    Really has, you search for things and find the EXACT same item over and over under various different names and review counts. It`s bad enough Amazon peppers your searches with stuff you clearly didn`t ask for it just creates a mess of confusion. I`d go shop somewhere else but they kind of killed nearly everybody off. I used to love Newegg as my 100% go to for computer stuff but even it`s filled with a mess of countless resellers. I`m sure this is a good model for all the various businesses but it sure makes me want to only purchase from places like PBMG where I`m going one vendor to buy something that they say is/isn`t in stock.

    I was able to get a pair of Billís Khakis shorts from TJ Maxx of all places and they were quite cheaper than the usual Polo I buy

    gorram -
    Exactly !!! Amazon, (couldn`t have picked a better name) has taken over and is ruining it now..
    What I have figured out is all those "different" names are going to be for sure, China products.. And the really bad usage of the english language is also warning for me.. It appears that as long as the gate is wide open, this will only get worse..

    I always used to shop at Newegg also !! They used to have really great deals on Definitive Technology Speakers.. It is now taken on the China model of internet sales..

    And all the former American brand names, made in America products are now still using the American name, but guess where the product is being made now?
    I just hope I/we can survive this..

    Astouffer512- I`m just glad you got it back. I`m betting that he`s just unfamiliar with its limitations...when I first got mine I assumed it was broken since it was so...different...compared to my Cyclo.

    Did the video link I posted work to view?

    Did you see anything wrong with the functioning of the DA?

    Re: DA not spinning?

    Astouffer512- Sorry, the PC I`m currently on isn`t properly capable of playing it (no reflection on your link/etc. it`s my problem ). But I figure I can imagine, and when *you* say it`s working fine, and posting pix in evidence of that, I`m gonna take your word for it If it were messed up, I`m utterly confident that you`d know.

    Andrew,
    Thank you and your son for this video.
    I watched it, I see nothing wrong with the machine, it sounds exactly like any other Porter Cable, I could see the pad random orbiting, I say the machine is fine.
    Think this may have been User Error..

    Did you have an opportunity to take the wrench, remove the Backing Plate, and check to see the counterweight is tightly attached? I would always check that at least once a year..

    The panel you did looks great ! Very glossy and clear..
    Thank you for doing this.
    Dan F

    Video worked fine. Machine seems to be operating as it should. I`m assuming on higher speeds the rotation is `faster` than in the video.

    Iíll assume it runs faster at higher speeds. Since I had a polishing pad on and I was just trying to see if it worked it only ran it at 3 1/2.
