I was using my Ryobi 1/4 sheet sander (model # S605D8) when small, sharp metal pieces started shooting out of the vent slots on the side of the unit followed by pieces of shredded hard plastic. I powered off & unplugged the unit and removed the bottom plate and the area where the bearing are located were jammed up with thin, twisted and jagged metal, as though a thin, wavy washer had disintegrated. I was able to avoid injury but there is a great danger for potential lacerations from this flying debris.
