The sanding pads for the Flex Drum Sander are 2 3/4" x 7" available in 80, 120, 180, and 220 grits.
We sand the most of the wood down to various thicknesses with the 80 grit pads. We go through more of the 80's than the other grits. Sample order; four 80 grit, two 120 grit, one 180 grit, and one 220 grit.
To improve the life of the pad try the following tips:
• Keep moving the wood you are sanding across the entire surface of the pad. Keeping the wood in one area and pressing hard can cause the foam to shrink.
• The pad may be a tight fit onto the shaft, if you have a problem Lightly coat the inside of the pad with liquid Ivory soap.
• If the sleeve becomes loose from the pad you can use a little glue to hold the sleeve.
Use the Abrasive Cleaning Stick often to clean the pad.
Please note: As of 2012 the manufacturer started making the sanding pads bigger. The style of the arbor also changed, adding ribs that run the length of it to help grip the larger sanding pads. If you purchased a Flex Drum Sander before this time you may want to purchase the new style arbor. (Flex Drum Sander)
