Pads for old RO150E
« on: April 26, 2017, 01:27 PM »
Hello

Can anyone help me out ?

I have an old RO150E where the pad is worn out.
I have ordered a new pad which seemed to fit from the picture in the webshop.
But when i got the pad, it was the type as the grey ones in the pictures.

The grey one do attach with a bolt, the same as the old (blue) one.
But the hole in the middle is not quite the same, and the new grey one is also slightly taller which means that the dust seal is a little open.

Anybody know if I can use the grey pad or somewhere I can buy the old type of pad ?

I bought the grey one by Axminster in the UK ( I live in Denmark ) and they have been helpful but cannot really help me.

Hi Avo,

I also have an RO150E and have replaced the pad on mine. I think the pad is specific to this model so you will need to make sure that which ever one you get is for the 150E. I think I got mine direct from Festool UK, but it was couple of years ago.

I know you can buy them from CDUK, as they list them specifically for the RO150E. They do Hard, Medium & Soft pads, depending on what type of surfaces you are sanding.

Edit. I've also found these from a German supplier     http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sanding-pad-soft-6-150mm-for-Festool-RO150-Multi-Air-Holes-Hook-and-Loop-DFS/111342787485?_trksid=p2385738.c100677.m4598&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D7e2344ce004d40e183b65d75a463ef51%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D21%26sd%3D111342753079

Hi

Thanks for the information. I have checked their shop, and they are writing ( Now 498988 ) which i think is the type with the two wings,
But I have send them an email to check which type they have now.

Also edit : The german supplier looks fine. They are a bit cheaper and have both soft and hard. Thanks again :-)

Hi.

CDUK never answered my question, but the german supplier delivered a new pad within a few days. Works great and i can use all my stock of sandpaper.

The pads i got from Axminster was returned and they refunded both the price and the postage. Nice and very professional service :-) ( Need some kind of pocket hole jig, and other parts...Probly going to buy at axminster )
