You can go to and under products scroll down to find your sander. They also have a dealer locator that will find someone in your area. I looked at both the breakdown and manual for this tool and am concerned because it says pressure sensitive, but the literature states hook and loop, so you would have to specify the hook and loop. Let me know if you have any problems finding someone and I will try and help

Often it really takes some effort to get the piston fully retracted, as it must be with new pads.

A really helpful tool is a C-clamp. put the anvil on the outside of the caliper, and put the threaded part into the piston, and see if it looks like it will retract a little further.

SOURCE: DW411 Can I put a velcro

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.

What is the usages of a PALM SANDER?

Buying something with serious money and using that to your advantage may not always meet the same fate. What would happen if you got yourself a pricy palm sander but couldn't get the job done after spending a considerable amount of time and efforts? That's the result you, for sure, want to avoid. Learning the method to properly use a palm sander can help you avoid such a consequence.
Here are the steps you have to master to use a palm sander efficiently.


You have to know first to switch on the power button of the sander to make it run. Otherwise, you won't be able to work with it as a sander of wood.


You have to manage sandpaper and make it into pieces as the palm sander is small in size, and its pad can accept a quarter of the regular sand paper.


The square pad of a palm sander can accept the quarter of regular sandpaper. So, cut it into pieces as needed. After making the quarterly pieces of a regular sandpaper tie tightly with the sanding pad.


It may sound much that may harm your ears. So please ware the ear sound protector for the safety of your ear. Also, you can use glass for the safety of your eyes but it's not urgent.


Before using as woodworking tool, you have to catch tightly the handle of the palm sander with a hand and another hand will give pressure on the sander for working well and maintaining the center of the work.
Now, the sander is ready for using. When the sandpaper will be needed to change, you have to change it following these steps:
  • Remove the used sandpaper from the sanding pad
  • Manage a regular sandpaper
  • Cut quarterly or as per it needed.
  • Tie the cut sandpaper tightly with the sanding pad
Collecting the accumulated dust In time of sanding the wood, you have to notice the dust collecting hole. When the dust collecting hole gets full, you have to clean it to sand well.


Before using the sander on the wood, you have to fix how deep it will be sanded. If you don't do it, you may not get a successful sanding on the wood or it may damage you wood making much deep than your need.
  • After using the sander, please keep it in a safe place for further usage.
It is common that you want the utmost benefits from your palm sander. But, having the highest quality sander does not ensure that you would get the most of it. You need to understand how the machine typically works. To be more precise, you should learn you can use a palm sander.
The above guide is designed to help you with the steps involved in the proper use of a palm sander. Hopefully, the steps are understandable enough.

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.

Festool RO 125 leaves scuff marks when sanding

depends how important it is to vacuum the dust, most generic brand sandpaper discs will have different hole placements for the sander and the vacuum cant suck the dust up. if you are getting swirl marks from the edge of the sander, is the disc too small? a generic brand that is slightly larger may work but try and keep the sander flat or the excess disk can cause a little trouble with the finish.

The sawdust is not going to the bag. I've completely blown my sander with air and tried to unclog anything without taking the sander apart, but still all sawdust stays on the belt and not going up the...

The dust bags on most sanders are only marginally effective. They work OK on random orbit sanders with the holes in the sanding pad, but are next to useless on belt sanders. You might try attaching a vacuum cleaner hose instead of the bag. On the other hand, if the the belt is clogging up, that's not going to be helped by attaching a vacuum hose. The belt is "loading" up probably because the material you are sanding is damp, or maybe you are sanding paint, which tends to melt then stick to the belt. If you are just trying to keep the belt from clogging (or unclogging it), rather than keeping the dust contained, try running the belt against a wire brush after every couple of minutes. Good luck, Al K

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.
