    I am trying to remove he bottom plate, with the 4 screws out nad the center shaft bolt off. Teh eccentric is a under the rubber pad, which is removed, and the eccentric will not come off. It is a cast aluminum. Even with heat the eccentric will not come off. I must remove the bottom plate so I can replace one of the 2 sandpaper clamps that broke.

Are you removing the plate from the top (4screws) or trying from the bottom. It appears that the eccentric is a loose press fit. I am looking at a breakdown but it is not really all that clear. I would suggest going to and under downloads type in your model number which is 600358-42, the 6 is already in place so what I did is add a 1 to the end of it and found the tool. Let me know but did you also check the clamps for the reason. Usually the platen is sold as an assembly.

    Have you tried a screwdriver on either end alternately applying down force on the screwdrivers to pry the eccentric off. Also if you have applied heat you might want to take a look at the bearings. Did you look at the breakdown I mentioned it shows exactly what needs to be done. Let me know

Can anyone give me the steps to replace in & out rollers on a Ridgid 13" planer? Model # TP13002

On a few Ridgid planers, you can remove the retainer plates that hold the roller's bearing blocks in place without removing the head from the base, on others you have to seperate the head from the base to get at them. The infeed and outfeed rollers are not adjustable in that you don't have to line them up precisely when installing new rollers, they only go in one way. They do install into bearing blocks that 'float' on springs to keep the rollers tight on the wood being planed and there is a difference between the springs on the left and right side. Make sure you install the springs on the same side they came out of. When you replace the rollers you should replace the bearing blocks because they have to work together properly. Check the fit of the old bearing blocks on the new rollers, they should rotate smoothly with no side play. Make the call yourself whether to replace them or not.

Velcro pad that the sandpaper is fixed to has come off the plate. What's the best glue to use to re-stick the pad with?

You may try a two part epoxy, or gorilla glue. Let dry for a day or two. Sometimes 3m spray adhesive also works. Let tack before sticking together though.

Sheets keep coming off during sanding

The sandpaper will come off for one of these reasons: 1. The spring clips are to loose to hold the sandpaper. 2. You are using sandpaper that the paper's either too thick for the clips to hold it or too thin to withstand the work you are putting it through. 3. (Most likely) You are pushing down on the sander too hard while sanding. These types of sanders work by their own weight with only a little help from you.

I am recently widowed and don't know how to get the sand paper out of and onto the sander

At both ends of the bottom pad, there are metal fittings that have a rectangular hole in the middle of them. Take a regular head screwdriver and put the tip in the hole and carefully but firmly lift up and hold while at the same time pushing the narrow edge of the 1/3 sheet sandpaper up under the metal piece which kind of looks like a C on its edge. Then let down the metal piece with the screwdriver and that edge of the sand paper should be held in place. Do the same thing for the other end of the sandpaper, making sure to pull the sandpaper sheet tight against the rubber pad.

No sanding action and motor just buzzes

It will probably be the shaft from the motor to the orbital cam which is on the flat plate that you connect the sandpaper to , either the shaft or the bottom cam is broken [probably the shaft has snapped ] you can do a cheap repair with a good glue to reconnect the shaft [but you wont be able to push too hard again] or if you can get the parts just replace the shaft into the motor . they are really simple things to work on

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.
