how to fix velcro on sander
« on: August 12, 2020, 09:54:10 PM »
I thought with all the tool people on here, someone might know how to do it,  I have an older black and decker orbital sander and the hook and loop pad is worn out.  I have tried 2 different replacement pads from Amazon, and they are wrng, they do not fit this sander correctly, so they were sent back. 

Is there a way to scrape it off that is easy and an appropriate adhesive and hook sheet product ?  Or is it just time for a new sander ?

Here ya go MM. Two vids. The first mentions a pad with an adhesive back. The second uses a glue applied to the sander to hold the pad.

Piece of cake either way.
