    Just for the finer grits how about a plastic pipe that the spindle will fit into and tighten on to the apply valcro and use that to attach the paper to, easily removed after use. As long as not much pressure is used I would have thought that heat build-up should not be a problem. Or even metal pipe if that worried.

    I think that the main problem is that I am too lazy to make a whole bunch of cylinders of differing diameters all precise enough to go into the ventilation guide holes (24 all told) , so that I can work my way down from 80 grit to 800 grit which is my final finish before polishing. Its all easy on the outside, but the different spindle diameters are required for the inside of the bandsaw boxes and some of the diameters also create some of the curves, so consistency is needed. In my case the abranet rolls are much cheaper here than Axminster's prices and I have them easily up to 800 grit and they last a long time because they are self cleaning (the mesh that is).

    Hello Pierre

    Nothing left for me to add really. All has been said. I was going to suggest Velcro backed paper, but I am sure you already thought of that.

    As it happens, I am also a Radio Amateur. Still have my licence, but do not do much these days.

    Cheers
    Frederick

    I know it’s not cheap Pierre but have you looked at the Guinevere sanding system. It gives brilliant results
    When all else fails read the instructions
