My skil octo sander won't rotate with the bottom plate on. With the plate off it rotates just fine, is there a way to fix it? I've tried both tightening and losening the screws.

This happenenrd to my sander two days ago.
I searched online for answers and useful information to solve it but couldn't find any thing.
But, I have good news.
I fiddled with the sander till I just figured out what the issue is.
I've discovered that the ball bearing appears to be busted.
It's bearing #608-2RS
im gonna take it to a shop to have it pulled and I'll replace it and see if it flys.
will update later.

I have a pressure control skil octo Sander .i think i pressed down to hard now the pressure light stays on and it won't sand but Motor runs good

The transmission between the motor and the sanding belt has been damaged by the excessive pressure you applied. Check it carefully to see if something got bent and operation can be restored. If it is gear driven and you broke off some of the gears then .....................................

Skill 7292 hand sander won't turn on

a lot of times sawdust gets into the switch contacts and won't allow the tool to operate. I would try turning the switch on/off several times and see if it temporarily helps. Also check the cord. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I just aquired a used Skil Model 409 orbital sander and am having trouble inserting the paper. Is there a technique peculiar to this machine that?

Sorry, I was missing that part. You got it right, though. three hands is the answer. Orrr, you could go get some nice sticky back papers and cheat. They come in a variety of sizes or can be cut from full sheets. what you have there is a good sander to use while you figure out what kind of sander you want:)

Changing the sanding pads

You use a 1/2 inch socket wrench to remove the nut at the top of the spindle shaft, slide the old sanding sleeve off and the new one on.  Replace the nut.  You may also have to insert a different size table insert if you are changing the sleeve size.
