    Norton 68287 Item 162959 5" Random Orbital Palm Sander fails

    I do not recommend this tool. I have only had it for 5 months and used it lightly (I build small boxes). Recently, while trying to refinish a small desk, the foam velcro pad tore free of the the composite disc driven by the motor and flew across the room. I searched online and could not find one source of replacement parts for Norton sanders. All other brands list this as a consumable item and make the part available. Finally I glued the foam pad back onto the driving disc with polyurethane glue (Gorilla Glue). This held well and I tried to continue the job. Then, while continuing to sand, the pad would slow down and not spin up to speed and power. I was completely unable to use the tool at all. I don't see a warranty listed in the description for this tool so will have to follow up to see what resolution it is. I thought the Norton name (famous in industry for abrasives) would indicate quality. I took a chance as I have never seen Norton hand-held power tools on the market before. I made a big mistake.
