Re: how do i refill a finishing sander

Without any more detail about your particular finishing sander, I do not know whether this will help, AND I am no expert, but here goes ...

I inherited a Black and Decker 1/3 sheet sander, with no manual, from my late brother. It is not their newest model -- from the yellow plastic and the general looks and wear, I would say it is from the 1980s or 90s. The sand paper is held by a sort of spring clamp at both the front and back. There is a slot -- perhaps half an inch wide and a quarter inch tall -- in both of these spring clamps. I inserted a wide-bladed screwdriver into the slot, and pryed away from the sanding pad to open the clamp and insert the new 1/3 sheet.

Hope this helps!

Belt slips on Stanley belt sander model H-31A

On most belt sanders the back wheel or the idle wheel has an adjustment on it, loosen the bolt that goes through and slide back. Some have an adjustment screw that will pull or push the idle wheel. That should be on the inside of the wheel.

How do i change the assesories that come with dremil how do i use the hand held dremil??

If you have the standard dremel tool ther is a small bar sticking out at the collet end of tool. This is a locking rod to hold motor shaft in place so you can loosen coollet nut. Put pressure on thebar and slowly rotate the shaft until the bar drops in place. There should be a small open end wrench that comes with your tool to loosen nut. If not use asmall wrench to loosen nut.Turn it counter clock wise to loosen. It is not needed to take the nut all the way off. You may have to move tool slighyly to get it to come out.
The tool that you use is determined by what job you are trying to do.Most come with abrasive cut off wheels small grinders,sanders,and polishers.To secure new tool in collet just insert tool shaft in collet and tighten down. When it gets snug then Depress locking bar to finish tightening. Hope this helps you some. Thank you.

I have the same sander, and cannot get parts anymore, so I carefully cut out a piece of sheet metal, and drilled holes, and put it on. so it might not say stanley, but who cares? I don't. and if it doesn't last as long, who cares. its more help than I got from stanley, who was bought out in 1973 from what I read.
