Performax 16-32 sandpaper

I love my sander but they sure don't give the sandpaper for them away. Anybody have any good leads on sandpaper for a 16/32? Thanks and I hope everybody has a great new year!!

I buy the widest emmory cloth rolls I can fined. Usally in 80 yard rolls and 2" wide. Works real good and seems to last. Just depends on what type of wood and how much your trying to take off w/each pass. May have to play w/the angles on the ends a little until you get it just right, but sure is a lot cheaper than buying the specialty rolls from the woodworking stores.

I buy 3" wide bulk rolls from Klingspor and cut my own. Works out to about 4 bucks per or about 1/2 price of the precut stuff. Used one of the original belts for a pattern and made a template out of 1/8th inch hardboard for cutting. Hardly any waste that way.

i have boxes upon boxes of various types of sandpaper that ive collected over the years from ESTATE SALES and YARD SALES.........people usually give you a box of the stuff for $1

one thing ive learned is that woman are very ignorant to prices when it comes to selling off their husbands stuff ''$1 for those junk Snap on screwdrivers and $15 for the Betty Crocker cook book''


note:
years ago before Ebay became a STORE and everybody a business owner you could get rolls of sandpaper for $5 .......now everything is expensive

Djg, Worked out better than I thought. It turned out to be 50 meters; so rolls are a little over 62 feet.I have to cut to right shape but it Works the same as what I had been useing. I will not be needing sandpaper for machine for a decade or so.

But you left it 6" wide, right? Just cut the ends to the proper angles.
