No powerto sander. Cord is good,switch is good and brushes are long


It sounds to me that you have used the sander a lot and the vibration has broken a wire or it's about to break on the field windings. The brushes you need to look at to see if worn. But I kind of think wire problem. I had this happen on mine and opened it up to find this is what happened. The sander would be turned on and would not operate until I turn upside down and it would work. This is great if you are sanding upside down but this is just a sign that you are on borrowed time as this will eventually not turn on at all. I was able to fix mine with new wire crimp connection and solder with heat shrink material. If not you can order new field winding if this is what is wrong. Cleaning up the sander won't hurt either. You might want to see what a new sander will cost vs. part. Good Luck!

Could you please tell me what sandpaper goes on the Mouse sander/polisher model # MS500


ok this easy go to the hardware store and ask for the sandpaper to fit your sander, black & decker make sandpaper specifically for that sander. now depending what job you want to do will determin what grade you want sand paper works like this the higher the number on the paper the finer it is so for example 80 is very coarse you would use that for eg stripping thick paint on a door but 2000 is very fine and is used for eg sanding varnish between coats. ok hope that helps let me know how you go.

Where can i buy new brushes for the vec236


I believe this is a "throw away" tool :o( if not, there'll be a screw-type "door" in the chassis of the grinder...get the brushes out and try your local ACE or TruValue hdwe.
Good Luck

Belt won't stay on belt sander


Check first that you have retensioned the belt... i.e. when you removed the other belt, you would have had to pull on a spring-loaded lever to remove the belt tension before you added the new one... make sure the tension lever is flipped back in to ensure the new belt is tensioned...

Next, and the likely problem you are having, is belt tracking... There should be an adjustment knob up near the front of the sander near the front roller, either on top of the front part of the sander, or to the side near the front roller... When you turn this knob, it makes the belt track either left or right over the sander's base. This knob will allow your belt to run square and true and not spin off to one side...You need to adjust the tracking using this knob while the belt sander is running and with the new belt tensioned and in place, so turn the sander upside down, and power it on with one hand, then turn the knob with the other hand whichever way is needed to have the belt track square and in the middle of the rollers. Make small adjustments on the tracking knob to begin with. They can be sensitive at times.

That should stop your belt spinning off to one side.
