    why will the paper not clog?
    Centrifugal force raises the hook & loop paper off the drum allowing the paper to flex as it contacts the wood. The paper goes from round to flat while abrading and back to round as soon as the paper leaves the work. Kind of flicks the dust off. Like a flap wheel.
    Some paint and pitch will clog, but you shouldn’t be sanding that crap any way.
    The drum and hooks are plastic. Unlike the metal drums found on conventional sanders, these would fail under pressure and heat.

      In post 12 you said it was meant for glue and resin so I was curious. Obviously I have never seen one of these but other experiences with drums have not been encouraging. On belts we use oscillation.
