One of my detail sanders landing in a bad way from a fall onto a concrete floor. Rather than trying to source out a replacement head I just printed one out in 3 hours. Gotta love having a personal factory at your fingertips.

The original part was superglued back together to get some decent dimensions for reverse engineering.

To strengthen the stem I made a cavity for a standard M8x30 socket head bolt to be epoxied in for a little added rigidity.


  1. Print the head with the sanding pad surface as your reference base.
  2. Breakaway/dissolve/drill out any support material.
  3. Epoxy M8x30 socket head bolt into stem.
  4. Reassemble onto the Ryobi sander.
  5. Transfer felt sanding pad to new head and affix with double sided tape.
