I have been using a Makita random orbit sander model BO5010 for years without problems until I replaced the pad with a Porter Cable 13910, sold as compatible. Now the sander takes off, ie: increases speed...


HI, i have a feeling the pad could be the issue there. The genuine Makita one is designed for the motor, so unless the the replacement is exactly the same thickness, diameter, and weight then you will have problems. Imagine putting a small wheel designed for a car on a truck, that kind of issue. Best thing to do is to try putting the old Makita pad back onto the machine and see if that make any difference. (that is if you still have it) At work we have had similar problems where we have used non-genuine circular saw blades onto our Makita saws, and its has burnt the motor out.

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.

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.

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.

Pad on 9045B sander


Remove the bottom faom pad, which should just be held on with phillips screws. Under this you will see the eccentric weight that has a screw in the middle. Not sure if it is left hand thread or not so be carefull. It is normally thread locked aswell so be firm but fair when unscrewing it. Once it's out you should be able to lever the weight of by applying equal pressure to each side of it. It will be centered on a woodruff key so be cartefull not to lose it. Also, in between this part of the base and the main body of the machine there is a rubber skirt that is clamped to both parts. Unscrew the band clamping the skirt to the base and I think you should be able to pry it apart then.
