Instead of the face of the pullies being perfectly straight,a slight crown , meaning high in the center, will help the blade track to the center better. Most of the big band saws have crowned faces on the pully faces where the blade acually touches. The other option is to look for wear on the ajustment system or shaft(s) bearings.I am persuming no vibration while running.

SOURCE: 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.

There should be a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander behind the front roller. Run the saw and adjust this knob to center the belt. You will probably have to do this every time you change belts. Hope this helps you...

I have a pressure control skil octo Sander .i think i pressed down to hard now the pressure light stays on and it won't sand but Motor runs good


The transmission between the motor and the sanding belt has been damaged by the excessive pressure you applied. Check it carefully to see if something got bent and operation can be restored. If it is gear driven and you broke off some of the gears then .....................................

What causes my belt sander to leave black goo on the wood? I keep replacing the sand belt, I do not push the sander into the wood.


Maybe you are burning the wood. If the wood is hard (like oak or maple) and the grit is fine (like 100 or higher) then this can only be avoided by NEVER running it still in one place. Keep the sander moving quickly over the surface. In fact, you should start the sander BEFORE you touch it to the wood, and when you do touch the wood you should be landing it like a little airplane on the runway. As long as you keep the sander oriented with the grain you can move it forward and back as well as side to side. Just keep moving until you lift it off of the wood - this also helps keep the surface flatter. Good luck.
