I am getting a set of Carrol drum sanders for my pillar drill. They are all 75 mm tall with diameters of 25mm, 50mm and 75mm but for the life of me I cannot figure out what the best type of sandpaper is to go on them. There's alum oxide, silicone carbide, emery, etc.
I cannot see any point in using something like abranet since the dust cannot be sucked through them in this situation.
What do you all use ?

:lol: Abranet. :lol:
I find it lasts a lot longer than anything else I've used.
One tip. Insert the allen key FULLY into the tightening mech, or it will round it off. DAMHIKT.

Thanks for that Adam.

I have never known ( but always wondered ) what DAMHIKT. means
