Re: Disaster when changing the poly v belt

I will move this thread to "Maintenance and Repair" if someone would tell me how to do that. I mounted the sanding disk and manually turned the system and control dial to slow speed. I turned on the motor and the belts started turning but soon began to smoke. I immediately shut the motor o...

Disaster when changing the poly v belt

I just changed my poly v belt and drive belt on my SS 520. Total disaster. I had great trouble getting the poly v belt to slide over the drive assembly and seat properly on the ribbed porton of the drive assembly. I also installed a new drive belt. After getting everything installed and put together...

The exploded diagram of the headstock on page B-6 of the Shopsmith Instruction manual shows it to be Ref No. 55 with a part # of 504170. However when I put that number in the product index search...

My jointer problems have been fixed!!!! The problem with the jointer stopping or slowing down in the middle of the cut was caused by the lower hub ( that drives the coupler) was loose and was slipping causing the jointer to slow down or stop. Simply tightening the set screw was all that was needed. ...

After running test pieces through the jointer, the vibration seems to have smoothed out. I got nice clean edges but the edge is not 100% square with the face. I guess this is due to the knives not being set exactly the same depth. Bill, the reference you sent in your post does not show the sawdust ...
