The sander is a replacement for a Ryobi that I had for many years. Grizzly's version is exactly what I need.
However, When I failed to install the base washer, I damaged the plastic dust cover. I called your tech center for advice, spoke to Greg (I think that was his name.) Asked if it would be safe to run the sander without the dust cover, concerned about dust getting into the machine. He said that it would be OK to run it, provided I had adequate vacuum system, but suggested that replacement of the dust cover would be best. A gasket replacement would also be advisable, but he had none in stock at that point. Although I had readily admitted that the damage was completely my fault, he generously offered to send me the small part without charge. As a longtime customer of Grizzly, I replied that this is exactly why I like to do business with you. That was several weeks ago, and it has not arrived to date. The dust cover is Part #P0739009
