    Are There Conversion Kits for Makita GV5000 Sander?

    Is there a kit for the Makita GV5000 sander that converts it from an adhesive back to a hook and loop back?



    If not - or even if so - are there any hacks for this kind of conversion that you know of?

    Here's the original question from one of our site visitors:
    do you sell a conversion kit for a makita gv5000 sander to convert from an adhesive back to a hook and loop back.?
    Thank you guys - I will point our questioner over here.

    You can get a 5" adhesive backed pad with hook and loop on the other side from Home depot. I just bought one to replace the one on my ROS. It should work fine. I think it was 5 or 6 bucks.
