Maybe you can use a linked belt to replace it. Check the width of the old drive belt, and give these folks a call: Lee Valley

How do you change the belt


The front roller (usually a metal cylinder) is spring loaded. The rear roller (usually a rubber cylinder) is fixed and is driven by a belt from the motor. You need to push the front roller against a fixed object (like a benchtop) pretty hard to compress the spring about 1/2 inch. It should "catch" in the compressed position. Belt will now be loose and easy to reeplace. Then, to "un-catch" it, on most models, just stick a screwdriver behind the front roller bracket and pry it forward. It should pop right back into place. Good luck.

Motor runs, but the belt doesn't turn. Is this an easy fix or is it time to get a new sander?


depending on the model there might be a problem with a rubber belt from the motor to the rear roller or the gears are damaged, if you provide that I can look at a breakdown and try and come up with some numbers for you. Let me know

How do you replace the drive belt on a Porter Cable Belt Sander


There is a lever on the side at the front right near the roller that you can use to release the spring tension on that roller (moving it slightly to the rear).  Once the tension is released you can slip the sanding belt onto both rollers from the side.  Release the lever and the spring will put tension on the belt to hold it in place.  Use the knob on the left side to center the belt on the roller if it starts to slip sideways when in use.

Craftsman 3x21 plastic front roller needs replacing


Do you know anyone with a metal lathe or that works in a machine shop? If you do ask them if they can make the rollers for you out of metal. Or else find a machine shop and ask them to make you new rollers.

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.

Slipping belt


OK the belt tensioning mechanism is spring loaded. First what is the quality of the belts are they real flimsy or stiff. You say the rollers spin but my question does the rear roller still spin and the belt remain stationary. If so the rubber belt on motor is bad. I would take a look for excessive wear on the rear roller. Does the yoke mechanism snap forward or move slowly, look for a build up of sawdust in this area that might be restricting movement on the yoke. The wear plate in still good condition. One other thing on the belts are they directional? Do they have an arrow on the inside if so that has to point toward front of tool. I looked at a breakdown and could not see anything else to suggest. I never had this problem except with belts when I was at Makita.
