SOURCE: sandpaper will not stick to rubber bed bosch

This is generaly due to previous adhesive buildup on the backing pad OR, the face of the backing pad is breaking down and cracking.There are two ways to handle this. You can try scrubing the crud off the pad (I wouldn't) or, you can get a new backing pad for your sander. At this point, you might want to go with a velcro type pad or hook and loop as they call it (cleaner and no goop). Check your local home depot for pads. If you cannot find one, I would suggest you call Klingspor abrasives Co. They have area reps all over the United States. I know, as I used to be one of them.They carry,.. and will send you pads via UPS. Just make sure you don't try to put a 6in pad on a 5in sander or vice-versa as the pads are weight-mated to the sanders. If you do, you will burn up the motor in your sander rather quickly.

How do you get the sandpaper on?


With a palm sander they are either self adhesive or you glue them on. Some have a clamp if the sandpaper is rectangular. It depends on what your sander is.

How often should you replace the sand on a SP714TX? my pool water is cloudy


Sand is cheap so replace it if you think that is the problem. i would be looking into water chemistry also. Take your samples of water to a reputable pool shop and let them test it. They will usually do it for free since most likely you will need chemicals to remedy the situation.

Sheets keep coming off during sanding


The sandpaper will come off for one of these reasons: 1. The spring clips are to loose to hold the sandpaper. 2. You are using sandpaper that the paper's either too thick for the clips to hold it or too thin to withstand the work you are putting it through. 3. (Most likely) You are pushing down on the sander too hard while sanding. These types of sanders work by their own weight with only a little help from you.

DW411 Can I put a velcro pad on this sander so I don't have to fumble around trying to get sand paper on it


Dewalt is not going to make an accessory for you to do so, since that sander was designed to use 1/4 sheet sandpaper, and therefore takes standard paper clamped in place. You could make your own base for the sander out of thin plywood or some other suitable material, covered perhaps with a laminate or rubber surface, that would accept PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) sandpaper, which you can buy in rolls appropriately sized for your sander. Or you can try some kind of after-market conversion kit such as this one (See also here, etc.)
If you really want a hook and loop base on your sander, I recommend you bite the bullet and simply purchase a random orbital sander with a H&L pad. Then you'll of course have to buy the perforated paper discs to go with it....
But you'll easily be able to change grits, and the performance and quality of your sanding will improve.
You might check the reviews in various woodworking magazines before you make a purchase, just so you know what you're likely to get for your money. There's a vast array of machines made, and the quality varies accordingly, and depends to some extent on your budget and intended use.
Good luck!

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

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.

I want to locate and change the thermostat.


The thermostat is easy to find. Follow the upper radiator hose where it clamps onto the engine. The part that the hose clamps onto is a cover for the thermostat. Check the hose and make sure that it's in good shape; if there's soft spots, worn spots, or places where oil has gotten onto it and softened it, you will want to replace it as well. If so, you will want to drain about a half of a gallon out of the radiator first, then proceed. If you're keeping the hose, you can use a clamp and a couple of pieces of metal or wood to clamp the hose shut to keep it from leaking all over. After the hose is clamped, remove the clamp that holds the end of the hose to the engine, then remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat cover on. Remove the cover, clean the area up, making sure it's dry. Lift the thermostat out, and put the new one on exactly as the old one was. It is possible to put it on backwards, and that will cause huge problems. after the thermostat is in place. Taking the gasket that should come with the thermostat, if it's a flat gasket, put a bit of High-temp silicone sealant on it, spreading it thinly over the entire gasket. place the gasket in place, and bolt the cover in place. If it uses a rubber o-ring, replace as well, but silicone is not required. After the cover is bolted in place, reattach the hose, remove the clamp keeping it from leaking, and replace any antifreeze that you may have lost. Moniter for leaks for the next couple of weeks, check when you fill it with gas and check oil.

Pad on 9045B sander


Remove the bottom faom pad, which should just be held on with phillips screws. Under this you will see the eccentric weight that has a screw in the middle. Not sure if it is left hand thread or not so be carefull. It is normally thread locked aswell so be firm but fair when unscrewing it. Once it's out you should be able to lever the weight of by applying equal pressure to each side of it. It will be centered on a woodruff key so be cartefull not to lose it. Also, in between this part of the base and the main body of the machine there is a rubber skirt that is clamped to both parts. Unscrew the band clamping the skirt to the base and I think you should be able to pry it apart then.

How to attach sand paper to the Kirby Turbo Sander attachment?


There is a plastic guard around the edges that comes off. Then, there are clamps that hold each end of the sandpaper. If you can't see the clips, then the guard is still on and needs to be removed. Hope this helps...
