  • OT...Porter Cable Profile Sander

    On Saturday, I bought a Porter Cable model 9444 profile sander.
    http://www.porter-cable.com/index.asp?e=547&p=2783

    It has the hook and loop pad to hold the diamond shaped sanding papers in place. I used the sander for less than an hour total sanding time, and the adhesive that holds the "hook" side of the fastening system let loos, and it went flying. Now, I have a completely worthless, $79.00 sander.

    Question being...What kind of adhesive can I glue the hook pad back on with that will hold up? I am assuming that the bitter cold temperatures in my shop may have had something to do with the adhesive failure. Will the average contact cement from the hardware store do the trick?

    Thanks!

      Years ago I bought a squeeze bottle of adhesive from Sears that was intended for gluing sanding disks to their combination 6X48 belt and disk sander.
      It is a white, milky looking stuff, and really works great.

        Have had the same problem with my Fein sander. With just the small finger pads. Acording to Fein the heat form to much preesure desorys the pad part. Try some expox to glue a new peice of velcorw on to the pad
