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.

It appears that there are 2 clips that need to be lifted to remove and install the paper, They dont offer any operators manual online for this tool, but look at the front and rear of the tool and see if you can find a lever to turn or lift to release the clamps.

Why is my 5" sanding disks not sticking to my sander?


The holes are to suction dust for a vacuum attachment or dust collection bag. The sander will have a very smooth pad almost shiny if it takes stick-on discs (PSA). If not it will be a velcro pad and in that case you need the velcro discs. This description sounds like you have a velcro pad. Sticky discs wont stick to a velcro pad.

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.

How to replace the sand paper on skil sander hi speed 439


the skil 439 is a palm orbital finish sander. To replace the paper, pop the springs off the side where they take a 90 degree turn towards the work surface. To replace paper, rip a piece of standard sand paper into quarters, reverse removal and done. It's a pretty nice older sander and yes I have one.

I just aquired a used Skil Model 409 orbital sander and am having trouble inserting the paper. Is there a technique peculiar to this machine that?


Sorry, I was missing that part. You got it right, though. three hands is the answer. Orrr, you could go get some nice sticky back papers and cheat. They come in a variety of sizes or can be cut from full sheets. what you have there is a good sander to use while you figure out what kind of sander you want:)

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.

How to remove round sander for iron shaped one


You need to remove the allen head cap screw in the center of the base, then remove the washer, and pull the base straight down off the sander. If you can't get it to pull off, try gently rocking it a little as you exert pressure to pull it off.

Random orbit sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a random orbit sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. B)
- Place the sanding base (3) onto the spindle (10).
- Place the washer (7) onto the spindle.
- Insert the Allen screw (8) into the screw hole in the spindle.
- Tighten the Allen screw using the Allen key (9) supplied.
- To remove the sanding base, remove the Allen screw (8) and washer (7).
Fitting sanding sheets (fig. C)
- Hold the tool with the sanding base (3) facing upwards.
- Place the sanding sheet (11) onto the sanding base (3). The holes in the sheet do not need
to line up with the holes in the base.
Large detail sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a detail sander or an orbital sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. D & E)
For detail sanding, the pointed end should face forward as in fig. D. For sanding large areas,
the pointed end should face to the back as in fig. E.
- Place the sanding base (12) onto the spindle (10). Make sure that the legs of the base
locate into the tool.
- Place the washer (7) onto the spindle.
- Insert the Allen screw (8) into the screw hole in the spindle.
- Tighten the Allen screw using the Allen key (9) supplied.

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
