I need a drive belt for a Stanley belt sander


Unless there is a model that I have never seen, the sandpaper is the drive belt on belt sanders.

Towel caught in front roller


Well, it sounds like you have a belt sander. I would start by sacrificing the towel and the belt. Even if you tried all day and were able to save them they would probably look like they got caught in a sander. Get a utility knife and change the blade, you will want a brand new sharp blade for this. Start by cutting as much of the exposed towel off as you can. Remember, at this point the only thing you might be able to save is the sander. Cutting off the belt will relieve the tension. When you cut the belt give yourself enough belt on ether side to get a good grip. You might need to pull the belt back and forth as you remove small pieces of the towel. A good pair of pliers might help grip the towel fragments. When you finally do remove all the towel and the belt, take some time to look around the drum for fibers that might be stuck in the bearings and pull them out. You may need needle knows pliers for this. Keep the towel shreds for sating rags to finish the project you're working on so it will not be a total waist.
Good Luck

The sandpaper works its way off the machine almost immediately after turning machine on. We already checked to see if the paper was the right size. We also made sure the tightening lever was secure.


If this is a belt sander then they have a tracking adjustment knob. You will need to adjust it so that the belt stays on and doesn't want to walk off.

The sandpaper keeps sliding off the sander everytime I turn it on. Even when I turn the dial it to tighten it or move it over it keeps on sliding off.


You need to turn the dial slowly. If the belt starts to come off turn the knob in the other direction,slowly until the belt is centered. Doing it slow is the trick.

CHANGE THE SANDPAPER IN THE BELT SANDER


there should be a lever that will loosen the tention on the belt so you can get it off. be sure to put the new belt on with the arrows facing the rotation (some sanding belts do not need to be oriented this way, but check) otherwise the belt will come apart after a few rotations.

Sandpaper sliding off


there isnt enough tension on the belt, hence the side to side movement. keep tightening the spring until it stops
