Dan, I don’t know if your P.C is as old as my ancient model 333, but when I replaced it with a Makita BO5041 I was blown away by the difference in performance. Even just using the little dust collector bag on it (I hate trying to manage a hose while I do finish work), it is close to dust free. That little bag fills up quickly.

Another thing I did that was a game changer was switching to Mirka Abranet disks. Those things last forever and leave a perfect finish. My local woodworking supply had a 25% off sale on boxes of 50 when you bought 5. I did a mix of grits, and with 50/box, it’s a several year supply.
