Hi,
Don't know if you had any joy finding the heads, I'm in the UK and managed to get all the spares I need for my mouse.
You can get them from here: http://www.mtmc.co.uk/Black--And--Decker-KA161K-Type-1-Sander-Spare-Parts/p-20239/
I believe the part your looking for is par 105 on the diagram, they're like less than £1 each (I just ordered 3).
Hope this helps.
Kev

Depends which country you are in - most hardware stores stock a generic mouse pad and tip replacement set - not B&D branded though - in the same section as there power sanders

Can't figure out how to load the sand paper on to the mouse sander


Just stick the sand paper sheet to the base of the mouse sander... it's velcro it will hold... match the forme of the paper with the forme of the sander's base... that's all...

Cheers!

How do i change base?


After struggling with this same problem for a while, I think I figured it out. I was trying to replace the diamond shape plate. I would try to unscrew the spindle but it kept turning without any resistance.


Trick seems to be to press down hard and firm on the plate it self while unscrewing the spindle. I was trying to apply upward force and pull off the plate while rotating the screw counter-clockwise. Just push down and not pull up and it should be fine.

Could you please tell me what sandpaper goes on the Mouse sander/polisher model # MS500


ok this easy go to the hardware store and ask for the sandpaper to fit your sander, black & decker make sandpaper specifically for that sander. now depending what job you want to do will determin what grade you want sand paper works like this the higher the number on the paper the finer it is so for example 80 is very coarse you would use that for eg stripping thick paint on a door but 2000 is very fine and is used for eg sanding varnish between coats. ok hope that helps let me know how you go.

Hi, yes these are replasable, you can go to the black and decker website to purchase or find out where your nearest dealer is. These can be quite expensive so shop around, I have parts on ebay.

I cannot remove the plate to pute the other plate on


Here's a copy of the manual instructions...
Detail Sanding
Your tool is equipped with a teardrop base which allows you to use it on large flat surfaces
and tight spots or corners.
The pad tips may wear unevenly, depending on use. The pads are designed to allow you to
interchange and /or rotate the diamond tip.
Fitting Sanding Sheets ( Fig. 2)
• Detach the two diamond-shaped tips from the sanding sheet.

If this doesn't provide enough information, take a look at the pictures in the manual at the following link: http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/589307-02,MS550GBMS550GH.pdf

If you still have difficulty getting the base off, write back and let me know specifically what the trouble is and I'll try to help you with it.
• Hold the tool with the sanding base facing upwards.
• Place the sanding sheet onto the sanding base.
The diamond-shaped tip can be reversed and replaced when worn.
• When the front part of the tip is worn, detach it from the sheet, reverse it and press it onto
the sanding base again.
• When the whole tip is worn, remove it from the sanding base and fit a new tip.
Tip of the Sanding Base ( Fig. 3)
When the sanding base tip is worn, it can be reversed or replaced.
• Remove the screw.
• Reverse or replace the worn part.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Finger Attachment ( Fig. 4)
The finger attachment is used for fine detail sanding.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the sanding base.
• Fit the finger attachment onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Contour Holder Attachment (Fig. 5)
• The contour sanding pieces are for sanding curved surfaces and grooves.
• Remove the screw.
• Remove the diamond-shaped tip holder from the
sanding base.
• Fit the contour holder onto the sanding base.
• Fit and tighten the screw.
Fitting and Removing a Contour Piece (Fig. 6 & 7)
• Choose the contour sanding piece profile most suitable for your application.
• Place one end of the contour sanding piece into the recess at
the front end of the profile holder.
• Push the other end of the contour sanding piece until it clicks
into place.
To remove the contour sanding piece, push it forward then pull the rear end out of
the profile holder (fig. 7).
Fitting a Sanding Sheet Onto a Contour Sanding Piece (Fig. 8)
• Align the sanding sheet with the contour sanding piece.
• Press the sanding sheet onto the contour sanding piece, making
sure that the sanding sheet follows the shape of the profile.
