ETS 150/3 EQ disassembly
« on: July 14, 2019, 05:59 PM »
One of my employees used my 150/3 for wet sanding Waterlox, and now it's pretty gummed up in the area above the pad. 

There appears to be some type of aluminum turbine wheel that is inside the brake collar, visible when the sanding pad is removed.  I'm presuming that this is what creates suction when using the sander with a bag instead of a vacuum. It appears to be either pressed on to the motor shaft or perhaps there is a set screw holding it in place (that I can't see due to the gunk).

I'd like to remove the turbine wheel and brake collar for cleaning, but can't figure out how it comes apart.  Can anybody advise me how to disassemble this?

Thanks much.

Scott

In the middle there's a bolt with the two flat sides you have to remove. In my experience this thing is always extremely tight. I guess Festool has special tooling for this. I never got as far as removing it so I don't know what comes after.

You can find an exploded view of your tool in Festool's Ekat spare parts catalog.

In this website's menu it's under Additional Websites > Spare Parts Catalog
