I am using the Fein Multimaster tool for the first time. I am trying to use the profile sanders, but am not having any luck. The clamp attachment that accomadates the different profile sander doesn’t seem to hold the sanders. The quick detach feature makes it easy to switch tool. I have not problem with that. However, when I put the rubber sanding profile and the sandpaper into the clamp attachment for it, the rubber profile sander comes out. It seem sturdy when the machine is off. But it’s not too long after turning the tool on and starting to sand that the profile sander comes loose from its clamp attachment. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong??

Slow your speed setting down. The higher speeds seam to be too much for the sander profiles.

That’s the solution. Thanks a bunch. I had a feeling it was something as simple as that.

I found an instruction paper and scanned it for you…

As you can see, first, the unit should be installed at 90° to the instrument and…

The speed should not be greater than #4 (on the dial)

Hi tresselk. I own Fein Multimasters, my advice to you is to use sand paper cut to size from belt sanders, it works amazing and you have the grid of your choice. I cal the multimaster ” My Girlfriend ” nobody in my creww is allowed to use it but me.
