Putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours may loosen the screw by contraction and or you will have to use an impact wrench unless it is completely stripped , then you will have to drill it out.

Belt sander does not collect dust anymore. I blew it out very well with my air nozzel and it did not help.


It could have a piece of sanding belt in the passageway. What I have done is get a shop vac and VERY carefully run the tool with no belt and put the hose end over the exhaust port, This sometimes works short of disassembly. You might also want to gently tap the side cover to loosen up the dust.

Owners manual is here. Exploded diagram is here.

I would like to note the manufacturers site lists 557 Types 1-4. Not sure what the difference between them is, but if you need the link, it's here on page 4 of 5.

Is the thread that holds the blade in left handed or right? I can't get the screw loose!


Hello. Use some WD-40 on the screw and let it sit for a few hours. Then be sure you have a screwdriver that fits properly. As you look at the screw head, left is loose. Turn the screw head in a counter clockwise direction. Regards, Joe
PS - kindly rate my answer as helpful. thank you.

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
