What does my grinder need to fit the Contour Sander?

The Contour Sander fits most 4″ (100mm) and 4 1/2″ (115mm) angle grinders. However, when choosing an angle grinder to suit the blade, you should look for the following features:

  • An auxiliary handle to ensure easier balance, manage and control. Using the handle when carving not only improves user comfort and visibility but increases user safety. 
  • A metal guard that can be rotated and fixed to 45 degrees
  • On/Off switch to be positioned on the top or side 
  • 550 Watts power, at a minimum 
  • Should have a spindle thread of: 
  • M14 (AUS and UK) |  M14 (Europe) | 5/8″ (North America)

The Contour Sander can be used on a variable speed, cord, or cordless grinder, as long as it runs at a speed of 9000 RPM or higher

The shaft does not fit my grinder.

Possible cause: Incorrect thread or adapter
Solution: Check thread, locate the correct adapter

  • In Europe the shafts suits an M14 thread
  • In North America, the shaft suits a 5/8″ UMC x 11 thread
  • In Australia the shaft suits an M14.

Possible Cause: Excessive flexing of the rubber pad in deep contours
Solution: Use a plastic flange to hold either the paper or cloth discs.

Why does my sanding pad not sand at all when stalled?

Possible cause: Shaft axis not aligned correctly with grinder spindle
Solution: Check that the extension shaft has fully tightened to the base of the grinder spindle. Do not use the base collar nut that is usually used to locate a grinding disc.

Possible Cause: Grinder spindle not accurate 
Solution: Try on another grinder

Can I make my sanding pads to use on the Contour Sander?
