Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

How do I determine whether it is the switch or the capacitor that is the problem on my Delta sander model # 31-080? These are both expensive parts and together would cost more than 1/2 of the retail price I paid, so I want to know how to test them.

If you can get at the connections for the switch you can do a continuity test on the switch. If the switch has continuity when on then it's most likely good.

Should I buy an old Delta sanding Center? Is it wise to buy an older Delta sanding center 31-730F Not all parts are still available. They want $250.00 for the sander

If it's the kind with a round disk sander and a wide belt sander, as far as I know belts and disks are still available. There is not much else to wear out. Make sure you test it before purchase.
