I ordered 2 of these. Getting the paper on was easy enough. Just keep it rolled as you align it and then let it unroll as you apply pressure to the surface. I used a mixing stick to press the paper onto each area of the shapes, letting the paper out just enough to allow the stick to press it down.
For the 2nd one, I cut a strip of higher grade paper and used 3M spray adhesive and attached the paper the same way. With the adhesive on both surfaces, it was a little harder, but since the paper was cut .5" wider than the original, I was able to wrap the paper around the the outer-edge, which made it easy to lay down in the rest of the surfaces as it unrolled. Be sure to use a mixing stick, as it'll give you the ability to get the paper into the curved surfaces evenly.Nice tool - good quality. Minus one crown for not having clips for the sand paper (needs adhesive sandpaper)Good sander with various generic profiles, sticking the sand paper could get tricky
