    You probably need to check at owwm.org. State made a couple of different types of spindles and they are fairly hard to find. Used sanders tend to be priced depending on how complete the spindles are since they run 50-100 each on the used market. The larger ones have the same size spindle with varying diameter rubber drums.

    Dave do you know of a replacement source for just the rubber drum part of the spindle assembly ? I will not know for a week or so what exactly I have ended up because I bought this sight unseen. The sander is six hours away,a friend is picking it up for me. In the pictures that I have seen there were 6-7 spindles on the sander,however the owner said only a four inch and 3/4'' are useable. not sure if this means new rubber sleeve and abrasive sleeve or just abrasive. While I am at this, what is a good source for abrasive sleeves ?

    It is a State isnít it? That means itís a good machine. You really should be asking on OWWM.

    Iíd order Sleeves and non-psa backed paper from supergrit, but I had a bad experience recently with their PSA backed paper for my 20 inch state disc sander. It wouldnít stick unless I sprayed on an aerosol glue like 3M 77. I thought the point of PSA backed paper was the glue was already there exclamation
