I purchased this pad a few months ago and am a hobbyist, so I don't use it too frequently. The pad no longer has enough "stick" to hold the sand paper. If I have to keep buying these pads it's going to be a very expensive sander very quickly. I like the sander but without a good pad, what's it worth?
I have owned my Makita sander for at least 2o years with no problems other than that the loop and hook backing pad finally disintegrated. After not being able to use it for about 5 years, I ordered this replacement backing pad from PCO. It took only 5 minutes to install,, and it works great!
Fit like a shoe just like it was new again. Very satisfied.
I use my sander to sand down to metal before painting auto parts. I also use on my antique furniture to refurbish the old to new. go thru a lot of these pads but use sander daily. I buy all my parts thru Tyler Tool as online shopping is great. Plenty of help if need be on ordering. Shipping is always what they say or sooner.I have no complaints.
