I can't find anything on Clarke's website for this tool. But if you have the switch out I would take it to a local repair facility or electrical supply house and have them match it up. There is usually nothing that special about the switches. Let me know if you cant and I will try and dig deeper.

Clarke plate sander vs drum for a floor that only needs


drum sander leaves chatter marks you must plate these out. belt sander is the best way to go, however it will take longer to just plate than to drum and plate. for light sanding i would start with a 60 grit on the drum, then 80, then 100. plate with 100 screen till chatter free, then final with 150 screen. this is if you intend to go to raw wood.

Where Do I Fill Oil Into My Car Jack?


Usually only oil has to be added if the jack will not pump up, not down. They go down either by added retraction springs or by the weight of what they were lifting.
Anyway, look for a small rubber plug about 1/2" in diameter on the hydraulic unit, lay the unit on it's side so when the rubber plug is removed the oil won't run out. Once you remove the plug, fill it up with hydraulic jack oil from an auto parts store. Put the plug back in, you may have to work the jack to purge air bubbles, by pumping it up and down a few times.

Check the bearings on the front drum. If you can remove the side cover and take off the 2 belts spin the drum by hand. It should spin freely. If it doesn,t the bearings may be going bad. Also check to see if the dust bag is inflating. There may be something plugged up in the exhaust tube leading to the bag.

what is the condition of the felt pad on the driver?? The sander should not be that hard, usually you need to lift up or slightly bear down to get the machine to move left or right. Are there any exposed nails in the area you are sanding and check the grit for the sanding conditions

If the drum has the bar clamp with the 3 screws make sure the bar is set so the screws are flush when tightened down. If you reverse the bar clamp the screws will stick up a fraction and cause this grooving in your floor.
