I dont know what kind of plastic these sanders are made of. Your best bet is just to try a strong 2 part epoxy. If the epoxy doesn't bond then you should be able to just scrape the glue off and try something else.

Porter cable 352vs manual


My Porter Cable 352vs Belt Sander was clogged from sanding epoxy, wet wood, something like that. No dust collection at all.
I had to remove 4 screws on the housing, one screw under the front handle and another below the rear handle. The housing came out very easily (with a little wiggle). Pay very close attention to where the position of your plastic fan housing sits. It will only be installed in one spot.

The pdf diagram was not exactly correct on the housing placement.
Once opened, The wood and epoxy were caked in everyplace. I brushed them out and replaced the screws.

Good as new.

Good luck.

Sander Belt keeps slipping off.


what I would do is using compressed air clean the underside as best you can there might be a buildup of dust not allowing the yoke to extend fully, then look at the condition of the rear roller, is should have a crown in the middle, make sure the belt tracking mechanism moves freely and I believe there was a plastic cap over the screw head to push the yoke. If it is not there it might be part of your problem. Lastly make sure if you are using directional belts that they are installed correctly, You can find a breakdown for this tool at Makitatools.com

My belt sander makes a horrible noise.....like it's in need of WD40 I just don't know how or where to oil it.


chances are it does not need oil. I am assuming it is electric, not air. usually the noise is from the brushes either worn or broken.

My DS321 belt sander had the large drive roller(and belt)came off on the first extended use. Looking at an IPB no thrust washers were found either.


I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number and on the next page find the type number for the tool. I took a guess and found 2 thrust washers for the DS321. Let me know if you need more assistance and I will try and help

How many Types of Sanders?


Belt sanders: Belt sanders are useful for removing large quantities of wood stock quickly. They are generally used for rough sanding before fine finishing with a smaller sander. Palm sanders: Palm sanders are ultra-portable and useful for finishing small projects. Orbit sanders: Orbit sanders are usually more heavy-duty than palm sanders and appropriate for larger projects.
