  • Oscillating Belt/Spindle Sander - Belt wheel misaligned?

    Hi All. I recently bought this spindle sander and tried it out on a piece. Wow that thing really removes material fast!

    I have one difficulty with it though - when I pressed a flat, long piece against the belt, the wheel on the right side (the smaller one that tensions the belt) cut a round gouge into the piece. It seems that the flat plate that backs the belt isn't aligned properly. The right side drum sits nearly a full 1/16" proud of the plate.

    I didn't see anything in the manual about adjusting this particular part. Is there an adjustment on the belt sanding assembly that I can correct this myself with, or do I need to send that part in for service?

    Thanks in advance!
