Orbital Sander question


Colin

Recommended Posts

Hi - I 'll start by saying I am a rookie regarding power tools.    I just received a DieWalt DWE6423 orbital sander thru Amazon.    I attached a disc

and turned the tool on.  The motor sounds like it is running normally yet the disc is barely turning (about once per second).   I removed the pad

and the belt is not broken yet it also rotates at that slow speed.  Am I missing something obvious? Does the tool require pressure against a work

piece before the disc attains to correct speed?

 

Thanks!

 

Colin
