Question about Bosch Power Tools Sanders Orbital Sanders
I have a Bosch Pex400 AE orbital sander constantly flicking the sand paper off.
I am sanding the paint off a barge board on the house using a course sand paper (60 grit). i need to do this as the paint is flakey
I have tried using all the speed settings to see if it is speed related, without success.
Any suggestions, would be appreciated.
You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad. My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly. If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically. For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol. Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin. When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine. Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding. This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup. For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces clean! Good luck and happy sanding! Michael Mittelsdorf
