Re: 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
