  • R2600 runs full speed

    I have a R2600 where the pad will only run at full speed. This can be an issue when changing pieces of wood. It makes an arc in the wood. I recently changes the bearing assembly for the pad since it had locked up solid. I thought this would fix the issue but it didn't. The sander has worked great until now, and no I will not shut it off just to change to another piece of wood. I got an answer about this once before that the sander should be started on the wood. I really don't want to have the power switch fail for repeated power switching. When the power is off the pad spins freely with no resistance, so why does the pad spin full speed when off the surface all the time?
