I too, have a 3" belt sander Model no. 315.11720 that runs like a champ. BUT it needs a new sanding belt, and I would really like a copy of the manual. I wrote to *****/Craftsman and requested a copy of the manual, however "Unfortunately, ***** no longer has a manual available for this tool.".

I would really like to use this tool, if you have a copy could you post it?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

Your post is old, so don't know if this will reach you. I'm a retired lady who needs to sand a door, so my son-in-law helped me buy a Craftsman 3" belt sander, Model No. 315.11720 at a pawn shop, then went back to Alaska before he could show me how to put the sandpaper thingie on.

Were you successful in finding an instruction manual for your sander? If so, could you share how you did that?

Thanks for any help!!

Hi,

I'm a retired lady who's kind of handy, and my son-in-law helped me buy an old Craftsman belt sander at a pawn shop because I'm taking about 8,000 coats of paint off my front door.

He went back to Alaska before he could show me how to change the sandpaper belt thing -- do you have a manual you could share?

Thanks for any help.

......with the cord unplugged........use your body to push the sander's FRONT ROLLER against your workbench (or wall or door jamb)......the roller/frame will move and offset.....catching on a pin holding it in the "Open" position......

Install the correct sanding belt .......in the correct direction and tap the front roller on the workbench (or with a mallet).......the roller will release from the pin and automatically tighten.......With the cord plugged in .......use the knurled screw to adjust the belt to run true........

"...measure once.....cut twice....throw that one away and cut a new one...."

Thank you

Take tension off belt by placing front pulley (wheel) against floor or workbench and giving a big push. Replace belt with arrow in clockwise direction. Retension by placing tip of flat headed medium-sized screw driver against the box housing in center (where the ID plate is attached) and the shank of the screwdriver against the horizontal plate that holds the front wheel. Give the plate a push forward and it should snap back into tension mode.

Steve:

Would appreciate it if you could also e-mail me a copy of the manual for the Craftsman hand belt sander (315.11720). Mine appears to have gone AWOL during a PCS sometime between 1975 and the present.

Is there anything you and/or your buddies would like in return (that I can legally mail to an APO, that is)? Let me know an APO address and I'll send a care package.

Thanks again.

I hope this helps. If it does, the only repayment I ask is that you pass the word to friends and family to do what you can to support http://www.opfth.com/ (Operation From the Heart). They gather items needed by the troops in the tough outer FOB locations, and send them out to them. I have friends that after not having a shower for a week received a box of baby-wipes. What a joy to get them at that time!!

Thank you - bless you............

I inherited this model as well and could also use a copy of the manual. rktaylor97@yahoo.com How does one re-engage the front roller tension after installing a new belt? Do you simply pry it back into place with leverage and pressure? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The manual is OTW, however in the mean time to change the belt. Simply hold the sander so that the front wheel is on your work bench. Place pressure on the wheel until it moves in and clicks into a locked position. Once you have new belt on, place a screwdriver between idler pully and support bracket (right side center). Place pressure on idler pulley, pressing towards front of sander. The pressure wheel will click release and spring pressure will return to belt. Hold unit upside down, carefully apply power, and adjust screw on opposite side from where you released the idler pulley - it will adjust tracking in and out from striker bar.

Good luck!

Didn't realize the sander was such an old model but I don't feel like such a doofus for not being able to figure out how to change belts now with so many requests from people more talented than I with tools..I could also use a soft copy[?] of directions if you still have them. thanks

I have this same model (Model #31511720) and you can still get the model 31511721 (one not zero) manual, which is the same - from the sears part website.

Anyone know where you can get the two bearings (insert/sleeve) for the drive, or power axle. Sears has discontinued the part and I need two. Sander is otherwise in fine shape would really hate to have to dump it.

I bought this sander new in 1978 or 79. It has been a workhorse and just now needs a new platen under the belt - the old one wore through in one spot. For those who still want a PDF of the original manual, email me at cm2bdis@gmail.com.

Need to know how to release the front roller after locking it into place. My manual is missing...lost in the divorce!
If anyone has one to down load my email is kcox54@suddenlink.net.

Thanks,

Lay the sander flat on it's left (closed) side. Install a new 3x21 belt with proper grit for project. With the sander still laying flat on it's left side, firmly whack the front roller with a plastic mallet on the right - open side of the roller (driving it towards the ground). that will release the catch and the roller will spring forward into position. If you need to, replace the skid shoe that the belt rides on at this time. As of the date of this post, the skid shoe, belt, springs and a selection of screws are the only parts that Sears still offers.

Link to manual

http://www.shopyourway.com/manuals/19852?brand_name_search=315+11720+belt+sander+manual

just use a screw driver as the manual shows the front wheel pops in place easly... no need to use a hammer

I seem to be a bit late to this thread. Don't know if anyone has the manual in soft copy, but I finally need one and can't find mine anywhere (too many moves, to many years...).

Any help greatly appreciated!

I saw in the blogs that you have a copy of the manual in a PDF. Would you mind sending it to me? I purchased it at a garage sale and need to replace the belt and the sandpaper. My email is kdwtrash@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!

Could someone send a copy of the Owners Manual PDF to me also? I have acquired one of the Craftsman Model 315.11720 belt sanders, but no manual.

Thanks very much, Mike

Hello, I am a widow trying to use my belated husband's craftsman 315 11720 belt sander to get a closet door to close but I can't get the belt on. I watched a youtube video on how to change a belt and then I tried to push the front wheel in like the video showed, but it just snaps back after I push it in. How do I get it to stay released? Thank you all for your help!
