    Re: Jet 12" Disc sander problem

    These adhesive discs are expensive, so I make my own like Bruce. I've been using 3M spray adhesive - medium bond. Works great, but I'm going to try Sprayway.

    Re: Jet 12" Disc sander problem

    OK Update! I followed Bruce's suggestion, went to Klingspor bought the remnants he mentioned, got some Sprayway there as well. Cut a 12" circle using the old disc as a pattern, cleaned the metal disc with MS. Then sprayed the Sprayway directly on the metal (so I wouldn't get the paper stuck to my clumsy fingers), let it dry 5 min then placed the new paper in place without difficulty. I burnished the surface with some hardwood while the disc was spinning and Bob's your uncle. So far after 4 days and some moderate use the paper is staying in place with no buckling. Hopefully it stays put longterm and will be easy enough to remove later.
    Thanks all for the suggestions. I am pleased with how this technique works and it is MUCH Cheaper than the commercially available discs.
