A: No, the DWE6401DS intended use are: wood, metal, fiberglass, plastics and paint.
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
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.
A: The POWERTEC brand 5” 8 hole discs are a direct fit.
A: Yes, N324219 is the correct part number for the pad for model number DWE6401DS. Please contact us at email@example.com so we may assist you further.
