Pad on 9045B sander

The lever used to release the clamp that holds the sandpaper has broken. It seems to be part of the pad assembly. How do I remove the pad to replace it? Is this older model worth buying a new pad?
Thanks, Bill Lees

    The lever that moves the clamp holding the sandpaper in place has broken. It appears to be part of the pad. How do I replace the pad. Is this older sander worth the expense and trouble to repair? Thank you.

Remove the bottom faom pad, which should just be held on with phillips screws. Under this you will see the eccentric weight that has a screw in the middle. Not sure if it is left hand thread or not so be carefull. It is normally thread locked aswell so be firm but fair when unscrewing it. Once it's out you should be able to lever the weight of by applying equal pressure to each side of it. It will be centered on a woodruff key so be cartefull not to lose it. Also, in between this part of the base and the main body of the machine there is a rubber skirt that is clamped to both parts. Unscrew the band clamping the skirt to the base and I think you should be able to pry it apart then.

How do I change the paper?


I'm not familiar with that particular model, but they are virtually all replaced the same way. There are a few screws through the pad into the base. Simply remove them and screw the new pad on. You'll see that it's quite simple once you get the new pad in your hands.
Just be careful not to strip the head of the screw: use the right size screwdriver tip.Refer more on custom essay writing service

The sandpaper works its way off the machine almost immediately after turning machine on. We already checked to see if the paper was the right size. We also made sure the tightening lever was secure.


If this is a belt sander then they have a tracking adjustment knob. You will need to adjust it so that the belt stays on and doesn't want to walk off.

Good day. How do I insert sandpaper into the Makita 9035N sander? Thank you.


looked at breakdown for the 9035 and this shows as a half sheet sander with 2 clips, they have a lever that has to be pulled away from the sander to allow you to lift up on the clamp and insert the paper under the clamp jaws when finished inserting the paper just push the levers back to their original position. You can download an owners manual by going to makitausa.com and typing in your model number. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I want to replace a broken drive belt for the Br300 Type 1 but am having problems. Please advise as to proceedure for replacing this belt. Thanks in advance for your help.


Look between the rollers that the sandpaper belt travel on. You will find a lever which can be released. Once you release it, you can pull the old belt off and slip the new belt on. Place the release lever back the way it was and you are done.

This maybe a stupid question, but how do you get the sandpaper on and off of the sander. I borrowed it and I don't have a clue how to get it to stay on.


It depends on what kind of sander it is. If its a belt sander then on the side there is a lever that comes outward. it releases the tension then slip the old one off and new on and push lever back in place. If its a palm sander then on each side of the pad there will be 2 silver rods there. you push the rod in and then pull up and it releases a bar that wil go up and down for you to put the new paper on with.

I am recently widowed and don't know how to get the sand paper out of and onto the sander


At both ends of the bottom pad, there are metal fittings that have a rectangular hole in the middle of them. Take a regular head screwdriver and put the tip in the hole and carefully but firmly lift up and hold while at the same time pushing the narrow edge of the 1/3 sheet sandpaper up under the metal piece which kind of looks like a C on its edge. Then let down the metal piece with the screwdriver and that edge of the sand paper should be held in place. Do the same thing for the other end of the sandpaper, making sure to pull the sandpaper sheet tight against the rubber pad.

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172


I checked Searspartsdirect.com for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

Replacing the sand paper


Ok on the front and rear of the sander you will see metal wire holders. These extend each side of the sander and form a loop to which you can release them from their holder. Release each side ring and then that will lift the wire holders up at the front and back of the sander. This releases the sandpaper sheet. Now cut or add a new sheet that is long enough to fit over the sander base and fold up under the wire holders. Then clip the rings from the wire holder back in place while holding the sandpaper under the wire holder to hold the sandpaper in... same process for each holder (one front and back). That's it!

How to attach sand paper to the Kirby Turbo Sander attachment?


There is a plastic guard around the edges that comes off. Then, there are clamps that hold each end of the sandpaper. If you can't see the clips, then the guard is still on and needs to be removed. Hope this helps...
