This is the flap wheel I made and it works just wonderful. as I hope you can see I cut the pieces of sanding pad from the pads in one photo and insert them around the wooden peg then rotate the cover to lock them in. I don't know th e exact RPM I run this wheel at but not too fast as it would shorten the life span.IMG_0532.JPG IMG_0531.JPG  IMG_0534.JPG

Hey Marlowe,
Where did you find sanding pads that thickness? The ones I have are like 1 inch thick. I would love to find some that are size that you have????

Thanks for another neat tip.

RE; the sanding pads, I live near Calgary Alberta Ca. and I can get these sanding pads in only one store and that one specializes in Lacquers and stains and the pads are imported from Italy I think. The pads come in two grits med. and fine. They are great because they are softer than the thick pads. I cut them with a utility knife and of course the blade is no good after that but with breakaway blades they're cheap.

Klingspor's Woodworking has them. Probably most off the sand paper specialty places will have them too.
