Festool RO 125 leaves scuff marks when sanding


depends how important it is to vacuum the dust, most generic brand sandpaper discs will have different hole placements for the sander and the vacuum cant suck the dust up. if you are getting swirl marks from the edge of the sander, is the disc too small? a generic brand that is slightly larger may work but try and keep the sander flat or the excess disk can cause a little trouble with the finish.

the velcro piece should have a removeable or i should say a peel off paper like a sticker and then stick the velcro to the base off sander if it was not on when you got it. it was not put on at the factory cause they give you the option of using stick on sheat of sandpaper or hook & loop (velcro).

The sanding disc on my orbital sander keep flying off.


If you're using a hook and loop sanding pad (velcro), most likely the hooks have worn out and the pad needs to be replaced. They are available from this website, if you can't find them locally.

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

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.

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.

Hitachi SV13YB 5'' Single Speed Random Orbit Sander, Hook and Loop, 8 - Hole - pad that holds the sanding pads (hook and loop) is worn out, where can I buy a replacement?


You can go to Hitachipowertools.com and under products scroll down to find your sander. They also have a dealer locator that will find someone in your area. I looked at both the breakdown and manual for this tool and am concerned because it says pressure sensitive, but the literature states hook and loop, so you would have to specify the hook and loop. Let me know if you have any problems finding someone and I will try and help
