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

Why the oil will come out from the sander? how many oil drop must regulate the regulator


Oil coming out of the sander indicates that too much oil is flowing into the the supply air. The rule of thumb for oiling an air motor is 1 drop of light machine oil per minute, per 10 cfm of air.

Can i use my dynabrade sander to car polishar


I would not recommend it for that purpose. A polisher has a much SLOWER RPM than a sander and you would probably cause paint damage from burning, secondly the polishing pad might not be rated for this higher RPM.

Im going to buy a compressor ! What is the min scfm comp that will run this tool for small jobs on my car?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Air Tool consumptions are based on 15 seconds per minute (25%) of tool use.

Usage rates refer to the total time that air is flowing through the tool. If your applications result in more extensive usage, calculate air tool requirements as

follows.


(25%) 15 seconds = rated scfm x 1

(50%) 30 seconds = rated scfm x 2

(75%) 45 seconds = rated scfm x 3
(100%) 60 seconds = rated scfm x 4

Your impact wrench is rated a 8 CFM Cubic Feet Per Minute Usage

SCFM is Standard Cubic Feet per Minute (pre-compressed air volume)

I would be more concerned that the plumbing from the compressor tank could support the 8 CFM required by the 1/2" Impact. Remember the Air compressor will recover the pressure loss regardless of size. The only problem your going to have for "small jobs" is if you use too small of an air line to supply the impact wrench you are not going to get the full torque that it will produce to the drive head. In other words... a 1/4" supply line or 1/4 fittings anywhere in the system just isn't going to cut it even at 120 PSI. If you have the patience... a 5 gallon tank compressor that has the output volume required should be all that you need. I have been a mechanic over 4 decades and rarely have to use a 1/2 in impact for very long. Examples of 1/2" vs 3/8" useage. Wheel nuts, crankshaft pulley center bolt, some starters, steering, suspension and rear end parts. Other than that a 3/8" Impact works great.

One other thing you can do if you have an Air-Peen portable tank (with added fittings) is to add that in line with your output hose when your using the impact wrench so that you have longer use times.

I know this does not answer your what SCFM compressor is required question but it will resolve your needs. I just can't see telling someone that is a "small jobs" user to buy a larger compressor when really all they need is more volume for a brief period of time. The re-plumbed 1/2 inch output / in-line Air-Peen tank is a much cheaper and reasonable work around and you can disconnect that tank when your not using the impact wrench.
Lastly... if your inpact wrench has a SMALL male air fitting everything above will be a waste of time. You have to get that volume into the tool without restriction so that the rool will work properly for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dynabrade sander doesn't spin


check the exhaust muffler. or just take it off and see what happens.

there is usually an inlet air adjustment on the palm sander itself one of these will correct your sander.
if not, and your air supply is good. put some air oil in it or even a light weight oil will work.
if none of this is the correct action to get it going. its probably toast!

I ned the internal vein parts.


One of the cool things about the Dynaorbital Spirit sanders is that, they were designed to be the lightest sanders out there (as opposed to the Dynaorbital supreme). This is nice as it keeps hand fatigue to a minimum. Another cool thing about the spirit, is that it was designed to be able to change out the entire drive motor all at once. The drive motor being the rotor with the vanes on it. These motors are available from dynabrade directly. replacing one vane only will tear the sander body up fast. I would recommend you get the replacement motor from them. They can be found here:http://www.dynabrade.com/dyn09/intro/selregmark/index.html

TIP: When replacing the motor, be very careful not to compress the sander body (i.e. bench vice).Dynabrade sells a rubber grip collar for this operation. then you just R and R (remove and replace) the motor and yer' good to go!!

I have 5" Dynabrade Orbital sander that needs a new sanding pad and could probably use a going over at the same time. Who does this work? Cost


You can get new pads at the automotive paint stores in your area. They are not expensive. Most of these wholesalers have a service department that can r&r yours. Hope this helps you, Rick

What's the best air compressor for a car paint job?


Painting requires lots of air! I want my compressor to have a MINIMUM 10 gallons or more capacity and provide 6-7 CFM at 90 PSI. The duty rating should be at least 50%. Many compressor have a label on them showing what uses they are well suited for. Start with the gun, the air requirements are usually printed on the packaging, use those as minimums! Good luck!

Dynorbital 56010 won't spin


Try DW40, Q20 or another penatration flued. It might be that the aluminium oxidized over time and made the surfaces powdery. If there is a rubber seal inside it would be brittle and not doing it's job any more.
