Try a spray on tack adhesive on plain sand paper. You probably can find it at a hobby or auto parts store

How do you get the sandpaper on?


With a palm sander they are either self adhesive or you glue them on. Some have a clamp if the sandpaper is rectangular. It depends on what your sander is.

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.

DW411 Can I put a velcro pad on this sander so I don't have to fumble around trying to get sand paper on it


Dewalt is not going to make an accessory for you to do so, since that sander was designed to use 1/4 sheet sandpaper, and therefore takes standard paper clamped in place. You could make your own base for the sander out of thin plywood or some other suitable material, covered perhaps with a laminate or rubber surface, that would accept PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) sandpaper, which you can buy in rolls appropriately sized for your sander. Or you can try some kind of after-market conversion kit such as this one (See also here, etc.)
If you really want a hook and loop base on your sander, I recommend you bite the bullet and simply purchase a random orbital sander with a H&L pad. Then you'll of course have to buy the perforated paper discs to go with it....
But you'll easily be able to change grits, and the performance and quality of your sanding will improve.
You might check the reviews in various woodworking magazines before you make a purchase, just so you know what you're likely to get for your money. There's a vast array of machines made, and the quality varies accordingly, and depends to some extent on your budget and intended use.
Good luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Sand paper pad no longer holds the sanding disk


If pad is hook and loop style use compressed air or clean nylon brush to clean debris from hooks.If using adhesive backed dics try wiping a little alcohol across the pad surface to clean it.

Sand paper keeps slipping help


I don't know what type of sander you are speaking about it just says generic ALL PORTER CABLE SANDERS. You got to be a little more specific. If it is a disk sander use 3M disk adhesive. It is a contact cement. spread some on the rubber backing disk with your hand, let dry then apply the sanding disk. After the disk is clogged, peel it off and apply another disk. when the adhesive won't hold anymore disks, re-apply the adhesive.

Need to attach sandpaper and holder


take your sander to any hardware store and ask the clerk to show you the kinds of sandpaper and holders available. there are several adhesive backed peel and stick varieties and others that are loop and hook, like velcro. happy sanding.

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

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...
