What causes my belt sander to leave black goo on the wood? I keep replacing the sand belt, I do not push the sander into the wood.


Maybe you are burning the wood. If the wood is hard (like oak or maple) and the grit is fine (like 100 or higher) then this can only be avoided by NEVER running it still in one place. Keep the sander moving quickly over the surface. In fact, you should start the sander BEFORE you touch it to the wood, and when you do touch the wood you should be landing it like a little airplane on the runway. As long as you keep the sander oriented with the grain you can move it forward and back as well as side to side. Just keep moving until you lift it off of the wood - this also helps keep the surface flatter. Good luck.

At my work our belt sanders seem to make gauges as we bellt sand coming from the middle of the pad surface. Kind of a circular spot with long tail gauge simalar to the shape of human *****. I have worked...


i believe that is caused from to much pressure on the belt sander. Try letting the weight of the machine do the work and use smooth even passes. If you want it to cut faster try using a heaver grit, and again let the weight of the machine do the work. Hope this helps!

I am sanding down oak boards that i have laminated together for a bar top. no matter what grade of belt i use or how careful i am it is leaving lots of ridges in the wood. never had this happen before


Belt sanders are not good for finish sanding because they will leave ridges, but they are great for removing lots of wood fast and getting you roughed in. Use the belt sande to get your work fairly level then switch to a palm sander to get it smoothed out.

Sanding Belt Slips Badly


Check and see if the pulleys on the sander are not glazed this somtimes will cause the belt to slip. Give them a good cleaning. If this does not help there is a good chance the spring on the belt tensioner is weak and need changed.

Hop this helps

Belt slipping


I have a Ryobi sander with a belt slipping issue as well. The problem seems to be in the design, not on the user end. The drive barrel is made of a semi-hard, non-gripping material. Wood dust becomes a final release agent that breaks any grip that the barrel may have had.
To compound the problem, the more the belt slips the smother the underside becomes allowing for greater slippage.
I now know why this model was the least expensive unit. >.<

Loose sanding belt


Hi, Consult your user manual for the instructions to install a new belt.  Follow these instructions selectively to tighten the belt tension. Here they are....  
CHANGING DRIVE BELT


  Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws
in the center of the pulley cover.
  Remove the cover.
  Raise sanding belt to the vertical sanding position.
  Next, loosen the hex head set screw. Raising the motor
pulley releases the belt tension.
  Remove the old drive belt.
  Fit the new drive belt on the drive pulley first and then on
the motor pulley.
  Test belt tension by squeezing the belt with your fingers.
  Adjust the belt tension with the hex head set screw until
there is about 1/4 in. (6 mm) of give.
  Tighten the belt tension nut securely.
Note: Excessive tightness on the drive belt may cause
increased noise and overload the motor. Excessive
looseness on the drive belt may cause the drive belt to
fail prematurely and make a severe chattering noise.
  Using a phillips head screwdriver, reinstall the pulley cover
and the two phillips head screws. Tighten securely.


Good Luck!  Middles

How many Types of Sanders?


Belt sanders: Belt sanders are useful for removing large quantities of wood stock quickly. They are generally used for rough sanding before fine finishing with a smaller sander. Palm sanders: Palm sanders are ultra-portable and useful for finishing small projects. Orbit sanders: Orbit sanders are usually more heavy-duty than palm sanders and appropriate for larger projects.
