The drive belt is a toothed rubber belt, which will be 'thrown off' if there is too much resistance to rotation (pressing too hard, or sanding belt not correctly aligned and rubbing against the side).
To access this, it is not necessary to remove the sanding disc.
Remove the two allen bolts on the top which hold the disc belt assembly (NOT the one that clamps the belt drive disc). The whole assembly lifts off, giving access to the drive belt. It is a bit fiddly, but it can be hooked back on the pulleys and the bolts refitted. Good luck!

SOURCE: Orbital sander flicking the sand paper off

You did not specify how the sanding discs are meant to be attached to your sander's backing pad.  My experience with this type of problem is material from the sanding process builds up on the backing pad and does not allow the sanding discs to adhere properly.  If you have a velcro type system, clean the hooks on the sander's backing bad by soaking the pad's face in a plate of paint thinner for 20 to 30 minutes then use a wire brush to remove the rest of the paint physically.    For adhesive pads clean the sander's backing pad surface with denatured alcohol.  Do not use isopropryl or rubbing alcohol as this may not be 100% alcohol and could contain a lubricant like glycerin.  When the sander's backing pad is completely dry and clean it will hold adhesive backed pads fine.    Flaky paint is best scraped off before sanding, use a wide putty knife or a paint scaper to remove large flakes before sanding.  This will minimize airborne dust and cleanup.    For best results with adhesives, always keep your surfaces  clean!    Good luck and happy sanding!  Michael Mittelsdorf

SOURCE: belt won't stay on belt sander

Check first that you have retensioned the belt... i.e. when you removed the other belt, you would have had to pull on a spring-loaded lever to remove the belt tension before you added the new one... make sure the tension lever is flipped back in to ensure the new belt is tensioned...

Next, and the likely problem you are having, is belt tracking... There should be an adjustment knob up near the front of the sander near the front roller, either on top of the front part of the sander, or to the side near the front roller... When you turn this knob, it makes the belt track either left or right over the sander's base. This knob will allow your belt to run square and true and not spin off to one side...You need to adjust the tracking using this knob while the belt sander is running and with the new belt tensioned and in place, so turn the sander upside down, and power it on with one hand, then turn the knob with the other hand whichever way is needed to have the belt track square and in the middle of the rollers. Make small adjustments on the tracking knob to begin with. They can be sensitive at times.

That should stop your belt spinning off to one side.

Maybe you can use a linked belt to replace it. Check the width of the old drive belt, and give these folks a call: Lee Valley

SOURCE: removing armature from clarke super 7r edger

The rubber backup plate threads on. You can make up a bracket to insert into the 2 larger holes of the plate. You must keep the fan of the edger from turning to unscrew the plate. I use a hard piece of wood or if you are careful, a large screw driver. The plate unscrews counter-clockwise.

Belt sander clogged dust collection


What have you been sanding?  Make sure the sander is unplugged. Remove the dust collector bag and use a flexible wire, like a coat hanger, to free the clogged material from the dust tube.  Replace bag and sand away!  Hope this solution works for you.  Michael Mittelsdorf

Motor runs but the drive drum that hold the sanding belt does not turn.


Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.

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.
