Looking for balloon sander

I used to work for an oak furniture shop and we had balloon sanders that were homemade. They had a cloth balloon with a valve stem that you slid a sandpaper sleeve over and inflated. So far, everywhere I've checked I've been unable to find the pieces I need to build one. The onlything I find are old used ones with no balloons or paper(only the base, motor, and shaft). If anyone knows where I could find the balloons and sanding sleeves, It would help me out alot....Thank you
