On the front wheel , there is a screw that you can adjust ,, that will adjust the tracking of the front wheel, the rear wheel is stationary , once you have the new belt on, locate that screw,, and just click the switch as you adjust it,, once adjusted, you will see that it tracks straight and won't fall off

Porter cable 352vs manual


My Porter Cable 352vs Belt Sander was clogged from sanding epoxy, wet wood, something like that. No dust collection at all.
I had to remove 4 screws on the housing, one screw under the front handle and another below the rear handle. The housing came out very easily (with a little wiggle). Pay very close attention to where the position of your plastic fan housing sits. It will only be installed in one spot.

The pdf diagram was not exactly correct on the housing placement.
Once opened, The wood and epoxy were caked in everyplace. I brushed them out and replaced the screws.

Good as new.

Good luck.

I have a Porter Cable Model 371 2.5" X 14" Belt Sander. I broke a belt, when I did it jammed and also broke a rubber sleeve that covers the Drive Wheel. I have yet to find this rubber sleeve in any part...


Unfortunatly that sleeve is not available, you will need to purchase a whole new drive wheel. The Drive wheel is $9.66 from DeWalt Service Net. Porter Cable, Delta & DeWalt are all owned by Stanley Black & Decker, you can contact DeWalt Factory Service for all parts. 1-800-4-DeWalt You can order the parts on-line, over the phone or though a local service center. The website is www.dewaltservicenet.com Below is the parts diagram for your sander. The part number for the drive wheel is A16439

Porter Cable 362 belt sander - the paper slips off


there might be a buildup of sawdust in the tensioning mechanism or the yoke might be bent. I would look at excess buildup in the mechanism first. there are 3 screws on the outside of the tool so you can remove the assembly as a whole. try and clean as thoroughly as possible. the mechanism should move freely and "snap" when lever released.

Sand paper keeps slipping help


I don't know what type of sander you are speaking about it just says generic ALL PORTER CABLE SANDERS. You got to be a little more specific. If it is a disk sander use 3M disk adhesive. It is a contact cement. spread some on the rubber backing disk with your hand, let dry then apply the sanding disk. After the disk is clogged, peel it off and apply another disk. when the adhesive won't hold anymore disks, re-apply the adhesive.

Replacing sand paper


Look on the side of the tool between the guide and drive wheels for a lever

Loosening or disengaging this lever will take the tension off of the belt so that it can be removed

If there is no lever, there will be a tension know on the front of the tool that you can loosen to remove the belt
