The sandpaper on electric sanders wears down fast, so replacement often is necessary. Many kinds of sandpaper can be used on a metal disc, some of which have adhesive or Velcro-like attachments already. But if you must glue your sandpaper onto your sanding disc, use an adhesive that holds the paper on and that can also be removed without too much trouble afterward.
Things You'll Need
- Automotive carburetor cleaner
- Water-displacing spray
- Putty knife
Scrape old glue off the metal disc, using a putty knife and a rag with carburetor cleaner or water-displacing spray.
Apply the adhesive to the metal disc in a light, even coat. Allow it to set for approximately 30 seconds, then put the sandpaper on. Allow the glue to dry for another 10 minutes.
Remove the sandpaper when it wears out. Use the putty knife and carburetor cleaner to clean the metal disc before applying a new sheet of sandpaper.
