Question about Dewalt Tools & Hardware - Others

1 Answer

I use Dewalt random orbital sanders regularly while I construct rustic log furniture. After a couple of years of use sanding the curved surfaces of logs, the hook and loop sanding disks no longer adhere to the sanding pad. What can I do to address this problem? The sanders are dewalt models D 26451 and DW 421

The velcro pads wear out and need to be replaced periodically. You can buy new pads on-line at any Dewalt parts seller.

Impossible not to get water in the bearings and motor. It is vibrating too fast. You need air sander. Or sand dry, then wet sand the primer by hand.

I think your model holds the paper with glue that is on the sand paper.Just take apart the back cover of the sand paper to expose the glue.

Dewalt d26451 type 1 random orbital sander. why does this sander jump around on the material and feel like it's fighting me all the time instead of sanding smooth and easy?


I have the same problem with a Porter Cable orbital sander I recently purchased. Whats happening is the sander is catching the edge of the board you're trying to sand and jerking back and forth as the sander base spins. It seems that if the board your're sanding is at least as wide as the sander base, the problem goes away, which does little good because there will be many times I we'll need to sand wood that is less in size. But you may try using a lesser grit sandpaper and see if that alleviates the problem somewhat.

Orbital sander doesnt orbit!


Never start the Sander without first placing it against the surface to be sanded. In free air the Sander will not osolate.

Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander rotates but does not "orbit"


Just solved my problem with Porter Cable 333 orbital sander which just groaned. I thought the worst. I carefully took it apart on the garage floor and immediately suspected it needed lubrication as the motor turned hard. I used my flexible long plastic tube lubrication and put some on the bottom bearing shaft the best I could. I worked it around and around. I began to feel it turning easier. I applied more oil and kept moving and it became completely free. I put a drop on the top bearing even though it was loose. I put it all back together and it works like new. Lesson: do not look for the worst when a tool quits. Suspect the culprit to be lack of lubrication!!!
