Question about Black & Decker QS800 2.0 Amp 1/4 Sheet Finishing Sander with Convexgrip
Want to replace the platen on my black and decker QS-900 palm sander. I have the replacement, removed the bottom screws, and cannot remove the platen. What am I missing?
Just acquired one of these palm sanders and it was in need of having the platen replaced. I ran into the same issue. It is just attached very snug to the hollow shaft from the motor. Try gently prying with your fingertips around all edges going in a circular pattern. You will gradually start to loosen the platen and it'll pop off. Worked for me...

I dont think that you are missing anything, but you might want to go to Dewaltservicenet.com and download a breakdown for this tool. it might be that the platen is stuck and needs some "gentle" persuassion to remove.
