Yes it should screw on and the sanding pads should either be sticky or velcro

When I bought my sander it has what i would describe as a rubber pad onj the sander. Is this the sanding pad?


That sounds right. It is probably the type that uses adhesive backed paper. You stick the paper to the rubber pad.

How do I replace the fan assembly cannot hold armature assembly to get inner bearing out without damaging armature assembly


If you are replacing the fan assembly because the internal thread that holds the rubber/velcro pad has stripped, there might be an alternative.

I had the same problem with my PEX 12AE, which I believe is a similar sander. I found that the hole is threaded a good bit deeper than the screw, so I got a longer screw and so far it's holding ok. If/when that fails, I might try repairing the thread with an insert.

Curious to know how you managed with your sander.

I replaced the rubber sanding pad but the screw keeps backing out during operation.


Some pads come with a new screw that has loc-tite on them. If you used the old screw when you put the new pad on, the loc-tite was probably dry and flaking off. Put a small drop of loc-tite on the threads, snug it down and let it sit over night and it won't come out anymore.

I can't get the sandpaper to stay on the pad.


It sounds like you need to replace the backing pad on the sander. Over time the velcro (hook & Loop) on the backing pad will loose its stick. A Bosch service cneter can supply you with a new one, just let them know which model you have. If its an adhesive back sanding pad the same thing applys just get a new one. Hope this helps

Hand sander stops spinning once placed on item to be sanded


This sander has a brake pad that is supposed to stop the rotation when the sander is not actually in use. It sounds like it's malfunctioning.
The only other thing I can think could be a cause of what you describe is an improperly assembled sanding base. Have you changed out the base, and if so, were you sure to properly align the replaced base on the machine before you tightened the allen screw?
If you're not comfortable disassembling a tool that is still under warranty ( I think it's two years for that one), I would recommend finding a Dewalt service center and taking it in for a factory service call.

Changing the rubber pad on the Bosch PEX 12 AE


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.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
