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.

Belt sander runs until I put pressure on it


It sounds like the sand paper itself is slipping. There should be an adjustment to tighten the pressure on the sand paper itself.

After installing new belt, on Porter Belt Sander 352VS #6 the belt drifts of to one side until it comes completely off. How do I stop this?


There is a tracking adjustment knob on the side of the sander--adjust one way or the other until it tracks properly. This is something that will change by itself as the sander is being used--check periodically.

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

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.

My porter cable 362 belt sander will not adjust enough to center the belt. When the thumb adj. screw is completely free (lose), it rides about halfway across the roller and stays. I can't bring it back...


The slide arm mechanisms and tension arm, springs, etc. need a little light machine oil, 3-in-1, to make them slide easly, a few dropes will do the trick, do not over oil. Move the adjustment knob just hair at a time or it will over adjust, hope this helps you.

Porter Cable belt sander


try to rig the nozzle of a shop vac to the part where the bag would normally connect and run the sander simultaneously with vac for a few minutes and see if that helps
