Topic tags/keywords: question

I am looking for some input on paper for my drum sander. I have a Supermax 19-38 and have yet to find a paper that I like. Does anyone have any suggestions of something that has worked well for them?

FAIW, I buy mine in bulk and cut to length.

No particular brand.

I use Klingspor precut rolls for my Jet 19-38. Fits great. Works great.

I mostly use the 80 grit and 120 grit.

Sanding any finer doesn’t eliminate the need for random orbit sanding, so I don’t bother.

Compared to the no name rolls from the tool store, the Klingspor is a much better product. They also make excellent ROS discs. That’s actually all I use.

Good luck with it.

Agree with pinto... I bought 80, 120, 180 and 240… Use the 80 and 120 but the 180 and 240 are still nearly full rolls.
Found that buying in bulk lets you go that better quality.

Giving brands would be a waste of time as I doubt you’d come to Australia to buy sandpaper.

I buy bulk, usually Klingspor, and cut my own. I quit going finer than 120 grit since it did nothing but burn no matter how careful I was.
