Amazon sells the exact product--however there interior connection is made of plastic, only lasts for 2 minutes, then the teeth chip away.This product is made of metal, correct?
I will double check but I do not recall any plastic in this part. In fact I have never seen a Fein part that was shoddy.
The connection plate is aluminum and backs the entire back of the pad.
I've had my Fein Multimaster for over 10 years and added some cutting options later. Yes, the attachment points are metal with a hex bolt that holds it in place. The body is plastic, but heavy duty. It also has a very long cord, indicative of this high quality tool. For what it's worth I have a Fein vacuum that's also over 10 years old. I would not live without it, by far the best vacuum out there, light years above the big box store versions.
my fein sanding pad doesn't last very long because the triangular points on the sanding pad breaks quite often. what mey be the cause of this?
I love my Fein, but I must admit I have similar problems. For me, I tend to wear out the hook and loop surface on the points. Usually it is because I am pushing too hard and not letting the tool do the work.
Unfortunately, this seems to be a common problem. The only thing I can recommend is to try and use the sides where possible and only use the pointy ends when there is no other choice. It simply wears down quicker than it should IMO.
The problem is the metal backing of the pad is very thin. I have trouble with them bending up so that the pad surface is not flat. It doesn't help if you drop the sander, or it falls off the work bench. The only answer I can think of is a light touch when sanding and let the Fein do the work -- don't force it.
Is this 3" on each side? I can't find any dimensions listed. I have different paper and want to make sure it fits.
3" point to point
Iwould have to meawsure mine and its at the boat shop. I don't think its 3 inclees a side --more like 2 1/4 - 2 1/2. However, you will not be happy trying to fit other paper on a Fein. Bite the bullet and order the Fein paper. It will last a long time and do a good job.
3 1/8"nice service.
Fein MultiMaster Triangle Sanding Pads
We use our MultiMaster frequently both at our all wood home and to sand teak on our Hans Christian sailboat. The pads do wear out at the tips if I am purposefully sanding in areas that require detail, but I am usually very cognizant of wear on the tips of the sandpaper itself. rotating the sand paper triangle seems to lengthen the life of the hook and loop pad. We have not expreienced the "melting" issue experienced by others and have used out Fein tool for over three years (a lot). Charles Hall; s/v First Light
Sanding pad melts
After my first sand job with this tool (very mild application to some window trim) the sanding attachment had melted at the pressure points. I hadn't applied much pressure at all. Now the sanding pads won't attach because the 'hooks' are a melted mess.
I love the Fein multimaster but they really cheaped out with these replacement pads. After having three of them fall apart, pad peeling right off the smooth stainless plate to which they are glued, I took them to the drill press, countersunk holes in the pad, screwed them each together with 3 SS #8s with nylon locknuts and ... viola, no more problem. This would have been much easier if done before they fall apart. Matter o' fact, it would be even easier if theey were manufacturered that way. For the prices being charged for Fein attachments, they should do this to start (and custom engrave them and put them in a velvet-line box)! Just my too sense.
Fein multimaster sanding pads
Need to be VERY careful when changing sanding sheets, as it's easy to pull the sanding pad apart.
Work great, easily damaged, expensive
If you are doing a lot of detail sanding you will want to get a stack of these. They work great but are awfully expensive. Keep an eye out to make sure your sandpaper doesn't wear down too far -- the next step is into this part. In theory if you always change your sandpaper in time you will never need to change this. In reality you will change them every 20 pads or so.
They work well except for...
The Fein multimaster is a great tool that I use all the time in the restoration of a 45 year old sailboat. And these sanding pads work very well except for the fact that I have pulled the rubber pad off the metal backer on everyone I have owned accidentally by removing the sandpaper when it is spent. The hook and loop holds so well that the glue holding the pad to the metal backer lets go before the hook and loop does. You have to be very careful to pry the sandpaper off the rubber pad.
