Sandpaper Source Query

Folks -
The post about the odd-sized disc and belt for the WT sander got me thinking... There was a lady that sold sandpaper back east, Jersey, I think, and her prices for good quality belts in custom sizes were more than fair. The trouble is, I'll be darned if I can remember the name of the site or the lady or her bizziness... I thought I had bookmarked it, but I've recently "upgraded" to Windoze XP, and you ALL know what a farcical experience THAT can be... I can't find the bookmark in my folders... so...
Do any of you have ANY idea? I did get the link from a post here, but darned if I can remember enough to not get a zillion hits with DAGS.. My lizard brain says something about "Barbara" but that's as far as it goes...
I need 4 x 38" belts for an old Atlas sander... Most of the custom belts run at least 4 bucks per, and while it might be more economical in the long run to purchase a newer, standard sized machine, this old Atlas Power King belonged to my dad...and...
Any glimmer of hope amongst you?
TIA,
John

here is who I like A & H abrasives 18008316066
they make all my belts and inflatable sanding drum sleeves and every oddball thing I need. prices are good on zirconia stuff. if you order before noon they ship it the same day. like I wanted PSA discs for my makita sharpener. they made them with a 1/2" hole for me. a sheet of zirconia 24"x36" for my lapping plate. sleeves for my sanding drums in any grit and any weight backing. they can do single items though you get a discount on orders of three or more. all their material is priced per square foot so shape does not matter. always use the blue zirconia on grits 120 and below. it last so much longer it is the best value. I get 6x89 belts for about 15.00 that's blue zirconia belts. that's 1/2 for local of the same brand.

Most 6"X48" belts are around $9 each at the BORGs. I bought 10 belts plus 10 9" adhesive backed sanding disks from her for around $35 delivered. A genuine American small family business.
