Question about Tools & Hardware - Others

1 Answer

I can't find a source for parts for this sander (5910).

I have a Milwaukee 5910 4" belt sander. The rear drum(28-95-0055)seems to be worn and doesn't drive the belt well anymore. Also, the base plate (28-72-0030)is worn away and needs to be replaced. I have looked everywhere online that I know to look and have come up empty. Does anyone have any ideas on where to find old hard to find parts? Thanks, Coalloki.

    Thanks, but although this site lists the parts, the ones I need are listed as "obsolete-not available". Any other ideas?


  • Coalloki May 31, 2009

    I have no attachment to this tool other than it is better made and more powerful than most of the newer ones. If it can be made "good as new" for the price of a couple of parts, I'm all for it. It would save me a few bucks in the long run. I have looked on Ebay for a donor with no luck. I have also found many websites that sell parts for this model, but the parts I need seem to be the ones that are luck. I was hoping that somebody here might know of something beyond what Google pops up.....local warehouse.....friend in the business..........etc......

    There is always the possibility of going on ebay and looking for one like yours that you can salvage for the parts. On the other hand, unless you have some personal reason to be attached to this tool, you might want to consider several of the new models out there now which are different sizes, lighter, faster, etc. etc. etc., even the rebuilts are good and a real deal.

    I share your frustration. I had a wonderful 16" circular saw from craftsman that was over ten years old and had to be trashed because sears doesn't carry parts for their tools beyond the ten year mark.

Belt sander runs until I put pressure on it

It sounds like the sand paper itself is slipping. There should be an adjustment to tighten the pressure on the sand paper itself.

Milwaukee 4''x24 belt sander 'lock lever'' broken

I can't find that part on a couple sites that I use. Did you try calling Milwaukee direct and see if they have any in the branches? You can try and call 1-800-242-4424 they are a Metco Authorized center and see if they have one laying around and I will do some more checking with friends of mine, but let me know if you do find one and I will do the same. Don't give up hope yet.

Cannot disassemble Milwaukee 6016 to replace brushes

exactly what screws did you remove. you have to remove the bottom platen first (pad) then remove the housing screws. you need to remove the fan also and then might need to apply some pressure to split the housing halves.

Porter Cable 352V belt sander eats belts

I've never had any particular problems with norton belts. All belts will require some adjustment as they wear in,however.
Try this: Put a new belt on, turn the sander upside down and rest it on the front handle. Get a good grip on the rear handle and turn it on while you use your other hand to turn the tracking adjustment. Just center the belt on the drum. I don't know what the manual tells you to do, but that's what matters, that the belt rides across the platen without hanging out loose in space or running up against the housing of the machine. If it does ride in against the housing, and you don't track it away, eventually you'll have a groove worn right through the side of the machine.
If you try this, and it still doesn't work, make sure the drums are secure and look right. Is it possible the machine was dropped and the drum bent? If so, parts will have to be replaced.
The only other cause I can imagine is that there is some kind of something jammed inside the housing that is protruding into the belt pathway that they're getting caught on, but that seems unlikely. Check anyway. Look with a flashlight.
There are better belts available than Norton, but they should work.
Some belts have an arrow on the inside of the belt indicating the direction of travel. Make sure if yours does, that you put it on that way. I try to install them so the joint will tend to ride up over the work instead of the work tending to want to tear the joint apart, but this is not always obvious, depending on the mfr.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
