Question about Delta 31 - 255X X5 18'' x 36'' Drum Sander
I have a delta 18x36 Drum Sander (31-250) Everytime I put a new belt on the drum it rips off within a few passes. The belt cuts itself off clean where the belt come out of the clamp that holds it in place. Part C in Figure 35 on page 14 of the manual. It happens over an over again. I go though a belt or two, then I usually get one that holds up for a while. When that one wears out I'm back to destorying belts again. I can't figure it out.
Belt sander are very tempermentel and require a light machine oil (3-in-one) on the metal slides and Tension lever and springs to opperate properally, if not they will drive you nuts, it will make a big differance, a few drops will do ya, more it needed, to much will cause a reverse action and collect dust, clean areas before oiling with air preasure and fluids if needed to get rid of build up from wood dust
