Replacing paper on a Skil sander 490

There has to be an efficient way to do this. We do not have a manual so we are just using a screw drive and screwing the paper in each side separately. Doing it this way almost requires 3 hands.

SOURCE: how to adjust belt on skil belt sander

There should be a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander behind the front roller. Run the saw and adjust this knob to center the belt. You will probably have to do this every time you change belts. Hope this helps you...

My skil octo sander won't rotate with the bottom plate on. With the plate off it rotates just fine, is there a way to fix it? I've tried both tightening and losening the screws.


This happenenrd to my sander two days ago.
I searched online for answers and useful information to solve it but couldn't find any thing.
But, I have good news.
I fiddled with the sander till I just figured out what the issue is.
I've discovered that the ball bearing appears to be busted.
It's bearing #608-2RS
im gonna take it to a shop to have it pulled and I'll replace it and see if it flys.
will update later.

How to replace the sand paper on skil sander hi speed 439


the skil 439 is a palm orbital finish sander. To replace the paper, pop the springs off the side where they take a 90 degree turn towards the work surface. To replace paper, rip a piece of standard sand paper into quarters, reverse removal and done. It's a pretty nice older sander and yes I have one.

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:)
