remove the bolts

Remove two bolts with the two socket wrenches. The three sander pads rotate freely, so you may need to create some leverage in order to remove the bolts.

We create this leverage by making sure that the two wrenches are set in opposite positions, one clockwise and one counter clockwise. This will prevent the rotation while the bolts are being removed.
