Sorry I have no idea.

Is this for sharpening rather than buying a few stones out of interest?

Don't drum sanders normally get each end of the abrasive trapped in a groove arrangement, with the paper just wound tightly and relying on friction to stay in place?

I’ve something similar, I used a belt of a belt sander with a screw in each end. Works enquire well

Exactly what Mike suggested, run a router along the length of your wooden drum to create a groove, relieve the sharp edges.
Then cut a wooden 'key' strip to a gnats under the width of your groove, wrap paper tightly over the drum and tap the key strip into place over the ends of the paper.

Try Record Power, they sell replacements for their 12" DS300, probably the smaller belt and disc models too.
