    Problems with the sand paper staying on the DA sander.

     



    The old wheel I had on the DA was starting to come apart so I bought a new one.
    Anyway I will start sanding and within a couple minutes the sand paper will fly off
    even though the surface is clean that I put the sand paper on. Is there any tricks
    or sticky stuff I can put on the pad to help the sand paper stay on.
    This paper ain't cheap and the sanding surface ain't even worn down at all and I have to use a new piece because it won't stick to the pad anymore. Any sugestion from the body guys on here. Thanks for the help.

    wipe new pad clean with lacquer thinner .if that will not work pick up some stick it glue for the paper that may help make the paper have more hook up to pad

    That's why I converted to Velco type 15 years ago.
    The heat created softens up ANY glue and slings the paper off B4 it's worn out.
    Granted the velcro type is more $$$ but, the off set is, ya can pull off a piece and reuse it if your just doin a small area going up in grits.
    Just my 2 cents.
    When I get to where I was goin, I forgot why I went there>

    Thanks DA34guy and Dave; I was looking for that in Pahrump but no one out here has it.
    I sprayed it with some of the wifes hair spay last night and it seem to be holding on now.
    I am heading in to Vegas this morning for a tool to put the new door skins on my 70 pickup
    so I pick one of the hook pads up at the paint store, I have to pick up some primmer/ filler
    thats compatable with the PPG base coat/ clear coat. The primmer I have is a sandable
    primmer and they said it won't work with the base coat/ clear coat.
    No Gary my disc pad is a Campbell Hausfeld Standard 5/16in. -24 thread, and the sanding disc's
    are Crystal Bay 345U that I bought from the auto body supply whare house.
    They are not the cheap one's and I have a hole roll of these things that won't stick.
    Thanks guy's for your help and input.

    Yup, that old stuff was a mess!!!! Think I still have some 250 grit up in the cabinet!!!!! I really like using the hook and loop on an inline or a longboard as you don't have to peel it off and throw it away when it's only half used up cuz you need to go to a finer grit.... Being the cheap Norwegian that I am, I even trim a used 6" hook and loop paper and use it on my 3" DA. Works great on jambs and small parts!

    If you get 3M stuff, make sure it's the right stuff, Kurt!!!! 3M 'Hook-it' and Hook-it 2" are not the same---Hook and loops are on different places, one has the hooks on the backup pad, the other has the hooks on the paper!!!! Whichever style you get, make sure they are compatible!!!!!

    They're about the same, usually better selection and pricing on the original 'Hook it".... Lots of companies besides 3M that make the same paper, too....

    I have had good luck with 3M™ Stikit™ Film 265L Disc Rolls never a problem. Dittos on using lacquer thinner to clean the DA pad . NAPA sells the 3M Stikit, comes on a roll like paper towels.

    oh the good old days . heat up a putty knife to clean the gummy gooy goop off the pad . start putty some beef on the da glue would get soft then the sand paper would go air born
