  • eb44241 ocillating belt/spindle sander wont start-up

    I've had my belt/spindle sander for about 5 years and it has been damn good. But it recently jamed on a torn belt. Since then, it is very slow starting & sometimes not at all. I assume that the problem is the starter relay, but when I took it apart I was surprised to find that the bottom of the housing assembly was filled with grease/thick oil. Actually it is like cosmoline, if you know what that is. What is the purpose of that? Should it be cleaned out and replaced now that I've got it stripped down? Or is that the likely source of the starting problem?
    Thanks,
Working...
