
I just weighed the one roll that’s marked 180×3” x 50yds – it’s 6 lbs.
