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.

Re my Sears 3" belt


What did you use to make is smaller (to shrink?)
Is the back of the belt cloth or paper?

Dampness usually makes things stretch--
But too much moisture, and you tear easily, too!

I have a Black & Decker sander, model # 7447 and am having problems changing the sand paper.


The 7447 does not have a release lever. To change the belt, you must release tension of the rollers by pushing the front roller straight back until you hear it click and lock in position to change paper. Remove old paper and replace with new paper. Make sure if new paper has directional arrows to install properly.
Now you must release the front roller to put tension on paper. To do this push the front roller from the side that has the adjustment screw. This will release the front roller and allow it to go back into position. Be careful as it pops back quickly and with some force.
Turn on sander and adjust centering of paper with adjustment screw found near the front and side of sander.

I have an old 3 x 21 inch belt sander. I put on a new belt, but the belt tightening device is locked in the "open" position. How do I unlock it so it tightens the belt?


I have that same sander. Know what you mean. I usually end up using a hammer to trip the roller and get it to release by hitting the side(end) of the roller with the hammer. Good luck.

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.

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.

BELT SANDER ADJUSTMENT


Try removing the adjustment screws and applying some Teflon thread sealant. That should prevent the screws from turning on their own. Another thing you can do it check the pulleys with calipers and make sure it is still cylindrical. I have seen ones that become worn on one side. Finally, roughly check the belt tension on both sides and make sure they are approximately the same tension.

Good Luck!
