If you ever got a copy of the belt sander manual, could you please forward it to me at [email protected]

Thanks, Leslie

By the way, everyone's suggestions have helped. All I need now is to figure out how to "track" the belt.

Wowery, smowery, you're a popular dude! :)

I, too, hope you're still around, and could have a copy of your manual, too!

Actually, I have a 4" model (#315-11782), but this one sounds very similar.

I, too, have great difficulty in bringing back the wheel. In fact, right now it's sitting under my bench, seemly "permanently" retracted. It shouldn't be this hard, should it?

Thank you muchly!!

Funny that I came here through a search on a way to work the belt adjustment in order to remove and install a belt. I took me a good hour to figure out how to get slack via the front roller when removing a belt. For this, hold the unit as you would while working. Point the nose to the floor and apply pressure. The roller retracts and stays in place. Then, to re-extend the front roller; you lay the unit on the floor (belt down/handle up). Roll the unit to the right 45 degrees, tilt the unit forward until the roller contacts the floor. Apply slight downward pressure (unit still tilted forward at at the same angle) and the front roller pops back into place. That part took quite a bit longer to figure..
