Does that sander have the “belt” that controls the speed of the unit? I’ve had that go bad on my Porter Cable ros.
That can cause the jumping you’re having.

I don’t know, I’ll have to check that out, when I had it apart I did not see a belt though.

I have looked at the parts list and can’t find a belt, still looking for solution.

from what I can tell looking at parts list it is a brake pad that must be worn that causes the problem. I will order one and see if that fixes it.

I had an older PC ROS that did that. I still have donuts in a couple of projects from that POS. I’ve found newer sanders from Bosch and Makita perform better, but while I still used that one placing it on the work surface and giving it a two-handed grip before powering on eliminated the problem.

Have your say...
