The local hardware store has brushes in all different sizes in a box, next to the switches, fuses, plugs, cords, tool type stuff. They are standard sizes, should be able to find them no problem. Hope this helps.

How do I turn it on


Should be a switch on the bottom near where the cord goes in. If not then it must be an older model. Providing more information results in more thorough and accurate answers. If that switch does not turn the sander on then something in the electrical circuit is damaged, possible a broken switch. They are replaceable with just a little mechanical skill.

Ihave replaced the brushes on my 9404 belt sander and it is running as if it still needs the brushes changing. Any ideaS?


If there is excess sparking from the brushes then the armature is shorted. Also a bad field can make a tool run slow.

I just aquired a used Skil Model 409 orbital sander and am having trouble inserting the paper. Is there a technique peculiar to this machine that?


Sorry, I was missing that part. You got it right, though. three hands is the answer. Orrr, you could go get some nice sticky back papers and cheat. They come in a variety of sizes or can be cut from full sheets. what you have there is a good sander to use while you figure out what kind of sander you want:)

Brushes on my sander are wearing out within 10mins


the armature could be the problem, when you replace them do you notice a lot of arcing around the commutator, it might be bad or just need to have the surface cleaned. let me know.

CLEANING SANDER BUSHINGS


It's usually not the brushes but the commutator that needs cleaned. The commutator is the surface the brushes ride on. Go to Walgreens and buy a multi-surface nail file, one of the soft ones that are about 3/4" square with different colors for different grits. Don't start at the coarse grit!! Start at the medium grit and lightly drag it over each section in a smooth arcing motion, when the commutator surface is shiny it's clean, then replace the brushes with new ones.

Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the center of the page under needing parts type in your tool model number it will take you to another page and scroll down to the type 1 or 2 and click on it. It will bring up an exploded view of this tool. Why do you think that you need brushes? usually I have to replace the bearings and the brushes are pretty durable. Let me know if I can help further
