I followed the suggestion and gently pried up on both side with a couple of screw drivers. After a few frustrating minutes it popped off.

There is a screw holding the pulley on remove it and what I would do is take 2 screwdrivers and gently pry up from either side, The bearing is generally a loose press fit. You might want to take a look at a breakdown at Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number so you can see what it looks like. Good luck

Porter Cable random Orbital Sander (Quicksand) Model 333, Double insulated When sanding, it stops and starts, it sounds as thogh it is stuck and then gets going for a short while


Hi, Sanders are prone to getting lots and lots of dust inside the unit. The cooling fan makes this problem inevitable. The only way to fix this is to take it apart and and blast it with a pressurized air tool. Hopefully this will bring back some life to your sander. The effectiveness of this procedure is dependent on how well you can remove all of the dust. hope this helps.

How do you replace bearings on a porter cable 505 sander?


First I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the site towards the bottom type in your model number. I found breakdown on page 8 unless it comes up faster. You will need a bearing puller or something similar because they are pressed on. It is really not that hard with the proper tools. Let me know and if I have answered your question would you please rate this response accordingly and Thank you.

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!!!

I have a porter cable 5" ros that is not orbiting


If it is not orbiting I would look at the bearing in the eccentric under the pad to make sure not seized up or other problem. Also look at the screw holding everything together. Let me know with the exact model number and brand if still a problem and I will dig deeper into this.
