What is happening to my Dewalt DW421 spinning fast, but no random orbiting motion.

Probably need to replace bearing 6202. I took mine apart, dissambled the retainer and used PB Blaster on the bearing. It seems to be a short term fix. At least it's not operating at hyper speed anymore. Long term, I probably need to replace the bearing and maybe a new lower retainer if I can't press the bearing out.

Hi can I use my Dewalt polisher and change to sandpapper if so what parts will i need for instance glue new flexable pad sticky 220 papper can you please elaberate a little what in going to need thanx ...

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 have a Dewalt sander I am using for wet sanding on a boat hull. I have already burned one sander out do to moisture I figure is there a way to protect the new sander from this happening again I am...

Impossible not to get water in the bearings and motor. It is vibrating too fast. You need air sander. Or sand dry, then wet sand the primer by hand.
