what can i do to keep the belt from sliding off the rollers?

what can i do to keep the belt from sliding off the rollers?
Asked by: john
The same thing happened to me when I first turned it on , but I turned the knob on the side all the way the opposite direction and was able to adjust it (while running) to keep the belt right in the correct lineup to the metal bottom plate

why does my belt not stay on even when I am adjusting the screw

I turn the knob while the belt is turning but it will not respond to the adjustment. the belt just runs right off the pulleys. I have model 352vs variable speed 3 " x 21"
Asked by: Ivy
I returned one of these sanders last week because the adjustment knob didn't have a tension spring to keep the knob from backing off. In fact, none of the Porter-Cable 3x21 sanders at my Home Depot had tension springs. Even holding the sander in mid air, as soon as it's turned it on, the knob starts spinning from the motor vibration and the belt comes off.

8 Amp 3 in. x 21 in. Belt Sander is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53.

I've owned this sander for a couple of months and the sanding function has been great. But after a few uses, the filter bag started to come apart right where it connects to the sander. This resulted in sanding dust blowing straight up, usually in my face. I ended up removing the filter bag and buying a radiator hose from NAPA with a 1 3/8" diameter that has a 90 bend on one end. I cut off a hunk and clamped it on. Now it blows to the side, and I can clamp a bag on the end of it if I desire. Porter Cable needs a better solution than what they have. The exiting design does not last. A 90 degree elbow that you can clamp on would definitely be an improvement.

We are refinishing 80-year old hardwood floors that previously had glued-down carpeting. This sander is bringing the surface right down to new looking wood and we are so excited that we were able to save the floors. The belts are easy to install and it has a belt tracking knob to adjust the belt side-to-side. Just as a side note: I am a 69-year old woman, so if I can handle this sander anyone can. I felt that a lighter lower priced sander would have broken down by now, but this sander will probably outlast me.

So far I have no issues (had it about a month now) with the sander itself. I works well for the what I needed a belt sander for except when I goof up. The reason I give it three stars is the bag attachment doesn't seal well with the clamp and when you stop/ start a bunch of sawdust gets blown out around the clamp. If it is pointed just right it blows directly into your face. Also the instructions indicate a vacuum adapter should have been included and none was in the box. I think this would eliminate the bag clamp issue if I could use it with a shop vac instead. Still a good overall product that could use a couple of improvements. Easy to use once you get some experience and changing belts is also a snap. Weight isn't bad. Seems solid but time will tell regarding working parts.

I've been wanting this sander for the last six months and kept waiting for it to go on sale, but it never did. I went ahead and bought one today, and I'm glad I finally did. I got it home and pulled it out of the box. Excellent packaging and it came with a new belt already installed. I can't wait to use it this weekend. Truly a high-quality sander that I'm sure I'll get years of pleasure using on my projects. Thanks Porter Cable and Home Depot! Definitely meets my expectations.

The sander worked great. compared to other portable belt sanders I have used this is definitely a 5 star product from a sending perspective. The dust collecter wasw not very effective, but a quick fashioning of a attachment jig for my shop vac and there was no problem with dust whatso ever.
