Question about Milwaukee Tool Milwaukee 1/4 Sheet Orbital Palm Sander - 6016 - 6

Open Question

Need to get the case off Milwaukee 1/4 sheet sander

From what I can tell there are only 4 screws to remove in order to get the outer casing off, however once I remove the screws I can only get the case apart about 1/2 inch. Am I missing another screw or something?

SOURCE: Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes

exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.

The vibrating plate stopped vibrating but the motor seems to be working ok. Either the plate is jammed or something broke. What do you think? This sander is probably 30 years old, very heavy duty.


check the bearing in the platen, it is probably seized up. you can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for this tool. Let me know and I will try and help further.

1/4 palm Sander is not "collecting" dust even with a new sanding bag, what could be the problem?


Are you using the punch plate to put holes in the sand paper after you put on a new sheet?
If you are it could have an obstruction in the fan guide or the fan has broken fins. Both the punch plate and fan can be purchased by clicking on the below link.

Milwaukee Polisher model 5460. Gear Case Replacement


you need to remove the pad first and then you will find 2 torx screws about a 25, remove them and the plate next if you have a dead blow hammer tap on the side of the gearcase where the screws were and the spindle assembly and bearings will jump out of the housing, then remove the 4 screws holding the gearcase to the motor housing and it will come apart. To reinsert the spindle assembly gently tap back into place with the hammer to reset the gears. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I need to remove the fan on my black and decker pad sander but theres no way to clamp the armature to unscrew the fan


Why would you want to remove the fan? There is a good chance that the fan is molded to the shaft and can not come off.

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.

Random orbit sanding base
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.
- To remove the sanding base, remove the Allen screw (8) and washer (7).
Fitting sanding sheets (fig. C)
- Hold the tool with the sanding base (3) facing upwards.
- Place the sanding sheet (11) onto the sanding base (3). The holes in the sheet do not need
to line up with the holes in the base.
Large detail sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a detail sander or an orbital sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. D & E)
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.
- Place the sanding base (12) onto the spindle (10). Make sure that the legs of the base
locate into the tool.
- 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.
