I'm not sure I understand your question, but I'll give it a go.

The DW421 is a sander already. If you want to change it to a polisher, you can buy polishing pads to go on it.
If you have a Dewalt polisher and want to convert to a sander, you can buy sanding disks to fit your polisher. They are installed on the spindle and I believe you can get a backing pad for it also.

Hope that helps

I already changed the needle. but it will not sew since I used that sticky Velcro strip.


The glue from the velcro is stuck on the interior of your machine and interfering with its moving parts. You will need to clean/remove the velcro adhesive. Perhaps rubbing alcohol, etc., but be very careful because chemicals can damage the machine parts. In the future, do NOT sew anything with adhesive.

Velcro pad that the sandpaper is fixed to has come off the plate. What's the best glue to use to re-stick the pad with?


You may try a two part epoxy, or gorilla glue. Let dry for a day or two. Sometimes 3m spray adhesive also works. Let tack before sticking together though.

The base has lost its stickiness and no longer holds the velcro pad that you attach the sandpaper to.


I had same problem. Go to the hardware store and buy some Velcro strips. One side has adhesive, just put that side on the mouse. I had to put several strips on then cut around the shape of the mouse. Sandpaper for the mouse sticks to it great. Just be careful when pulling the used sandpaper back off that you don't tear off the Velcro. I threw that little pad away that was originally on the mouse.

Tivoli radio sticky case


I have the yellow songbook and it was so sticky and dirty after only a couple of years. I only use it inside, so I removed the sticky coating with nail polish remover and a ton of cotton balls. It worked really well on the yellow one - the finish is a little dull so it matches how it looked when it was new. And it's so clean now!

My dewalt polisher will doesnt turn on when connected to outlet?


I would check the brushes. These are small carbon blocks that transfer the electricity to the armature and are usually easily accessible from outside the tool. Look for two round disk like caps with a screw slot. Undo the caps and take out the brush and you may find it is worn to the limit.

My push button pad, on a Pride Jet 3 Ultra, is ripped open, where can I buy repair parts for this controller? I need to buy a new pad and glue it down.


You need a quick-drying, and FLEXIBLE adhesive to fix your keypad. Surebonder 9001 is one that I use. Clean the surface around the torn area with 100% acetone (fingernail polish remover...make sure it is 100%). Wait a minute to let it dry, then apply the adhesive. Let it set and you are good to go.
