Years ago I was given this Sears Sander from a guy who said it was junk and would not spin, just hummed. At the time I discovered the tension was very tight. To get it going I pushed back on the tension arm and it worked so I went with that. Today I got to looking at this and wondered why does it not just fire up correctly. In looking at the belt as it spun I also noticed at the bottom pulley the belt was not tracking correctly. So I looked for an adjuster for tracking, much like on a hand held belt sander. Found that, and adjusted the tracking but the tension issue remained. Removed the cover
