    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    I will add to my PC 7336 story...

    I have a neighbor who occasionally sands wood panels. He comes down and asks to borrow my 20 year old PC. He's done that probably 8-10 times since I've owned that machine.

    He returns it and it's riddled with sawdust. I give it a thorough, case off cleaning, lube things up again and it goes right back to work as my 3" buffer and LSP applier!

    Same here, I use it with 3" pads only, use Flex with larger pads. The PC works great w/ smaller pads.

    The first time I am seeing someone else besides me with a 7335.

    A rotary and a DA is a good combination.

    Always. 6 years and no problems. No reason to change.

    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    I got my 7424 (Non XP) back in 2002. I replaced the power cord this summer. Other than that it's been working great (knock on wood).

    With it, I am still able to get results like this:

    The PC's are little tanks.

    If you don't have any heavy correction to do, or don't mind taking a little more time, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the PC's.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    I still have mine (7424XP), el minto condition, and no intentions of selling, or trading. It sits in its comfy dedicated Stanley Tool Box, with all goodies on hand, a few backing plates, spare backing plate washers, and the handle if I ever need it.

    This tool, which I probably bought on sale here countless moons ago (about 80), was worth every cent.

    I destroyed the original 6" foam pad on the myriad of clutch screws on my cargo trailer, but bought another, and bought a bunch of correct fitting MF Bonnets, that I can then use that Pad with Bonnets on board like an old Waxcoa-Craftsman Waxer.

    Makes taking off waxes a breeze, even durable pastes.
