The holes are to suction dust for a vacuum attachment or dust collection bag. The sander will have a very smooth pad almost shiny if it takes stick-on discs (PSA). If not it will be a velcro pad and in that case you need the velcro discs. This description sounds like you have a velcro pad. Sticky discs wont stick to a velcro pad.
Sounds to me like the brakes were not replaced on time and someone continued to drive the vehicle until they were metal on metal? The friction of the metal is very hot and can cause fire. As for the locking of the brakes, perhaps the pads were burned and caused the seize? If you did not continue to use the vehicle after the brakes were worn and began making noises to let you know that it was time for changing, then I would hire a mechanic to disassemble them and take pictures to document his findings before replacing everything.
The screws aren't maintaing thier "set" after tightening due to vibration which allows them to loosen and wallow out. Try some blue loctite on them next time. it should set the screws and still give you the ability to remove them when you need to. Marvin.
Sounds like it is time for a new backing pad. Usually the hooks get cooked and/or caked so that they don't have the "claws" to grab the fuzz on the sandpaper. If this is a well used backing pad, the hooks eventually just break off from heat and wear.
You basically have to keep dismantling the tool untill you can get the belt out, then re-assemble the tools again. Sorry to be so basic but thats about the only way to solve this problem. Sometimes you can cut the belt up and remove it, but most times you have to disassemble the tool some.
This means the sander has been droped and the pad support and/or the bearing orbit has been bent, maybe even the motor shaft. Never leave any power tool sitting on a bench, always set it on the floor, it will end up there at some time anyways. You can try replacing a part at a time and spend a lot of money and time, but is it worth it?
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
You can go to Hitachipowertools.com and under products scroll down to find your sander. They also have a dealer locator that will find someone in your area. I looked at both the breakdown and manual for this tool and am concerned because it says pressure sensitive, but the literature states hook and loop, so you would have to specify the hook and loop. Let me know if you have any problems finding someone and I will try and help
