I need help to replace my brushes on a makita 9553NB 4 inch angle grinder the old model i used to have had easy access.. coin sized slots on the handle that you simply uncsrew to reveal the brushes. my...


first unplug the tool, next on the backside you will notice a screw, remove it and slide the cover back to expose the backside of the motor. gently move the springs that hold the brushes tight to the side and remove the brushes and replace. Make sure to replace the springs and then slide the cover back into place and replace the screw and that should take care of your problem.

Hi, my BO5010 spins like a grinder if it is not held tightly to the workpiece, can it be fixed? Thanks, Ope.


Just under the sandpaper pad is a bearing that allows the pad to work as an orbital, that is it can turn freely, independently of the armature. If enough sawdust builds up around or inside this bearing the pad will spin like you describe and this is a fairly common problem with orbital sanders. You need Makita part number 211236-8 or a bearing #6002LL. It's fairly easy to replace; remove the screw in the center of the pad and remove it. Depending on which is tighter, the bearing will either be in the back of the pad or it will stay on the armature. Pry it off/out of the sander. Reassemble everything with the new bearing and you'll be back in business.

How do I replace the power cord for a makita palm sander? Specifically once all the visible screws are removed how does one separate the two body havles?


without knowing what the model number is you also have to remove the pad assembly and usually you will find some there if all removed you can GENTLY pry the cover halves apart. Go to Makitatools.com with you model number and you can download a breakdown for this tool.

Need earpad replacements for Optimus Pro-100 Wireless headphones


Just flip the headphone pad inside out on the Optimus Pro 100 wireless headphones.
Find the 3 screws on each headphone speaker, you have to push the existing cover back, but you'll find them. Remove the 3 screws. Be careful of the speaker wire that will be attached to the cover plate that has the ear pad on it. Also, look carefully at how the components are assembled inside the headphone, as you might disturb their setting. They are easy to return to their proper place if they move.
Gently remove the ear pad, turn it inside out and you will have a new covered ear pad. GENTLY, re-install ear pad onto speaker plate, be careful not to break the speaker wire that is attached. I found a little flat screwdriver helps to pull the edge of the pad over the plate. The ear pad is actually quite strong and can take some abuse, but don't pull the speaker wires loose.
After you have the cover back on, find the screw holes and put the 3 screws back in. Presto, a little cleanup on any loose pieces of covering from the original side and your done for another couple years or so.

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.


The screw is a LEFT HAND THREAD and also is LIKELY a Metric size!

Make sure you use a Metric Allen wrench.

Makita random orbit 5". The pad flew apart. Is it replaceable ?


Usually there are 3 screws holding the plate to the eccentric assembly. The pad is formed to a metal plate and is sold as an assembly. You can go to Makitausa.com with the model number and get a replacement pad.

Makita 6408 drill motor. can't see how to replace the chuck.


If you have the 6408 as listed the spindle is threaded and you are correct there is no retaining screw. What you would need to do is find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity 3/8" and insert the shorter end in the chuck and tighten. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and position the long end at about a 30 degree angle in the counter clockwise position and strike it with a hammer, this might take a couple hits. If this is not a 6408 let me know and I will look at the tool for you and see what you got.
