I had a belt sander belt come apart on me and I was able to hold it together with some string reinforced packing tape. This might work for you on the drums since it looks like you have an expanding type drum.

I know it's not DIY, but maybe as inspiration... Do you know those? The sanding paper is exchangable...

That's a good idea, GunGuy but I did a little experimenting with fibre tape a while back and it didn't hold together well. I think it was a combination of the tape being a bit old (so maybe the adhesive was weak) and not using enough of it (should have wrapped the whole drum with it, not just the join line). Will experiment more in the future, though.

Those are cool, Sepp. I actually did see those a few days ago, but alas, too late. I had already bought this cheapo Delta set of regular expanding-type drums.

Too bad, since that system looks a lot more DIY-friendly!

I've also been experimenting with my own drums (while waiting for the finish to dry on a trade... will be mailed soon, Sepp!). Just assembled from home centre hardware pieces. The shaft hole on the bit of rubber was a bit big so needed to thicken the bolt with some tape. Also, since it's a regular bolt it's not reverse threaded and came undone often when testing it out. I've since added a second nut to keep the first in places but haven't tried it out yet.

It's a bit longer, and a weird non-standard diametre so DIY sleeves are the only way to go. Might try drilling a hole and a slot and see if that pinned glueless system works.

some one say DIY
jeb in my experience whit this drums and dremmel ones i sujest you to use a ruber cilinder krzy gluing just the end and the begining of the sand papaer if its well ajusted you only need to aboy sharpen edges and the sand paper will stay
also when i was sanding of the paint of a dinner table and chairs only one layer of sand paper whasnt enuff so i go for a more soft paper and make several turns whit an eventual drop of krazy glue paper got dull then it self pills off and the next cape of sand paper rise ( tear must be droped by metacrilate burned) thats all for now

That was the idea, Jeb. Maybe you can use that kind of attachment system when you build your own drums. That pin in the middle seems to be removable. Maybe derAndy can say more about them. As far as I know, he's got a bunch of them...

A friend of mine made 2 drums using SOFT hockey pucks , threaded ods and a few metal discs for the ends.

Works well but its about 3.5 inch in dia.

I like the ones you made, very versatile

Thanks. Interesting idea. Here's a quick update:

Only have 125 paper clips so can only make 5 at a time.
