I forgot to post this the other day, but it looks like the spindle sander may be broken. Whatever mechanism causes it to rise and fall isn’t working, and it makes an awful clunking sound when it’s running.
I put a defective tag on it Friday.
Also, I could not figure out how to put a new belt on the belt sander for the life of me… every time I turned it on, the belt would slowly shift off to the side. Any idea what I’m doing wrong? Here’s what I tried:
- Lift the top,
- Pull the orange lever,
- Put the new belt on,
- Push the orange lever in,
- Close the top.
