A long time ago, I had a PC 352 Belt sander. It was stolen years and years ago. Today, I buy a brand new one, as I missed that old belt sander. Well, it looks so much different, and the dust collection contraption has changed. There is no longer an elbow that connects to the dust bag. I use my sander outside 99% of the time and hate having the bag attached. Now I haven’t used this new one yet, but I will assume it will pelt you with dust when you look at it, where my old one you could deflect it to the side with the old system elbow. I do not see an elbow accessorie from PC. How has anyone here short of just putting some tape over the dust ejection port dealt with this?

if you block the dust port, the dust will collect inside the sander in the vicinity of the right hand motor bearing. not a good thing….call your DW service center and tell them you have a type 5 or lower 352…the elbow should still be in the system. The part number is 877694. If not contact me, I have a few left.One off of the old PC mag saw will work as well.

-- One of these hammers oughta fix that...

I figured blocking the dust port would adversely effect something. I have a local Dewalt Center here that I hope has some! Thanks for the reply.

Update :Just ordered it from my local dewalt service center. Should of asked though if the inside diameter of the old 352 dust ejection hole was the same as my new type 6 one for sure? No matter, only $9.

BTW, I think you gave me the saw elbow part #, but Im gonna assume they are the same part, just with different numbers, unless they are bent at differnt angles?

Have your say...
