Five Porter Cable Quicksand 332s. One is different.
Nope. Not the Khaki one. It’s one of the others.
I have purchased two of these new and have picked up several since on the ‘bay. They are durable and dependable and repairable.
One, however, upon plugging it in, ran faster. Smoother, too, a really sweet motor sound. But alas, it was devilishly hard to control, often leaving scars that had to be resanded carefully. I couldn’t figure out why it sounded so good and sanded so bad!
I read all the fine print, and four are Type II and one, the culprit, is a Type I.
Here’s the question: Did PC rush these to market only to find that the motor ran too well to do a good job?
What’s your interpretation?
