SOURCE: I have a Canadian tire model 55-3550-2 belt/disc

I went to a bearing/powertransmission supplier. The number on the belt was all they needed. Picked up a new belt for $6.50.

I have one of those and I just smack the front roller ahead with a brass or plastic hammer. I hit the movable bracket that the roller is attached to. It takes a pretty stout whack to do it though. hope this helps you

SOURCE: I use Dewalt random orbital sanders regularly

The velcro pads wear out and need to be replaced periodically. You can buy new pads on-line at any Dewalt parts seller.

Towel caught in front roller


Well, it sounds like you have a belt sander. I would start by sacrificing the towel and the belt. Even if you tried all day and were able to save them they would probably look like they got caught in a sander. Get a utility knife and change the blade, you will want a brand new sharp blade for this. Start by cutting as much of the exposed towel off as you can. Remember, at this point the only thing you might be able to save is the sander. Cutting off the belt will relieve the tension. When you cut the belt give yourself enough belt on ether side to get a good grip. You might need to pull the belt back and forth as you remove small pieces of the towel. A good pair of pliers might help grip the towel fragments. When you finally do remove all the towel and the belt, take some time to look around the drum for fibers that might be stuck in the bearings and pull them out. You may need needle knows pliers for this. Keep the towel shreds for sating rags to finish the project you're working on so it will not be a total waist.
Good Luck

The big roller at the back that spins has unscrewed and i cant seem to tighten it back on. is there a trick to this?.


generally you would use a strap wrench to hold the roller and then something to hold the gear to reseat the rear roller.

4) With sander running, use tracking screw to center belt.

How do I change the sanding belt on my 7447 belt sander


To change the belt, you must release tension of the rollers by pushing the front roller straight back until you hear it click and lock in position to change paper. Remove old paper and replace with new paper. Make sure if new paper has directional arrows to install properly.
Now you must release the front roller to put tension on paper. To do this push the front roller from the side that has the adjustment screw. This will release the front roller and allow it to go back into position. Be careful as it pops back quickly and with some force.
Turn on sander and adjust centering of paper with adjustment screw found near the front and side of sander.

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172


I checked Searspartsdirect.com for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

How do you replace the drive belt on a Porter Cable Belt Sander


There is a lever on the side at the front right near the roller that you can use to release the spring tension on that roller (moving it slightly to the rear).  Once the tension is released you can slip the sanding belt onto both rollers from the side.  Release the lever and the spring will put tension on the belt to hold it in place.  Use the knob on the left side to center the belt on the roller if it starts to slip sideways when in use.

Craftsman 3x21 plastic front roller needs replacing


Do you know anyone with a metal lathe or that works in a machine shop? If you do ask them if they can make the rollers for you out of metal. Or else find a machine shop and ask them to make you new rollers.

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.

Slipping belt


OK the belt tensioning mechanism is spring loaded. First what is the quality of the belts are they real flimsy or stiff. You say the rollers spin but my question does the rear roller still spin and the belt remain stationary. If so the rubber belt on motor is bad. I would take a look for excessive wear on the rear roller. Does the yoke mechanism snap forward or move slowly, look for a build up of sawdust in this area that might be restricting movement on the yoke. The wear plate in still good condition. One other thing on the belts are they directional? Do they have an arrow on the inside if so that has to point toward front of tool. I looked at a breakdown and could not see anything else to suggest. I never had this problem except with belts when I was at Makita.
