Topic tags/keywords: resource sander

I have a Wen Tabletop Spindle Sander. I’m specifically looking for packs of 220-240 grit 1/2” tubes. I can find 120 grit packaged separately, but nothing else. I tried Rockler, Woodcraft, Amazon and few others, all have multi size/grit packs with less of what I need and more of what I don’t want. I’m looking for packs of one size with one grit and multiple pieces. That way I’m not wasting money buying tubes I don’t need or want. If someone has a source, please share, thanks.

Looks like Wood Workers Supply them. I think that is your length?

McMaster-Carr has a variety of sanding sleeves available in assortments and individual grits:

Just curious, where did you buy from? I have use Klingspor for 5” RO sander disks, and should order some tubes for my spindle sander. And 150 grit is as fine as they go.
The McMaster link above was easy to follow, and they had finer grit. But I would have to cut them down to 4.5”

I bought this set of 80, 120 and 240 sleeves my Rigid OSS from amazon. I haven’t used them a lot but the quality seems to be good.

John: I ordered from McMaster and Woodcraft. 240 (ships Wednesday) and 320(7 week wait). 120 from Woodcraft (should ship in 48 hrs). The deciding factor was price. they came out pretty even. I looked at the Klingpor sight and will be surfing it more as I am not familiar with them. Unfortunately, their description on the 220 grit sleeves did not include dimensions of the sleeves.
