SOURCE: My Black & Decker mouse is now making a louder

possibly a bearing is seizing up causing the motor to slow down and therefore less vibration. You can try Dewaltservicenet.com for a breakdown or to find a repair center.

SOURCE: I sanded with my B&D Mouse Sander for an hour

I have had two Black & Decker mouse sanders. The first one died on mie after a respectable time so I decided to buy a new one (they're relatively cheap)

Now my second Mouse is also starting to rattle, just like the first one. So I took it apart and I now know some weak points of this machine:

1. The motor is a small one and does not really cool itself that good. After sanding for an hour, the poorly designed plastic fan at the bottom will deform because of the heat which causes more problems.

2. the bottom of the mouse is attached to the body by three 'hinges'. I know you;re not supposed to, but when you're sanding for an hour, you start to press the Mouse a bit more because you want some @#$ progress on your sanding work. This causes the hinges to loosen up. This is actually the ratttling sound you hear when you're mouse starts giving up.

So why has the Mouse gotten it's longest period after the rattling starts? Because of this the alignment of the mouse's sanding foot is not 100%. This means: Extra friction, extra heat: engine dies.

You can prolong the life a bit though:

When the rattling starts:
Take it apart and fill up the rear hinges by adding material on top of the hinge so the foot is aligned again. The Mouse sounds a lot better I can tell you. For me this meant a mm of metal on top of the rear hinges.

When you have it apart: clean the Mouse, get rid of the dust. The machine is very simple. You just need to loosen four screws and have a brush + vacuum cleaner ready.

good luck!

Palm sander not vibrating


Only real way to find out what is wrong is to open it up on this one. They are mostly plastic parts and you will probably find the broken part or where a gear is worn out.

Base has come loose on one side exposing a small white plastic foot and is making a louder noise when turned on. Is there any way I can tighten it up?


I don't have a solution yet, but the probable cause of the noise and vibration is that the white rubber post that suports the sanding plate is broken. To get it out means totally dismantling the sander (gives you a chance to clean it out as well) to get the offending post(s) out. Two are broken on mine, the back two.


The next problem is to find a supplier of these posts as they are not on the spare parts list from B&D, and so far I have found no other supplier.


Come on B&D, this is a wear part. Add it to the current restricted list of spares.

the velcro piece should have a removeable or i should say a peel off paper like a sticker and then stick the velcro to the base off sander if it was not on when you got it. it was not put on at the factory cause they give you the option of using stick on sheat of sandpaper or hook & loop (velcro).

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.

Hand sander stops spinning once placed on item to be sanded


This sander has a brake pad that is supposed to stop the rotation when the sander is not actually in use. It sounds like it's malfunctioning.
The only other thing I can think could be a cause of what you describe is an improperly assembled sanding base. Have you changed out the base, and if so, were you sure to properly align the replaced base on the machine before you tightened the allen screw?
If you're not comfortable disassembling a tool that is still under warranty ( I think it's two years for that one), I would recommend finding a Dewalt service center and taking it in for a factory service call.

How to remove round sander for iron shaped one


You need to remove the allen head cap screw in the center of the base, then remove the washer, and pull the base straight down off the sander. If you can't get it to pull off, try gently rocking it a little as you exert pressure to pull it off.

Random orbit sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a random orbit sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. B)
- Place the sanding base (3) onto the spindle (10).
- Place the washer (7) onto the spindle.
- Insert the Allen screw (8) into the screw hole in the spindle.
- Tighten the Allen screw using the Allen key (9) supplied.
- To remove the sanding base, remove the Allen screw (8) and washer (7).
Fitting sanding sheets (fig. C)
- Hold the tool with the sanding base (3) facing upwards.
- Place the sanding sheet (11) onto the sanding base (3). The holes in the sheet do not need
to line up with the holes in the base.
Large detail sanding base
With this sanding base, you can use the tool as a detail sander or an orbital sander.
Fitting and removing the sanding base (fig. D & E)
For detail sanding, the pointed end should face forward as in fig. D. For sanding large areas,
the pointed end should face to the back as in fig. E.
- Place the sanding base (12) onto the spindle (10). Make sure that the legs of the base
locate into the tool.
- Place the washer (7) onto the spindle.
- Insert the Allen screw (8) into the screw hole in the spindle.
- Tighten the Allen screw using the Allen key (9) supplied.
