How do I get the wheels to pop back out after changing the sanding belt on my old craftsman belt sander #31511720 model?


The tracking adjuster will tilt one wheel in so's you can start putting the belt on. After it gets about halfway, you will need to adjust that the other way and just bump the switch a bit a few times as you adjust and it'll work its way back on.

I have an old craftsman belt sander that needs oil because the engine has started smoking. I bought the right oil, but can't figure out where to put it in. Help?


Many belt sanders have sealed bearings that are packed with grease at the factory. They require no further lubrication. Sleeve bearings should be lubricated with 30 weight oil or an equivalent after each 10 hours of use.

Only about 2 to 3 drops of oil should be applied to each sleeve bearing. Avoid using too much oil. It can get on the work piece or on the belt and the belt will slip.

The Belt of my craftsman 3x21 sander slowly moves off track.


There is a leveling (screw/knob) on the side of the belt sander. Turn it up and the belt will drift in one direction. Turn it downward and the belt will drift in the opposite direction. play with this leveling screw/knob until you reach a good balance and the belt will stop drifting.

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172


I checked Searspartsdirect.com for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

Craftsman 3x21 plastic front roller needs replacing


Do you know anyone with a metal lathe or that works in a machine shop? If you do ask them if they can make the rollers for you out of metal. Or else find a machine shop and ask them to make you new rollers.

I need manual for Craftsman 315.11720 belt sander


On my model 315.11720 3"x21" Craftsman belt sander to change out sanding belts you push the front roller in until it clicks to lock in its retracted position (a pry bar may help here), switch out sanding belts then unscrew the tracking tensioner a bit on the opposite side with a allen wrench until the roller snaps back in place. I never remember anything about using a screw driver to force it back forward position again. Then readjust the tracking if necessary with a few short sanding load tests and you're good to go. Oil is dropped in the front roller center by removing the flat head screw - it should say "Oil Here" around the screw.
