On a review of the Performax 22-44 some of the jocks were saying they don’t use the little paper changing tool. It works so well I am convinced that they must not be using it right. So this is the tool.

Its only to be used on the clip on the right side. The other clip is not made the same way and your finger really is the easiest tool for that one. Now just hook the tool in the hole in the top of the clip.

Pull the handle straight out.

Then turn it counter clockwise and slip the notch in the handle onto the lip of the drum.

If you start by clipping in the paper on the left side and wrap it towards the right, you can slip it under the lip of the tool where it grabs the drum and then you have two free hands, a tightly wrapped drum, and the end of the paper right there ready to be tucked in. When you release the tool the clip grabs the paper and the pulls tight and takes up any slack that was left.

Hope this helps.

I have that tool for my 15/32. I had forgotten how to use it so I just change it manually, which is really not so bad. But I will go give it a second look. I remember that is was pretty cool.

Thanks for the reminder,

That’s really the tool? I thought you rigged up one of those bike rack hooks. lol. I’d love one of those sanders. I’m done getting tools this year though unless they are free (-:

I don’t know how you change the paper without the tool. It makes it quick and easy.

Just ordered the 16-32… I have small hands but I will try that tool again (could never get it to work on the 10-20).
Thanks for the instruction. You should write the Jet manual!
(for the 10-20, I just make a very curved needlenose plier to pull the paper tight)

Hmm… It takes me less than 5 seconds to tuck the paper in using my finger. I don’t remember the last time I saw that little tool.

$6.50 for shipping to the lower 48.

My fingers do the job, though.
