Great sanding drums
These are a really nice set for the money. Three sets of paper for each and they are solid and will last for many years. Easy to change the sanding paper too.

I needed this item to finish a small wood project I was working on. I didn't want to invest in a spindle sander. These work very well in my drill press.

I have a Performax spindle sander part # 90225 and I am looking for some drums for it I have the large drum but need the rest any help would be appreciated?
Stephen T on Apr 27, 2017
Can I purchase just the sleeves?
Joe B on Dec 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can I purchased extra sanding sleeves In different grits.
Can you use the drum sanders on a router?
Brian B on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: NO, THEY ARE NOT RATED FOR SPEEDS ROUTERS ACHIEVE
What do they attach to? Can they be used with regular drill?
Tammy R on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes they attached to any drill. They were great for small projects to clean up after cutting with a scroll saw.
Will these fit a craftsman oscillating sander?
Kyle J on Feb 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. Most oscillating sanders use 4-1/2" sleeves and the ones in this kit are 2".
Can it be used with a router?
Brian B on Apr 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would check the RPM of the router vs the design RPM for the long drum sander. My guess is no. I use mine in a drill press.
What RPM setting on my drill press is recommended to use these?
BEN H on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It's a trick answer, "It depends". Followed by an old chestnut, "not as fast as you think" If I am using something medium or fine grit means I'm done shaping and I'm working on my smooth finish.

Hard woods will not take a lot of surface speed before your putting heat into the stuff that's holding the grit. So slower is what I like.

Soft woods will cut easier and when doing so takes the heat away with the dust so you can afford a bit more speed, just do not run it so fast that the heat builds up and start leaving skid marks.
Does this come with a storage container?
Ken T on Nov 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No storage container, however, it comes delivered in a very sturdy box that can be used for storage.
can I use this in my oscillating rigid spindle sander model#e3022p0566?
boobie on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Probably not as the oscillating sander has a different internal attachment for securing the sanding drum as well as these being too short. These drums are designed to be used on a drill or drill press.
can I use them in a rigid oscillating spindle sander?
boobie on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I only use these in my drill press for some sanding of small pieces. Sorry I can't be of more help.
What are the lengths of the drums?
Gene S on Sep 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The drums are 2 inches long
What is the diameter of the shaft? Can these be used in a dremel tool?
Robert H on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Shaft diameter is 1/4 inch. Don’t know about using it with a crenels.
Does this kit come with the spindles to put the sleeves on?
John F on Feb 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Comes with both - three sets of sandpaper drums for each.
Does Item #: 44545 come with a case?
Dean R on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. The components are placed on a plastic cradle and packaged in a cardboard box. I saved the box and plastic cradle to store the set, but the package has considerable unused space.
