Re: Online parts ordering
I also like the Service Net site and have been happy with the prompt service. For future info, the only area that gets confusing is sanders, particularly random orbital types. They have several different categories (ie sanders, random orbital sanders, and orbital sanders) You may have to visit all three to find your brand name and model number.
I also like the feature that you can select an item and add it to your list and then come back to the site to order at a later date. I think they hold a pending order for up to 60 days before they dump it.
You can also use the parts breakdowns to compare two models of a tool to see what the real differences in parts are. I was ale to convert a non vacuum sander to a vacuum sander because the only difference between the model numbers was the vacuum shroud piece itself.
