Vac-Sys & Ro 90 Tip/Maintenance
« on: February 09, 2019, 02:30 PM »
I went into the shop on Friday to find a white plastic cap about 2cm in diameter on the ground. Before I throw it in the scrap bin, I tried to find out where it could come from. Here my finding

One of the Vac-Sys screw went lose pop out the cap and was about to fall from the base. The Vac-Sys has been used for about 5hrs max. The reason for the screw to get lose is probably about vibration.

Lesson learned #1: Check both screws before and after each use  [smile]

A good friend of mine borrowed the RO 90 to sand a few doors. He was using the Delta pad and when I removed the pad to put back the circular one I found this.

And this is how it should look  [big grin]


Lesson learned #2: Clean residue regularly, not only when you switch pads.

Hi Mario,

I also noticed this, even when the RO90 is used with the round pad in normal fashion.
I keep a small, maybe 1/2 inch wide paint brush in the Systainer. Makes cleaning out the pad mount a breeze...

My Ro 90 fills up quickly too, I use a brushed nozzle on my vac to clean it.
