backing plate kit
April 15, 2014
I just ordered it to see what came in the kit. I needed the backing plate and was hoping for female adaptors 5/16 on both ends and 5/15 to 1/4 same. I have 2 of these sanders an astro and a 3M and they don't tell you that it is extremely hard to find backing pads for these sanders which turned out to be the same sander. I`m a bowl turner and I use 2 and 3 inch backing pads and II go through them pretty fast. I like the sander but I`m ready to toss them and find something else.
Cons:The adaptor makes the sander a little harder to control.
