SOURCE: How to attach sand paper to the Kirby Turbo Sander attachment?

There is a plastic guard around the edges that comes off. Then, there are clamps that hold each end of the sandpaper. If you can't see the clips, then the guard is still on and needs to be removed. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Need to convert pad to hook & loop sys. Is product made to fit this sander pad ?

Thought about what my orbital sander is like, then went to a craft store and bought a large sheet/pad of velcro and cut it to fit the 6" rubber disc pad glued it to the pad and then bought hook and loop sanding discs. And you wondering why I didn't use my orbital sander?? Because I needed to get into tight spaces and the orbital sander is a bit too large for this, plus it's too heavy to use working overhead .

Thanks for your site and for asking if problem still exists. Appreciate it.

Good Luck

When I bought my sander it has what i would describe as a rubber pad onj the sander. Is this the sanding pad?


That sounds right. It is probably the type that uses adhesive backed paper. You stick the paper to the rubber pad.

Hi can I use my Dewalt polisher and change to sandpapper if so what parts will i need for instance glue new flexable pad sticky 220 papper can you please elaberate a little what in going to need thanx ...


I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll give it a go.

The DW421 is a sander already. If you want to change it to a polisher, you can buy polishing pads to go on it.
If you have a Dewalt polisher and want to convert to a sander, you can buy sanding disks to fit your polisher. They are installed on the spindle and I believe you can get a backing pad for it also.

Hope that helps

The base has lost its stickiness and no longer holds the velcro pad that you attach the sandpaper to.


I had same problem. Go to the hardware store and buy some Velcro strips. One side has adhesive, just put that side on the mouse. I had to put several strips on then cut around the shape of the mouse. Sandpaper for the mouse sticks to it great. Just be careful when pulling the used sandpaper back off that you don't tear off the Velcro. I threw that little pad away that was originally on the mouse.

I replaced the rubber sanding pad but the screw keeps backing out during operation.


Some pads come with a new screw that has loc-tite on them. If you used the old screw when you put the new pad on, the loc-tite was probably dry and flaking off. Put a small drop of loc-tite on the threads, snug it down and let it sit over night and it won't come out anymore.

Sandpaper will not stick to pad


Use a quality adhesive backed sanding disk, and clean the pad area with isopropanol/alcohol. This should allow the adhesive disk to stick.
I recommend 3M adhesive disks.

Sandpaper will not stick to rubber bed bosch


This is generaly due to previous adhesive buildup on the backing pad OR, the face of the backing pad is breaking down and cracking.There are two ways to handle this. You can try scrubing the crud off the pad (I wouldn't) or, you can get a new backing pad for your sander. At this point, you might want to go with a velcro type pad or hook and loop as they call it (cleaner and no goop). Check your local home depot for pads. If you cannot find one, I would suggest you call Klingspor abrasives Co. They have area reps all over the United States. I know, as I used to be one of them.They carry,.. and will send you pads via UPS. Just make sure you don't try to put a 6in pad on a 5in sander or vice-versa as the pads are weight-mated to the sanders. If you do, you will burn up the motor in your sander rather quickly.

Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off


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
