Question about Sanders & Sanding Blocks

1 Answer

Screw that holds the Sanding Disk mechanism to the Motor shaft comes loose.

I have tightened the screw several times but it still comes loose. How can this be corrected? The sander is only 5 months old.

    I found that the Fan Balance hub has broken and therefore it can't be tightened. I have ordered this part and will repair it myself. Thanks for all you help and support. That's all the Ridgid for me. My Cordless Drill switch went out and it's only a few months old. No parts available and no ETA when it will be in. Supposidly Ridgid is getting me another Drill to replace this one. Thanks again,

    Jim

    what brand and model number we talking about. It is possible to get a "nylok" screw that would resist backing out. Please advise and I will try and help.

Can I unscrew the base plate and fit another Velcro round pad


the velcro adapter pad unscrews from the spindle
just need a very thin spanner to hold the shaft while you unscrew the pad--normally only hand tight
most shafts are common size so any pad from another machine will most likely screw on
there may be even universal pads on e-bay if you can identify the thread size

Belt will not tighten small round spring come loose do not no where it goes


Usually there is a knob with a screw imbedded with a spring around it that screws in and adjusts the "tracking" of the belt so it doesn't run off the side of the rollers. If you lose that screw, then teh belt will come off quickly.

At this site, look at part # 68, 69, and 70

The Belt of my craftsman 3x21 sander slowly moves off track.


There is a leveling (screw/knob) on the side of the belt sander. Turn it up and the belt will drift in one direction. Turn it downward and the belt will drift in the opposite direction. play with this leveling screw/knob until you reach a good balance and the belt will stop drifting.

My Bosch 3107dvs random orbital sander stopped working. The screw that holds the sanding disk stripped the part that it screws into. I can't tell from the exploded parts diagram, which part I need to...


Drawing REF: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/bosch-3107dvs-0603310639-random-orbit-sander-parts-c-128_1044_1230.html

To remove the Dust Fan/Coupling Assy. I did the following: I disassembled the plastic housing, removed the Backing Pad Pos. 733 and Dampening Ring Pos. 51.

It seems the Star Washer Pos. 29 holds Bearing Pos. 30. onto the armature shaft and the Coupling Pos. 27 seems to be stuck in Bearing Pos.29. I used a 30mm long M7 hex-head bolt and 11mm ratchet turning clockwise (std RH thread) to pull the Coupling and Star Washer off. Luckily, there was enough thread left in the coupling to do this gear-pulling action with the longer bolt.

To remove the rest of the Fan Assembly I removed the 2 screws Pos. 43 holding the Brush Holder Assembly, Noted the position and removed the Spring Clip Pos. 32, then removed the Armature w/ Fan and Dust Fan/Coupling Assemblies. Firmly gripping the armature I was able to remove the Dust Fan from the armature by turning it clockwise (LH Thread).

Now that I have removed the parts and believe I will be able to reassemble them, I have ordered a new Dust Fan/Coupling Assembly.

I hope this helps someone else having a similar problem.

How to remove round sander for iron shaped one


You need to remove the allen head cap screw in the center of the base, then remove the washer, and pull the base straight down off the sander. If you can't get it to pull off, try gently rocking it a little as you exert pressure to pull it off.

With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a random orbit sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. B)
- Place the sanding base (3) onto the spindle (10).
- Place the washer (7) onto the spindle.
- Insert the Allen screw (8) into the screw hole in the spindle.
- Tighten the Allen screw using the Allen key (9) supplied.

Fitting sanding sheets (fig. C)
- Hold the tool with the sanding base (3) facing upwards.

Large detail sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a detail sander or an orbital sander.

For detail sanding, the pointed end should face forward as in fig. D. For sanding large areas,
the pointed end should face to the back as in fig. E.

Sanding Belt Slips Badly


Check and see if the pulleys on the sander are not glazed this somtimes will cause the belt to slip. Give them a good cleaning. If this does not help there is a good chance the spring on the belt tensioner is weak and need changed.

Hop this helps

Loose sanding belt


Hi, Consult your user manual for the instructions to install a new belt.  Follow these instructions selectively to tighten the belt tension. Here they are....  
CHANGING DRIVE BELT


  Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws
in the center of the pulley cover.
  Remove the cover.
  Raise sanding belt to the vertical sanding position.
  Next, loosen the hex head set screw. Raising the motor
pulley releases the belt tension.
  Remove the old drive belt.
  Fit the new drive belt on the drive pulley first and then on
the motor pulley.
  Test belt tension by squeezing the belt with your fingers.
  Adjust the belt tension with the hex head set screw until
there is about 1/4 in. (6 mm) of give.
  Tighten the belt tension nut securely.
Note: Excessive tightness on the drive belt may cause
increased noise and overload the motor. Excessive
looseness on the drive belt may cause the drive belt to
fail prematurely and make a severe chattering noise.
  Using a phillips head screwdriver, reinstall the pulley cover
and the two phillips head screws. Tighten securely.


Good Luck!  Middles
