Festool RO 125 leaves scuff marks when sanding


depends how important it is to vacuum the dust, most generic brand sandpaper discs will have different hole placements for the sander and the vacuum cant suck the dust up. if you are getting swirl marks from the edge of the sander, is the disc too small? a generic brand that is slightly larger may work but try and keep the sander flat or the excess disk can cause a little trouble with the finish.

After you factor in drive time, finding the part, waiting at the cashier and gas money I think you'll find it more cost effective to have the part delivered to your door.

Can the platen on DW411 be replaced


Yes it can be replaced. If you go to www.ereplacementparts.com, you can look up your sander and find the parts you need. You can buy the parts there or get the part numbers and search the web for pricing.

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!!!

Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes


exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.

Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off


You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad.  My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly.  If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically.    For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol.  Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin.  When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine.    Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding.  This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup.    For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces  clean!    Good luck and happy sanding!  Michael Mittelsdorf
