Question about Sanders & Sanding Blocks

Routine Maintenance? Are there any routine maintenance procedures for my B&D 7447 belt sander? I noticed today while using it that there appears to be an oil leak, and it smells kind of like gear oil. Is this a problem? Thanks for your time. T. Rourke

This is an older model tool, not many parts are available. The problem will continue if you don't address it. The reduction geartrain is "permanently" (not so much) lubricated from the factory with a heavy weight grease. With age, time and enough use these less-expensive gearboxes get hot and the heavier solids separate from the oil base, causing the oily smell you are experiencing and presence of oil.

If you are mechanically inclined; I attached a link to the exploded diagram, you can open the geartrain, clean all the old stuff up and if the heat wasn't because the parts are visibly worn; then use a moly-based bearing grease from your local autoparts store (comes in a can, looks like a waxy paste). Coat the teeth so the grease fills the tooth gaps, but don't get carried away. Re-assemble and you should be good to go.

Honestly, this is an inexpensive sander, Ryobi makes a value priced model that works great if you choose to replace it verse service it.

Here's the diagram link

Please help me find a free owners manual for my porter cable 352vs belt sander


The ServiceNet site has the manual for most Porter Cable power tools here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/ . The 352VS documentation is here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/Detail/352VS . Look in the right hand column for the Instruction Manual; you'll see an option to download a PDF or have the manual sent by email. However, you need to look at the sander and attempt to find the Type number. This will be on the label with the model and serial number. There are 7 different belt sanders that were released with the 352VS model number. Use this number to get the details for your sander. The direct link to the manual for the Type 1 version, today, is http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=EnA00111.pdf&productId=55856&productType=12187&documentId=32863&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/Porter-Cable/EnA00111.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How do I change the sanding belt on my 7447 belt sander


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.

Delta disc and 1" belt worled yesterday, not today. I turn the switch on and the disc "twitches" and the motor hums. I can turn the disc by hand so it's not jammed. Belts are good. Any ideas???


the motor has lost its polarity it uses magnetic electric polarity to turn around. the fault is just as bad as a burned out motor you could have the motor rewound but it would cost more than the entire unit..

sorry
take care.

Black & Decker 3X21'' belt sander (#7447)- pushed front roller in to put on new belt, can't get it to spring back out. Jim in Flippin


I have one of those and I just smack the front roller ahead with a brass or plastic hammer. I hit the movable bracket that the roller is attached to. It takes a pretty stout whack to do it though. hope this helps you

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.
