there is a wrench supplied with the tool that you need to insert in the slot on the clamp and push the wrench towards the tool to open the clamp. Now if you follow closely I can direct you to a manual and parts list. Go to "dewaltservicenet.com" and scroll down to the bottom and you will find a porter cable link, click on that and then when you get to the next page click on tools. Scroll down till you find sanders and click on that. Next find finishing sanders and you will find your model sander click on the description and it will again redirect you to another page where you can find the manual. The whole manual is 44 pages long but that includes other languages. The page that you specifically need is page 10. If you have a problem let me know and I will try and help. This is the first time that I have had to take this route to find a manual on their site.

I also have a PC Model 136 belt sander. Although I don't do a lot of woodworking, it has proved to be a workhorse when I needed it. I don't have a problem with breaking belts - the last ones I bought at OSH. The problem that has developed with mine is getting the belt alignment adjusted, after a belt change, to not run against the sander body. A little banging (with my hand) will correct the problem. I have serviced it to free up the fulcrum, but it still jams most of the time. This doesn't address your problem, but it is good to hear of someone else who appreciates the fine older tools. Just a further thought - the newer belts I have purchased are bi-directional, e.g., they will run either way. I know that the older belts had to run one way and running them backward could - almost surely would - cause them to break. I won't insult your intelligence to suggest that that might be your problem.

The brushes are not replaceable - it is an entire motor assembly.
1) remove the 2 screws holding the top handle on
2) remove the 2 screws on the top of the housing (front either side of switch)
3) remove single screw holding cord hook (rear side of housing)
4) remove small torx screw in the shaker handle and remove the handle
Flip over and using a screwdriver begin to pry the top cover off the housing (easiest to get the front side off first)

any word on type of nailer?

first you need to remove the tank and get rid of the rust with a rust kill agent, vinga or chemical type with corrosive converter, then liquid paint the inside of the tank, swilling the paint inside and leave to drip out. then find a high pressure line filter, these are a solid filter and put in line. to stop this happening again to the tank you can also put a drop valve in place and when not in use press to release the air inside as this is what rusts the tank. but after the restoration it should be fine without a filter.

I suggest that you make sure that there is no air he tool so, remove the air supply. Then if you remove the cover from the nose (Making sure that you also take out all the unused nails first) it should allow access to the front nose plate. If you remove this, it will allow you to carefully remove the nail. While you're at it, check that the driver blade tip doesn't have any burring or damage to it. If so, you might need to fettle it back into shape or, replace it?
