Question: R2600 Sanding Pad Assembly

DThompson

The hook & loop pad is completely worn and needs to be replaced. Do I need part 41 a or 41b or both ( the $6 or $13 part)?

Hi DThompson,
You just need 41a 300527002 hook and loop replacement pad.The 41b is for glue on discs.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Tinker
The PCB for the 2600 was discontinued, and I was wondering if this part could be as a replacement repair?

Thanks,
Matt

Hello hoodoshnik,

The part number 590936005 Brake Skirt is the same for the R2601 and R2600. You will have no problem using either of them.

Question: Length Of Service

barryboy

how long should I get service out of this part. Seems like they wear out quickly
Tinkerdave
Reply: Length Of Service

Tinkerdave

Hi barryboy,
That part is a high wear item.Just purchase 5 or 6 of them and replace them as needed.How fast the wear out depends on what your sanding and how much pressure you apply to the tool while sanding.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: Ridgid Orbit Sander

jmika

The pad on my sander is fine but the sanding pads are not sticking to it as well as they use to and some pads don't stick at all. Can you buy the adhesive film on the pad that causes the sanding pads to stick to the sander or do you have to buy a whole new pad? There's an additional pad in the case that came with the sander but it doesn't have that "sticky" film on it.

Question: Problem Sander

rjones

For the last week when I fire up m r2600 it makes a horrible tinny noise, yesterday it went into full rpm mode and nothing I could do would slow it down. I did pull the bottom off it a couple of days and there is a bottom bearing that felt pretty stiff. it is attached to a disc that I assume is the vacuum.

Question: Hook And Loop Plus Backing

bob baker

I've read the other comments on the hook and loop I disagree that it will last for thousands of changes. From the date I changed the first sanding disk the loop started coming loose and got harder and harder to remove the paper as the loop was pulling off. In addition the main disk assembly started slinging chunks of rubber until today it totally separated from the sander. It is a wonderful sander but very troublesome and useless when you cannot find repair parts at Home Depot or other parts houses in town. In addition I was told this and many other Rigid tools had a life time warranty now they seem to have forgotten this.

Question: No Power

My Ridgid 5" orbital sander just stopped working. I do get the light on my power cord however. Any suggestions?

It could be a bad switch. Part #7622701. Same thing happened to mine. I ordering one today.

Reply: No Power

It is more than likely the PCB (printed circuit board). I have one under warranty now and have had the whole unit replaced once by Home Depot. Another older one made it past the warranty before it went out. I've replaced the PCB twice on it. Now going on the third PCG for this one. The newer sanders have a better warranty, be sure to register it. I've had no other issues with the R2600 besides having to replace the brake shroud, typical for all RO sanders. The Rigid sander is the best, hands down except the PCB is weak.

Question: Hook And Loop Pad

Larry

I just ordered another hook and loop pad for my Rigid R2600 sander. This is the second replacement. Why are they going bad? They only last a short time until the discs quit sticking to them. Is there a problem with the quality?
Mark
Reply: Hook And Loop Pad

Mark

Hook & Loop sanding pads offer many benefits to the woodworker. They offer the ability to change sanding grits quickly. The user may remove and then reattach a sandpaper disc allowing for maximum use and reducing the cost of sandpaper.

The Hook & Loop sandpaper system consists of a sanding pad with fine plastic hooks, which is attached to the sander, and sandpaper discs, which have a looped fabric backing. The loops on the fabric backing are held by the hooks on the sanding pad.

Hook & Loop sanding pads will last through many hundreds of sandpaper discs with proper use. The most common cause of a Hook & Loop pad to wear out prematurely is excessive pressure being applied to the sanding pad. Only enough pressure should be applied to the sander to keep it on the workpiece and to guide the sander in the desired sanding pattern. Excessive pressure creates heat build up in the sanding pad which will quickly damage or even melt the tiny plastic hooks. Once the hooks are damaged they will no longer hold the fabric backing on the sandpaper effectively and the pad will need to be replaced. When excessive pressure is applied it slows or even stops the random action of the sander causing a large increase in swirl marks left on the workpiece.

Best results and fastest sanding will be achieved by using light sanding pressure and a proper selection of sandpaper grits. Start with the coarsest grit needed to quickly remove any rough wood surfaces or uneven glue joints. Once the surface has been smoothed and leveled you can move through the sanding grits to the desired finish. Never skip more than one sanding grit at a time. Skipping grits requires additional time and effort to remove the scratches left by the previous grit. The finest grit needed depends on the type of finish the project will receive. If a film finish, such as polyurethane or lacquer is to be used then 180 or 220 grit will be sufficient. Film finishes can have problems adhering to surfaces sanded finer than 220 grit. If the project is to receive an oil finish then a 400 or even 600 grit finish may be desired.

Question: Disc Keep Spinning

When I turn the sander off the sanding disc keeps spinning and spinning, and spinning.

Question: Disc Spins

dennis

when I pick the sander up off the wood, the sanding pad immediately starts to spin extremely fast so that if I place the sander back on the wood it sands huge gouges out of the surface until the pressure of sanding stops the spin

Hi Dennis,

It sounds like the brake skirt is bad. It acts like a clutch when the sander is put to the workpiece. The Brake Skirt is part #590936001 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.

Hi John,

It sounds like the pad bearing has failed. When the bearing seizes it slows or even stops the motion of the sander. The bearing is part #680071004 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.

Question: Ridgid R2600 5" Variable Sp...

Twysted

When I turn on my R2600 it winds out to full RPM and doesn't seem orbit at all. When I put it down against wood it bogs down and I get circular swirls and dust flies everywhere... may as well put a grinder disk on!

Anyone have ideas on the part(s) I need to fix this?

Hi Twysted,

It sounds like the brake on your Ridgid R.O. sander has gone bad. The part you will need to replace is called the Brake Skirt. It is item #39 on the parts diagram.

The Brake Skirt is part #590936001

The Brake skirt is available from ereplacementparts.com.

Good luck with your repair!

After a few minutes of use, the hook and loop backing pad disintegrated. The foam backing came apart as black dust. There is no mechanical connection between the pad and the tool, only foam. This tool should not be classified as a random orbital sander such as a D.A. Efforts to purchase a replacement proved impossible. Home Depot sells them, but does not carry replacement pats . Available in two weeks on the internet with outrageous shipping. Rigids suggestion was to over nite the part at my expense. Will never buy a tool again that the vendor does not carry routine service parts.
