Question about Porter Cable Porter-Cable Variable Speed Random-Orbit Sander , Model #7336

1 Answer

Wobble in disk

I am a long time owner of Porter cable products. I am 64 years old and I still have and use my Porter cable Jig saw I was given when I was 14. I also have sander that is at least 30 years old, survived a flood in my shop and still works great.

My sander fell off my bench when I inadvertently hit the power cord and fell to the floor. The disk now wobbles when the sander is on. Is this repairable and if so, does it make sense to repair or do i have to purchase a new one? If it is repairable,can you give me any idea of the cost.

Thank you
Paul Landsman

Please help me find a free owners manual for my porter cable 352vs belt sander


The ServiceNet site has the manual for most Porter Cable power tools here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/ . The 352VS documentation is here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/Detail/352VS . Look in the right hand column for the Instruction Manual; you'll see an option to download a PDF or have the manual sent by email. However, you need to look at the sander and attempt to find the Type number. This will be on the label with the model and serial number. There are 7 different belt sanders that were released with the 352VS model number. Use this number to get the details for your sander. The direct link to the manual for the Type 1 version, today, is http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=EnA00111.pdf&productId=55856&productType=12187&documentId=32863&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/Porter-Cable/EnA00111.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a black and decker BR300 that I've had the same problem with.I don't know if yours is caused by the same things but what I found was that the vacumn system on mine was not sealed up good enough and too much dust was getting around motor cooling fins. Unfortunatly on mine by the time I figured this out it had frayed the drive belt which caused some small strands to wrap around drive gears and mostly trashed the motor. Hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

Sand paper keeps slipping help


I don't know what type of sander you are speaking about it just says generic ALL PORTER CABLE SANDERS. You got to be a little more specific. If it is a disk sander use 3M disk adhesive. It is a contact cement. spread some on the rubber backing disk with your hand, let dry then apply the sanding disk. After the disk is clogged, peel it off and apply another disk. when the adhesive won't hold anymore disks, re-apply the adhesive.
