Delta model 31-396 edge sander ( belt troubles..)
Ok here is what i am incurring, i wanted to to sand the edge of a board and be square when done both in thickness and width, but with the belt being bubbled or not tight against the platen its not going to happen.. even on the long way its going to sand a concave area..
if anyone has a edge sander and can help i am all ears,, have talked with a couple of you and it seems i need more belt tension, but this thing tilts the head to make it oscillate and therefore it basically is loosening up and the tightening back down,, to me the belt should be flat against the platen when running, in order to sand flat anything ,, as it is the part gets sanded before it ever puts pressure against the platen.. if you or your neighbor has one of these test it out for me or see how theirs works.. becasue this one seems to have issues or the operator needs to read some tech manual
If in Doubt, Build it Stout!
One hand washes the other!
Don't put off today till tomorrow!
