Question about Milwaukee Tool Milwaukee 6010 - 6 1/2 Sheet Orbital Sander

1 Answer

I'm sanding my cedar deck prior to re-staining it. I've rented a Milwaukee 6010-6 5 Amp 1/2 Sheet Orbital Sander to do the edges up along the house: I'll be using a bigger sander for the bulk of the job once this is done. My problem is, the sandpaper sheets keep ripping and need to be replaced. I must be doing something wrong. Am I putting too much weight on the sander? I assumed this was the right technique because there's lots of dead wood on the surface and I need to sand down quite deep, but perhaps I shouldn't be putting so much weight on the sander? Or is there some other likely problem? (It's not snagging on nails: I counter-sank them all quite far to avoid that.) Thanks! My name is Ron.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: replace velcro pad on rupes random orbital sander

I have replaced velcro on various sanders , you just take the original velcro off and make sure that the base is very very clean, use turps and metho to clean it with then buy some velcro from a good hardware supplier and really good glue [two pack epoxy is best ] and simply cut to size and then just glue new velcro onto the base of the orbital sander

How to remove stain from wood


Sanding would seem to be the best method. Use an orbital (finishing) sander, rather than a belt sander, so you can smooth out and blend in the sanded area with the existing timber.

I am recently widowed and don't know how to get the sand paper out of and onto the sander


At both ends of the bottom pad, there are metal fittings that have a rectangular hole in the middle of them. Take a regular head screwdriver and put the tip in the hole and carefully but firmly lift up and hold while at the same time pushing the narrow edge of the 1/3 sheet sandpaper up under the metal piece which kind of looks like a C on its edge. Then let down the metal piece with the screwdriver and that edge of the sand paper should be held in place. Do the same thing for the other end of the sandpaper, making sure to pull the sandpaper sheet tight against the rubber pad.

Dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why does this sander jump around on the material and feel like it's fighting me all the time instead of sanding smooth and easy?


I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.

The vibrating plate stopped vibrating but the motor seems to be working ok. Either the plate is jammed or something broke. What do you think? This sander is probably 30 years old, very heavy duty.


check the bearing in the platen, it is probably seized up. you can go to Milwaukeetool.com and download a breakdown for this tool. Let me know and I will try and help further.

I need to remove the fan on my black and decker pad sander but theres no way to clamp the armature to unscrew the fan


Why would you want to remove the fan? There is a good chance that the fan is molded to the shaft and can not come off.

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.

No sanding action and motor just buzzes


It will probably be the shaft from the motor to the orbital cam which is on the flat plate that you connect the sandpaper to , either the shaft or the bottom cam is broken [probably the shaft has snapped ] you can do a cheap repair with a good glue to reconnect the shaft [but you wont be able to push too hard again] or if you can get the parts just replace the shaft into the motor . they are really simple things to work on

Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes


exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.
