Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a OSS450 but am unable to changeout the 1/2" spindle sandpaper. The other attachments have rubber sleeves that are inserted over the spindle and accepts the various sizes but not the 1/2" which seems to be on the spindle directly. Other than the nut and washer at the top of the spindle that secures the spindle attachments, I cannot find any other means of disconnecting the spindle or the spindle sandpaper sleeve from the unit. The 1/2" spindle sleeve just won't budge, so I can't use the other attachments. I bought the unit used but do not have the owner's manual. I don have a parts schmatic but it doesn't help.
Go to Harbour Freight Website. Their Oscillating Spindle Sander drums & sleeves are direct replacement parts for the Ryobi unit.

The solution is simple. The 1/2" sleeves fit directly onto the metal shaft and are secured with the flat washer and nut. You should be able to remove the nut and the washer and them if the sleve has is stuck to the shatf simply peel it off like a toiele roll tube. You can get replacement sleeeves in a multi pack from Home depot (Amazon have this same multipack for $1.00 a really great deal) or you can go to a woodworking site or a sandpaper site like Kingspor or sandgrit and order what you want.
I have the same sander and always run out of the 1/2" sleeves before the others so I order my 1/2" on line.

I have had this problem also. On the 1/2 inch spindle, the backing of the paper fuses onto the metal spindle shaft. If stuck, the only way to remove it is to cut it off with a utility knife. I spray the spindle down with WD-40 now before putting the 1/2 drum on the spindle so that I can remove it.
