Questions & Answers

Does it vibrates or spin?

Asked by Enila May 12, 2021
1
Answer

Actually it does both. The round sanding pad enables it to move much differently than an orbital sander. They have two different movements. First, the disc orbits in tiny circles, just like an orbital sander. This causes the vibration. But it also turns at the same time. If you’re having trouble visualizing this motion, this might help. As the Earth orbits around the sun, it also spins.

Can you use it to sand down liquid nail and wallpaper glue?

Asked by Vam May 9, 2021

Answers

Given the proper "grit" of sandpaper -- 80 grit or lower. Using a new DeWalt, use a vacuum to pick up most of the dust --- DeWalt sells an adapter for about $25.00 to make the sander compatible to most shop vacuums. Otherwise you will need to purchase a vacuum that will accept a 1 3/4" hose end (DeWalt, Craftsman exclusive for $4-5 hundred dollars -- In addition always wear a dust mask.

Can 5 hole sand disc fit

Asked by Ah December 9, 2020

Answers

Not very well. It is a standard 8-hole pattern. Some of the discs with a variety of holes would work, but I've always had the best luck with 8-hole discs.

Is this a finishing sander could you sand the side of your with it for paint.

Asked by Mike December 2, 2020

Answers

Side of what? more than likely the answer is yes!

How many speed settings does it have? What are the RPM’s?

Asked by BK November 12, 2020
1
Answer

6 speeds, 8000 to 12000 OPM. Sander is fabulous for finishing work but I use it for everything.

Polisher?

Asked by Pete October 21, 2020
1
Answer

I doubt it would work as a polisher. The rpm, in my opinion, is not sufficient to polish the finish.

Will this work with a festool shop vac? or know what adapters are needed?

Asked by lilpp September 22, 2020
2
Answers

DeWalt - on their website - offer an adapter for about $25. For me, this makes the sander cost $100. Not a good value.

Will this clean a heavy laminated desk top?

Asked by Mike September 19, 2020
1
Answer

This tool is a workhorse. I sanded a 25x15 wood deck without any drag. I am not sure about a laminate top but if any orbital sander can handle it this one can.

My old DeWalt sander finally quit after about 15 years. I've been doing a lot more woodworking lately, so I'm not surprised. When the time came to choose a replacement, I didn't have to think long. Got another DeWalt. It's improved! The handle is better - my had doesn't get as tired during long sanding stints. It has variable speed, so you can slow it down when you need to. The internal fan that blows the sawdust into the attached dust bag seems to work better as well. Overall, it's a good sander if you don't need cordless (I haven't needed a cordless sander yet, so just got this.)

End Cap Broke in less than a week light use
I purchased this product a few weeks ago and deeply regret doing so. To keep this simple, the end cap, which holds the sand pad in place broke. I have now spent an extra $40 to get the replacement part online. This part, by the way, is not easy to find in stores. I'm now waiting for the new parts. Meanwhile, I'm unable to complete my project and have spent more than 50% of the cost of this product on replacement parts in just a few short weeks of ownership and very light use.

By buddy recommended this sander. I am old school with these tools but recently started getting back in on the woodwork after gathering my late fathers machines together. I really like the bag for the dust, great new technology. The hook and loop over spray adhesive is a great idea so I tossed two older sanders in the trash and bought this little guy.

Great Tool
Great for restoring hardwood floors, it took a little elbow grease since my floor is 80 years old, but it got the job done. I just wish I had taken before pictures. I'm doing the stairs next.

Great sander
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The sander is one of the best I have used. It keeps the vibrations to a minimum and when equipped with a vacuum then it does a great job at picking up dust. My biggest complaint is that the dust port has a proprietary attachment which makes it hard to connect a hole unless you have the DeWalt vacuum system. I had to buy some rubber tubing to connect it to my vacuum.
