    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know why my belts keep fraying and are spat out by my belt sander? The sander is an old orebro so I know it will need a service but is there a quick fix for this?

    Pics supplied, any help greatly appreciated

    Out of adjustment. I would think there is an adjustment screw or knob on there.

    Thanks Darius. I’ve ended up having to take the machine to be serviced as It’s causing more work for me.
