    Q:The Dewalt Product Expert states that the correct replacement pad for this sander is part #N324219. Where can I get it? HD does not appear to have it available. So HD is selling another product without offering the necessary parts to use it? Return time.

    Answer This Question

    A:  So, Dewalt Product Expert, you think I should jump through a few more hoops to be able to use your product rather than require your dealer(HD) to stock routine replacement parts? I don't think so. It's going back for a full return in its current condition

    by|Sep 15, 2022

      A:  Thanks DV.... do you know where this Powertec pad might be available? HD online doesn't appear to have it. I'd like to keep the sander if these are readily available, otherwise it's useless and I need to return it.

      by|Sep 19, 2022

        A:  The POWERTEC brand 5” 8 hole discs are a direct fit.

                    easy to use
                    I purchased this to make sanding hardwood easier.... and... just wow. I have wondered why I didn't purchase one before now, this sander made the job quick, easy, cleaner, and did I mention easier? I was using an old belt sander, and an old finish sander before I decided to purchase this. By far the easiest and most effective tool to sand my wood floors, but I also use this to sand and smooth metal.

                      Non orbital disk sander
                      This sander is non orbital, 5” hook and loop disk, and variable speed brute. It has a long cord and an effective dust port. I bought this to sand live edge boards and to get the lines out of my planed boards caused by my hellix planer head. It takes a little getting used to but once I did I cut my sanding time in half. I love it and recommend it.

                        Love this sander, the variable speed on the trigger can’t be underrated! Has the power to carve heavier wood such as oak but on a low setting and a gentle touch can polish even the lightest wood.

                        First time with DEWALT and last
                        I bought this sander a couple weeks ago and it’s awful! Leaves rings on my projects which I then have to fix, wasting my time. Dust is everywhere.. the attachment is useless.
