SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: replacing sand paper

Look on the side of the tool between the guide and drive wheels for a lever

Loosening or disengaging this lever will take the tension off of the belt so that it can be removed

If there is no lever, there will be a tension know on the front of the tool that you can loosen to remove the belt

SOURCE: I have a PC Model 136 Belt sander--I know it's

I also have a PC Model 136 belt sander. Although I don't do a lot of woodworking, it has proved to be a workhorse when I needed it. I don't have a problem with breaking belts - the last ones I bought at OSH. The problem that has developed with mine is getting the belt alignment adjusted, after a belt change, to not run against the sander body. A little banging (with my hand) will correct the problem. I have serviced it to free up the fulcrum, but it still jams most of the time. This doesn't address your problem, but it is good to hear of someone else who appreciates the fine older tools. Just a further thought - the newer belts I have purchased are bi-directional, e.g., they will run either way. I know that the older belts had to run one way and running them backward could - almost surely would - cause them to break. I won't insult your intelligence to suggest that that might be your problem.

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.

Porter cable 352vs manual


My Porter Cable 352vs Belt Sander was clogged from sanding epoxy, wet wood, something like that. No dust collection at all.
I had to remove 4 screws on the housing, one screw under the front handle and another below the rear handle. The housing came out very easily (with a little wiggle). Pay very close attention to where the position of your plastic fan housing sits. It will only be installed in one spot.
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/images/porter_cable/352_TYPE_1.pdf
The pdf diagram was not exactly correct on the housing placement.
Once opened, The wood and epoxy were caked in everyplace. I brushed them out and replaced the screws.

Good as new.

Good luck.

How do I adjust the porter cable sander so that the belt runs stright?


The porter cable belt sanders have an adjustment knob (threaded screw with a black plastic t-nut on the end). The knob adjusts the angle of one of the rollers and thus the tracking of the belt. The know takes very little adjustment to change the belt's tracking.

Is the know perhaps missing? You can get replacement parts for for porter cable tools at www.servicenet.com.

Hope this helps.
