Question and Answers


I can't get one side to clamp and hold the sand paper BO4550 Makita Finishing sander


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Without additional details and without seeing the sander it would be difficult to say what part may be needed. It may need a new foot. The clamping system consist of a foot, clamper and lever. Prebending (creasing) the paper first makes attachment easier and then it may hold. Once the paper is in place, return the lever to its original position. 

The problem could be bent lever, foot or clamper. You can look up and order parts at Sears Parts Direct. I also added a link to the instructions manual if needed. The manual has the parts list and parts breakdown. Call parts and they can likely have it shipped to your local Sears store for pick up or order it online.
