Sander Pads
The pads on some sanders that accept sticky-back sanding sheets can eventually get gummed up and will no longer accept the sandpaper. Rather than going to the repair shop, go to a computer store and pick up a mouse pad. Cut it to fit your sander and glue it on with rubber cement

Replacement pads are available for hook-and-loop sanders
Replacing Sander Pads
The hook portion of the Velcro pad on sanders often wears out and becomes ineffective. Replacement pads are available that simply stick on.
