If the cord is wedged, and it will be, loosening the lever is not enough.

1. Remove the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the black plastic cover (opposite side to the lever) on the side of the sander with dewalt printed on it. You will need to remove the 2 screws that hold the cover in place. Then carefull lift the cover off. There are 2 plastic pieces that slide into the main housing. They slide off. Gently.
3. The belt drive and pulley will now be exposed. Turn the pulley manually until you clear the cord from the roller.
4. Put the cover back on over the belt drive. Be careful to press in the wires on the main housing as you insert the plastic into the slots. Carefully. Put the screws back in till snug.
5. Inspect the power cords for cuts. Repair or replace as needed.

If you release the belt that would give you more room to get the cord out. When you releas the belt it brings the rollers together which loosens the belt.

Need the size and thread pitch for my Delta disc/belt sander wheel set screw


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.

How do I get the wheels to pop back out after changing the sanding belt on my old craftsman belt sander #31511720 model?


The tracking adjuster will tilt one wheel in so's you can start putting the belt on. After it gets about halfway, you will need to adjust that the other way and just bump the switch a bit a few times as you adjust and it'll work its way back on.

I ran over the cord on my belt sander


if you give me the model number I will find a replacement cord for you. The way I remove this cord is a pair of pliers and you have to "pull" the cord out of the roller if it is stuck there. Let me know how I can help

I have a Ryobi 700R trimmer - I need to know how to replace the pull cord - Tom


If your pull cord is still attached to the grab handle, it's likely your spring is still wound. Follow this if this is the case:
1. Disconnect the shaft by removing the small set screw and the clamp - pull the shaft out of the engine body.
2. Remove the recoil assembly (About 5-5 torx bolts).
3. Pull the cord until the stops and use a small piece of wood acting as a wedge to jam between the recoil and the housing.
4. Cut the line and pull the knotted terminating end from the hosing.
5. Keep the wedge tight so it does not spin back. If this happens, you will simply need to rewind the spring back (about five turns) and re-wedge it.

Use proper line and reverse for new line. Good luck!

The belt on the sander doesn't turn. The sander has power when plugged in and the motor runs when you press the button. But the Belt and track don't turn.


Likely the gear belt that drives the drive rollaer has failed. Either it is totally gone or the teeth in a spot have been destroyed and the motor is just spinning the sprocket in the belt. The belt is about 1/2 inch wide and is covered by a belt guard.

New feed belt will not track evenly. Belt is loose on left side & tight on right, but if I tighten the left side to pull it flat, it tracks off to the right immediately. I tried reversing the belt in...


Could be the belt, sometimes they get glued together wrong and they don't track, or its the tension wheel/ track wheel.

It looks like one of the stationary rollers might have a small adjustment
that you can do, hard to tell looking at the diagram,

but if you can adjust this tighter on the right side it should track the belt back to the left, so check and see if any of the rollers or holder of the rollers can be loosened and moved a hair to get the track to the left so the adjust track can make it track straight.

If you still have the old belt, put it on, if it works then there is a problem with the new one and it is not the machine.
