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.

Sand paper will not stay on model 505 and i have replaced the springs with new ones?


You may need to replace the clamps too. I always replaced the clamps and springs as a set. And make sure the pad is in good shape. Here is the parts diagram.

Extreme Vibration in my Porter Cable (Rockwell) 330 Sander


I also have had this problem and I found that if I hold the unit tightly and squeeze the plastic housing the RPM's will stabilize as the unit warms up. Best fix is to replace the rubber isolators that prevent vibrations from the motor from reaching the plastic housing. The isolators have become hard through age or very cold temperatures.
I read somewhere that keeping the sander stored in a warm room can also help because when the rubber is very cold it becomes hard.

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 330 SANDER, IT VIBRATES SO MUCH IT IS UNCOMFOORTABLE TO HOLD. IF I REPLACE THE RUBBER POSTS WILL THIS SOLVE THE PROBLEM? IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?


Not sure if this will work for you, but I had the same problem with my 330, it vibrated so much it felt like I was being electrocuted. I took the four screws holding the pad off and blew compressed air inside the sander to remove all the sawdust. Screwed the pad back on and now it works fine. Mine was only 5 years old with very little use.

Getting lower bearing 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

Need help disassembling Porter Cable random orbit sander


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
