Take that new velcro off immediately. As many here have insisted, you
need to go out and buy a more expensive tool! Sticking a new piece of
velcro on the old pad can't possibly work properly, and may even cause
your entire family to die.
While that may be true, one needs to ask oneself: "what have they done
I'm a big fan of Harbor Freight for some things. I'm blessed with one
about 3 miles down the road. My experience with their electric tools
has not been good. However, when I was looking for cheap tools to carry
in an emergency kit for my motorcycle, they were the place for cheap
wrenches, screwdrivers, and impact sockets. I always get pneumatic
stuff from them for next to nothing. Nobody makes a cheaper digital
volt-ohm meter ($3) But I won't buy electric tools from them.
I've had great luck with their electric impact tools. I have one of their
big breaker hammers that I've put a zillion hours on. Also a lowend
hammerdrill that has done great so far (medium hours), and just got a demo
hammer that works very well, but I don't know yet about durability.
However, I tried a recip saw that was a POS.

Well, when you start with an incorrect statement, it's not surprising
that you end up with an incorrect conclusion. The Fein blades will not
fit the HF tool. The Fein has a fancy quick release mount that doesn't
require a deep offset for a bolt head, which is how blades and sanding
pads are mounted to the HF tool.

You mean the new Fein tools have the quick release mount. The 636 -
of which there are many many thousands of units out there, and the
consumables and replacement parts for them are readily available - has
the "old-fashioned" bolt mount. There are also other manufacturers -
Bosch, Dremel, Rockwell, etc. Another H&L pad would probably fit, or
be easily modified.
