    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powerful & Useful but with Limitations Effective product for woodworking needs-I'm refinishing 100 + year old hardwood floors and needed something that could pack a punch while getting into grooves where commercial equipment fails. My biggest complaint-the hook and loop sanding pad has a limited lifespan. I have a few of these sanders and this is a repeat problem. Notoriously, the hooks and loops wear down, and the adhesive sanding discs go flying across the room. After this happens, the only option is a replacement pad, which, I'm having difficulty finding. Who has/sells them? It's something to consider as this sander unit generally retails around $100 while replacement pads seem to be around $30 each. Over the life of this sander, this cost adds up!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk As most of the other 1 star reviews state, the screws that hold the pad in place will not stay. There is some sort of plastic bottom on the inside/underside of the pad that will eventually wear and melt to the point that the screws and the finishing washers will not hold and rattle completely loose. I've used it lightly for about a year. You also need to be very careful when removing used sandpaper otherwise the velcro pad they stick to will tear off as well. I like other ridgid tools but this 6" sander sucks.

    Where can one buy 6" orbital sandpaper for this machine? It is not listed on the Homedepot.ca website. No point in buying it without an ample supply of orbital sandpaper.  

    Asked by: Boatman
    i got the Bosch 6-inch Dual-Mode Electronic Random Orbit Sander/Polisher from Home Depot. Same problem with the 6 inch sand paper. Hook and Loop. Princess Auto pack of 30 for $24.00 60 Grit;80 Grit;120Grit;and 220Grit. Saved Me. Hope you found some if bought 2 years ago. Long wait for a answer to question. sometimes use ' sanding discs'
