Question about Bosch Tools & Hardware - Others
I need to replace the tool rest on this delta sander. The sanding plate comes off easily. It clips into the tool rest. To get the tool rest off you have to split the body of the Machine. That's OK. The tool rest is connected to the bevel gear shaft that carries the eccentic weights. The bottom end of this shaft passes through a bearing on the tool rest and seems to be an interference fit. Whatever I do I cannot free the shaft from the tool rest

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

Here's a link to the online manual.
As far as that diagram....didn't you label the wires?
Take a look here, it may help you. circuit wiring , especially the paragraph that begins: "Knowing that electrically common points have zero voltage drop between them is a valuable troubleshooting principle." Also read about resistors. That speed control knob is one.
Hope that helps...

This means the sander has been droped and the pad support and/or the bearing orbit has been bent, maybe even the motor shaft. Never leave any power tool sitting on a bench, always set it on the floor, it will end up there at some time anyways. You can try replacing a part at a time and spend a lot of money and time, but is it worth it?
