New Shop Tool: Flex Drum Sanders for sanding all tube shaped and round wood. This is the new and easier way to sand and smooth hard to handle round wood and tubes.
Online PR News – 29-October-2012 – Toms River, NJ – Toms River, NJ, -- Originals By Weber, Terry L. Weber, owner, announces immediate availability of their new highly efficient Flex Drum Sander Kit. Three always-soft long lasting sleeves (included) have a molded foam core covered with sandpaper in choice of three grits: 80,120 and 220. These sleeves slide onto a metal gripper shaft arbor assembly (included) that is fitted on your own electric motor with set screws for clamping to the shaft of your electric motor (motor is not included in the kit) Included is a split bushing to adapt the 5/8" bore in the arbor to a 1/2" motor shaft, if it is needed.

Largely the type of materials being sanded and the aggressiveness of sanding pressure applied to the sleeve determine the life of the sanding sleeves and pad assembly. Excess pressure, too much aggressiveness applied to the sanding sleeve pad assembly while sanding will generate excessive heat that shortens the life of the pad and sleeve assembly.
How to attach the Flex Drum Sander to your motor:
1. Insert the motor shaft into the bore in the end of the shaft arbor. If spit bushing is used, position the setscrews to clamp on the side of bushing and not in the slot. Tighten both setscrews securely against the shaft of your motor.
Use the palm of your hand to push the padded sanding sleeve firmly into place over the arbor. The pad will be a tight fit onto the shaft. Lightly coating the inside of the pad on the end with Vaseline might be necessary for easier installation. The four grippers that are built into the sides of the shaft prevent the pad from turning on the shaft during use.
