Probably an 8-32 or 10-32 (possibly a 10-24) or even a 1/4-20. You can get small packs of these size screws at most hardware stores so would be cheap to busy one of each and try and once you know the size you can get a set screw of that size. Another crude way is to see what size drill bit will fit into the threaded hole. If a 3/32" goes but a 7/64" doesn't or fits tight, it is a size 6 (likely 32 threads per inch (TPI). If a 1/8" bit goes but a 9/64 doesn't or is really tight then it is a # 8 size. (8-32 is most common). If the 9/64 goes freely but a 5/32 doesn't it would likely be a 10-24 whereas if the 5/32 does go but an 11/64 doesn't then figure it to be a 10-32. Finally, it could be a 1/4-20 if a 3/16" bit goes but a 13/64 doesn't or is fairly tight. If it is really big and a 1/4" bit fits the hole then it is likely a 5/16-18.

Here's a link to the online manual.
As far as that diagram....didn't you label the wires?
Take a look here, it may help you. circuit wiring , especially the paragraph that begins: "Knowing that electrically common points have zero voltage drop between them is a valuable troubleshooting principle." Also read about resistors. That speed control knob is one.
Hope that helps...

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!

I went to a bearing/powertransmission supplier. The number on the belt was all they needed. Picked up a new belt for \$6.50.

Mine was underpowered from the get go. I have since sold it. Keeping it well lubricated does help though.

### I have lost the screw that holds the sanding from spinning on its own. I can't find the part number. Could you assist please?

I do not know if this will help because I do not know which screw you need. If you click on the link below you can look at the delta service manual parts list.

Otherwise can you be more specific on the location of the screw?

### What size belt does it use

You did not mention a model number, but the is probably the width of the belt and the 6 is probably the diamter of the disc.

The sanding belt size is probably a 4" wide by 36" long, but it may be 4 x 24" long. Put a string around the rollers, and then stretch the string out straight. Measure it and that is the belt length.

You can find either size belt at sites like http://www.2Sand.com and http://www.BuySandpaper.com

The belt cover that does down the front of the belt, below the table, should have an opening inside the baes/vacuum unit. Make sure this isn't clogged with buildup.
