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.
