Belt sanders: Belt sanders are useful for removing large quantities of wood stock quickly. They are generally used for rough sanding before fine finishing with a smaller sander. Palm sanders: Palm sanders are ultra-portable and useful for finishing small projects. Orbit sanders: Orbit sanders are usually more heavy-duty than palm sanders and appropriate for larger projects.

Please help me find a free owners manual for my porter cable 352vs belt sander


The ServiceNet site has the manual for most Porter Cable power tools here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/ . The 352VS documentation is here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/Detail/352VS . Look in the right hand column for the Instruction Manual; you'll see an option to download a PDF or have the manual sent by email. However, you need to look at the sander and attempt to find the Type number. This will be on the label with the model and serial number. There are 7 different belt sanders that were released with the 352VS model number. Use this number to get the details for your sander. The direct link to the manual for the Type 1 version, today, is http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=EnA00111.pdf&productId=55856&productType=12187&documentId=32863&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/Porter-Cable/EnA00111.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Looking for the manual,my paper slip off as soon as I start to sand the wood


There are a couple of different types of paper you can use with a sander. One with a sticky back and one that works is like velcro . Sounds like you are using the wrong kind of paper for your machine

I have a MS1000 Black and Decker Cyclone round sander..looking for replacement sanding disc


Hello, W/D here.
Most sanding disc types are available at the larger box hardware stores. They are (sometimes) generic or exact replacements.
I use the "Gator" brand on my B7D sander, and the discs work just fine.
Best regards, --W/D--

Sheets keep coming off during sanding


The sandpaper will come off for one of these reasons: 1. The spring clips are to loose to hold the sandpaper. 2. You are using sandpaper that the paper's either too thick for the clips to hold it or too thin to withstand the work you are putting it through. 3. (Most likely) You are pushing down on the sander too hard while sanding. These types of sanders work by their own weight with only a little help from you.

Sandpaper will not stick to rubber bed bosch


This is generaly due to previous adhesive buildup on the backing pad OR, the face of the backing pad is breaking down and cracking.There are two ways to handle this. You can try scrubing the crud off the pad (I wouldn't) or, you can get a new backing pad for your sander. At this point, you might want to go with a velcro type pad or hook and loop as they call it (cleaner and no goop). Check your local home depot for pads. If you cannot find one, I would suggest you call Klingspor abrasives Co. They have area reps all over the United States. I know, as I used to be one of them.They carry,.. and will send you pads via UPS. Just make sure you don't try to put a 6in pad on a 5in sander or vice-versa as the pads are weight-mated to the sanders. If you do, you will burn up the motor in your sander rather quickly.

Sander failure when using honda generator


If you are using a 220 volt 4 hp floor sander, which is 95% of all floor sanders. you CANNOT use a generator less than a 25KV, which is about the size of a van. All Floor sanders draw over 80 amps at start up and during floor sanding all sanders run around 25 amps. If your motor is a Capactor style motor you can do detrimental damage to the motor. Many of my customers have done it in the past.

Tool is cracked, is it PVC or another type of plastic


I dont know what kind of plastic these sanders are made of. Your best bet is just to try a strong 2 part epoxy. If the epoxy doesn't bond then you should be able to just scrape the glue off and try something else.
