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 and went poking around and found another adjustment requiring two allen head bolts to be loosened then reposition and tighten. Again fired it up and now it does as it was designed. Would have helped if I had the manual years ago! Or had I gone online and downloaded it, easy enough to find. But for years I knew how to get it running and just went with it. Probably would not have ever looked but had to look for something in my manual book and realized this tool has no manual and I never made a sheet for maintenance for it. Two tips here, one is of course where the adjustments are for this particular type of sander. Second have a manual and if something does not work correctly look into it and see if adjustments are needed. Sears Model 351.22676 BELT TRACKING ADJUSTMENT SCREW ADJUSTMENT ARM FOR BELT. Move forward and back and applies tension to the belt. If too far forward will over tension belt.

I have a manual drill press ACME that was used as a yard ornament for years and now stands in my wife’s flower garden. I have had it there for about 20 years. It is rusted but on close inspection and it is not too bad. Every now and then someone will stop and ask if I want to sell it. It is frozen down where you can’t turn the manual wheel. I don’t want to force it and break it. It is a favorite but never gets used. My wife refuses to turn the handle. Preston
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
