We are all aware of the "switch off" or "un plug" rules for the shop and yesterday I had a reminder of why that rule is important. I had finished using a P-C random orbit sander and laid it aside, a couple feet from where I was working on a piece. About a minute or more later it suddently STARTED UP and jumped off the bench! I was flabbergasted to say the least. In this case there was no damage and no injury,but what if......
I own another sander, same model etc. that I tossed in a corner because it started acting up and then just QUIT, would not turn on or off etc.
Now I am thinking there may be a problem with that particular switch. I know P-Cable would never admit it so I won't even ask.
Just thought I'd share this little incident with you as a reminder that it never hurts to power stuff OFF sometimes.
