Normally when the air will not drive the tool, it is because 1- the tool is rusted up inside, 2- there is no lubrication of the moving parts - which can be remedied by putting something like WD40 in the inlet with the air switch open, 3- the drive parts are broken or worn out, 4- not enough air volume/pressure to run the sander.
You probably need to spray some lube as above & see if that will get it to work. Also turn the sander part by hand. Rick

Hello I have a compressor and my electric orbital sander has finally gone legs up. My question is if I get an air sander primarily for sanding wood is a straight line the best sort to get or are the...


I work in a wood working shop and we use orbitals on everything. You still will still sand with nice even strokes with the grain. It leaves a great finish. They are nice, light, and easy to use! They do use a lot of air though, so make sure your air compressor can handle the one you buy. If you compressor is constantly running you might have to take breaks so you do not burn it up. enjoy!

Have an 80 Gal. 2 stage compressor outside, below freezing temps with 100% humidity. Running 2 DA's, they keep losing air pressure inside the DA's, hose pressure is good but DA will not let air past the...


Mark,

First bring that compressor in from the cold. Any water it collects in the tank is freezing and reducing the volume of air it can hold.
Second, it sounds like water is getting to the DA and freezing at the inlet. Will also be solved by bringing the compressor inside.
Third, put the filters at least 25 feet from the compressor if possible. And make sure all lines from the compressor to the outlets are running a little up hill. This way any water that gets in the pipes will run back toward the compressor
Fourth, At each station have at least 4 inches of pipe below the fitting with valve on the bottom. This way any moisture that gets to the end of the pipe has someplace else to go rather than the air tool.

This will not only make your tools run better but they will last a lot longer.

AIR VOLUME REQUIRED


You need to look at the tool cfm requirements because they are posted on the package or usually in the ads. Your compressor will run the sander, just how long at a time will depend upon your tool's cfm. Rick

As soon as i apply my sander to the surface it stops sanding


hi a major problem with pneumatic tools is that nobody ever seems to oil them! try droping tool oil or a light machine oil down the air inlet and leave over night and then run the tool on full ,if this doesnt work then strip the tool and clean and make sure that the blade sealing surfaces are good
hope this helps ian

Air Sander Guide


# Ensure that sanding belts are not too tight or too loose. Never operate a sanding disk if the paper is loose. # Use the correct grade of abrasive material for the job. # Ensure that the distance between a circular sander and the edge of the table is not greater than 1/4 inch. # Do not push materials against sanders with excessive force. # Sand only on the downstroke side of a disk sander. # Do not hold small pieces by hand. Use a jig for pieces that are difficult to hold securely

You can add different sanding discs to an orbital air sander to ensure that it is properly set up for a huge variety of different jobs. From heavy duty sanding paper for tough jobs through to buffing cloths in order to get a final polished finish at the end of the job. With most orbital air sanders, changing the disc takes just a few seconds, allowing you to get a variety of jobs done a lot quicker.
