Re: I am out of patience!

I have been waiting since November 12th for an oscillating drum sander. This is why I always buy used form EBAY. I have been on hold for 45 minutes no one works at this company anymore. There is no way I would order a MArk 7 from them, I'd buy it second hand but this company has to be about finished...

Re: Idler drum on Belt sander loose

The entire drum moves when no belt is on can slide forward and back. I believe this is normal. So what I did was try and clean the idler drum. It has old grease in it. I did not take it down to pulling the shaft out in fear I would damage the spring. I used some PB BLASTER brand White Lithium grease...

Re: Belt Sander Idler Drum

gentlemen, I have watched Nick's Video and I am confused what end of the spring do you want to remove the Roll Pin to get the shaft to come out? The end that the Tension knob connects to?

I believe my unit just needs a good cleaning probably never been done.

Re: Thread locker on DC3300 Dust collector fan to motor bolt?

I wanted to fill everyone in on the Thread type on the motor. It is standard thread righty tighty lefty loosey! I had to put new seals on the newly acquired DC3300. This time the motor bolt came right off no real problem. I am thinking the previous owner of the first one I acquired used red thread l...

Idler drum on Belt sander loose

I purchased a used belt sander a year ago. I used it for several hours without issue with the belt it came with. I also purchased some non shopsmith belts and used a 120 grit for probably 2 hours. Now I have a problem. When i put a belt on and start the machine the tension knob pops and the belt los...

Re: Thread locker on DC3300 Dust collector fan to motor bolt?

br549, I did indeed buy that dust collector as it was a good deal. Not sure if I will mess with the old one.The the first one seems and the new one both want to accumulate saw dust in the motor. That is why I took off the fan for those wondering. However, this one came with 2 dust hoods which was a ...

Re: Thread locker on DC3300 Dust collector fan to motor bolt?

The dust collector seals had worn so I decided to clean it out good. I was just loosening the bolt and it managed to shear off.....rather disappointed that it did. Basically it looks like the dust collect is junk now. Looking for a motor for it.....was disappointed the motor said made in Mexico...so...

Thread locker on DC3300 Dust collector fan to motor bolt?

I recently was cleaning my DC3300 I got second hand. It ran well. However, it was blowing wood chips out the rear exhaust. I replaced all the seals and decided to blow out the motor good. I tried to remove the bolt that holds the fan onto the motor shaft, and it sheared off to my amazement . The par...
