How to Replace the Brush Strip on an Onfloor EZV Sander

Have you been in an annoying situation where the brush strips just fell off? These brush strips can fall off when the rivets are damaged. The brush strip prevents dust and leaves from entering the sander dome. Once this happens you will risk your sander pads getting damaged or your grommets being worn out because of the dust. This article will walk you through how to replace the brush strips on an OnFloor OF16S EZV Sander.

To begin working, pull the pinout of the handle, reposition the handle to the upright position, reinstall the pin, and then lay the machine back and rest it on the floor.

It's important that you wear safety glasses while performing this procedure.

Attach the new brush strip

When you're done with this step, pre-drill the first and last holes onto the new brush skirt by using the old skirt as a guide for the new hole placement. Now attach the new brush skirt's beginning and end to the bowl with the rivet gun through these new holes.

Attach the end of the new brush strip to the bowl with the rivet gun. Now pull the skirt around to place the other pre-drilled hole over the hole in the bowl where the two ends meet.

Drill the holes into the new brush strip

Now connect the brush where the two ends meet and put in the second rivet. Once that's attached, pull back on the brush strip around the bowl to make sure it's tight and even.

Now, while holding the brush strip secure, use the existing holes in the middle bowl as guides to drill holes for your remaining rivets to go into.

Once you're finished drilling your holes, go around and check that the brush strip is completely straight.
