Ryobi Oscillating Spindle Sander OSS450 Manual and Sandpaper Changeout

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.

    hi

    i have the 450 and smallest belt broke that moves shaft up and down. Is that a common problem or does something else go bad that causes belt to break. If that is the case (broken belt) then where can I get them the cheapest price?

    Thanks,

    tom from Michigan

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.

Good luck.

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.

MODEL 11322506 MAINT. TO CHANGE DRUMS


To change drums you have to remember it is reverse thread. If the nut will not because the drum keeps turning you need to either squeeze the drum or hold the shaft near the bottom where the fins are. At least this is my experience with the Porter Cable oscillating spindle sander.

My ryobi oss450 has stoped oscillating. Is there anything I can do to repair it? It operates just fine except for the oscillating.


You can try taking it apart and cleaning the mechanism that makes it oscillate, but i have found most times when those stop they are just wore out and need replaced. Those sanders are pretty much disposable.

I have a stuck sanding spindle in the arbor of my JOVS-10 spindle sander. I have tries penetrating oil to no avail. Any ideas without tearing down the whole machine?


One last idea is just trying to tighten it more to possibly breach the seizure or you could put some torch heat to it to try and expand the metal. I'd be careful torching as all the super-fine sawdust and oil. Good luck

On the Bench Oscillating Spindle Sander how do you lock the spindle so that you can remove the bolt at the top to change the sanding sleeve? When I try to loosen the bolt the spindle turns and I don't have...


Remove the spindle from the machine itself before you change the sanding sleeve. There should be a flat section on the bottom of each spindle that you can hook a wrench on to hold it while you undo the top bolt.
