The sandpaper sleeve can be difficult to install
sometimes; and remove too.
It might be quicker to just buy a new rubber drum. In
case you missed it the rubber drums are also the same
as used by the Sears and Ryobi oscillating sanders.
(Home Depot carried the rubber drums at one time, might
still.) You might even want to have a drum for each
sleeve grit you use.
Some of the sandpaper sleeves may be a touch short in
the quality department. Check Klingspor,
(www.woodworkingshop.com), they carry 3 grits in 6
sleeve sizes according to their No. 93, 2007 catalog.
I don't know what access you have in the UK to the
above companies, but good luck searching.
Note: I do not keep the drum under tension when I'm
are not going to use it for awhile. I do this to avoid
distorting the rubber cylinder.
