  1. Hi I need some help with a Porter-Cable orbital sander 382... I took it apart to clean it and forgot to take a picture of the top and now I can't figure out how the wires go... Exactly just one of the wires I cannot figure out how it goes it doesn't seem like it will go the route I wanted to or maybe I'm trying to plug it into the wrong spot I can't find a picture at the top of the sander on the internet... So someone can help me with either a picture or some kind of diagram to show how the wires loop around the plastic and where they plug into... I will include a picture of what it looks like now and maybe somebody can just explain what I'm doing wrong it's the white wire on the right that is messing me up....does it plug into next to the switch or next to where the cord goes into?? please help thank you
  2. Hi, I bought a DeWalt Random Orbital sander as in the pictures from the authorized agent here in Sri Lanka (Delmege Forsyth & Co. Ltd) on 15th September 2016. Model No is D26451. Then I contacted DeWalt about the product and they said that it was manufactured in 2011 and the product is obsolete and a new model is available now. The item I received has wearing marks on the outside indicating that it had been on the shelf for too long. Then I contacted the local agent whom I bought from and they said that even though it was 5 years old there would be no problems since it wasn't used. They said that it is as good as new. Actually I bought this item with a discount. But they have not really mentioned it was old when i bought it. I would really appreciate if you people can give me any advice on this. Is it OK to have this 5 years old tool, which was not used. Will it affect its life time?? please advice. Thanks in advance!

And now the Mspector (inspection camera) and Stick Light! Next up, the Sander / Polisher: First up, the 3/8" Ratchet!
  4. I think I'm in love... Great dust control and has made short work of everything that I've thrown at it thus far. It makes my old palm sander cry out of sheer inadequacy.

  6. Looking at getting a Bosch 2.5amp orbital sander. How much of an improvement is it using a dedicated sander over something like an oscillating tool (Fein Multimaster) and/or hand sanding?
  7. Hey folks, This is a seriously handy tool! What do you think?
