Did someone here address this problem before?
My DeWalt ROS seems to work OK when it's on the wood, but it achieves a
frightening speed with no "load". I thought I read that the fix had
something to do with replacing a "ring", possibly the "dust seal/brake",
but I'm having trouble finding instructions online.
In fact, I've found some discussions online where people seem to think
that behavior is normal. That faction advises starting the sander while
it's on the wood. My experience is limited, but I don't think that's the
way they are supposed to work. If nothing else, you have to remove it
from the work at some point; at which time it quickly accelerates unless
I "stop" it on a piece of scrap.
I just bought a second unit - a second hand, but evidently unused Porter
Cable - that looks essentially identical to the DeWalt except for the
color. That one spins slowly when not under load.
So, has anyone here had (and fixed) that problem?
