Belt Sander details that may stun you or blow you away. This is some great information that I gathered up about the awesome carpentry tool and now I am sharing it with the world.

Carpenters Making a Choice

What you plan to use the belt sander for should be a major determining factor when choosing one to buy A rugged. heavy-duty carpentry machine will speed up chores like evening and smoothing large surfaces. It will be easier to keep the 100I from tilting and gouging the work if it has a broad platen. but it will be a tiresome handful when you use it on vertical surfaces or, possibly overhead.

On some jobs it will be convenient if you can work up against a vertical surface. For example you might bonding a floor or smoothing a shelf and with to work flush lathe wall Many models arc shaped to allow for this application, so, if it's important to you. check for projections on the open side of the machine that might prevent such use.

Check to sec what is involved in changing the belt and adjusting the drum for correct tracking. Will it be much of a chore to keep the tool properly lubricated? Does it have or will it take a dust bug? Check the balance, the "fed" of the carpentry tool, Is of or deciding lithe feature, of several meet your standard, the more comfortable one might be for you.


Unless the tool has automatic tracking, the idler Mum at the front of the carpentry tool is adjusted for both belt tension and belt tracking. Abrasive belts are marked with an arrow on their uncoated sides which indicates correct direction of rotation. This is necessary/ so the scam in the belt will not snag on workpieces. The rotation is clockwise so. when you mount a belt, be sure the arrow points accordingly.

Decreasing the distance between the drums allows you to slip shell into place.In most cases this is accomplished by standing the tool on its front drum and pushing down finely until the drum is locked firmly in a retracted position. After the hell is slipped over the drums a level or some similar device, is used to release the front one. This pulls the bell taut between the drums to provide necessary tension.

Correct trucking guides the belt me perfectly straight line over both drums. Any lateral motion would allow the belt to slip off the free end of the drums or to move in the opposite direction where it would ram against the carpentry tool casing.Thanks for reading this page on the official belt sander.
