Tiny washer missing from orbital sander

My 1/2 sheet orbital sander is missing a tiny washer on one of the metal rods that hold the paper holder in place. The pin falls out as soon as I start up the sander. The hardware store does not have such tiny washers. Where can I get one? Thanks for any help,
Inge

    the sander was made in Bridgeport, Conn. I had it since around 1970.
    Time to buy a new one?


    thanks,

I dont have the model number but you can go to Milwaukeetools.com and type in your model and you can look at a parts breakdown for this unit, or send it to me and I will look for a number and if you give me your location I will try and find someone close that you can get it from. Let me know if I can help more.

    the header said it was a Milwaukee, but I can't find anything on the GE as the brand, where was the tool made and do you have any other information that I can use. Let me know I haven't given up yet.

How do I secure a piece of sandpaper on the dewalt orbit palm sander?


I think your model holds the paper with glue that is on the sand paper.Just take apart the back cover of the sand paper to expose the glue.

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.

I just aquired a used Skil Model 409 orbital sander and am having trouble inserting the paper. Is there a technique peculiar to this machine that?


Sorry, I was missing that part. You got it right, though. three hands is the answer. Orrr, you could go get some nice sticky back papers and cheat. They come in a variety of sizes or can be cut from full sheets. what you have there is a good sander to use while you figure out what kind of sander you want:)

Replacing the sand paper


Ok on the front and rear of the sander you will see metal wire holders. These extend each side of the sander and form a loop to which you can release them from their holder. Release each side ring and then that will lift the wire holders up at the front and back of the sander. This releases the sandpaper sheet. Now cut or add a new sheet that is long enough to fit over the sander base and fold up under the wire holders. Then clip the rings from the wire holder back in place while holding the sandpaper under the wire holder to hold the sandpaper in... same process for each holder (one front and back). That's it!

Putting Sanding paper on makita sander


A makita power planer is just what it says, a planer. It has blades that spin at high speed and remove a thin layer of wood with each pass. The orbital sanding sheets go on another tool called an orbital sander. Write back if you find the sander and can not figure out how the sheets go on it.

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.

Black and decker model 7404 1/3 sheet sander - not orbiting


wear inhibitor part number 86355 has broken on you. When this part brakes it brakes into tiny pieces which then leave the case so it hard to tell whats wrong. They don't make this part any more as the 7404 was discontinued in October 1975. I hoped this helped. I have the same problem.
