Q:

Hoow do I replace the sanding belt on this model 149-22640 14922640 Craftsman Craftsman sander

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I looked up the model number you submitted. Wow this an old sander. Due to the age of the unit, we no longer have the manual for the sander. I looked at the parts list to determine how to replace the belt. To loosen the belt you need to loosen the thumbnuts on each side of the front roller. This will loosen the belt. Next, you have to determine how to slide the belt off the unit. Looking at the parts list it looks as if the unit needs to be disassembled to replace the belt. Before taking the whole thing apart, I recommend removing the drive belt. Then try to lift the sanding belt table out of the base frame. It looks like it should lift off. Once you have it removed, you can slide the old belt off and install the new belt. Once you have the unit reassembled, tighten the thumbnut to tension the belt. Then turn the driveshaft by hand and watch the belt tracing. If the belt starts moving to one side, go ahead and tighten the thumbnut on the side the belt is moving towards. This should cause the belt to move towards the center. After you have the belt tracking in the center of the table, you can reinstall the drive belt and check the operation.

 

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Hello, I too have a sander - old - inherited. And Im trying to make it useful. it is the same number as you listed, but sold by sears Roebyck & Co - USA Model Number 149.22640. I was successful in mounting a new sanding belt. But I am having trouble adjusting the rollers so that it does not drift from side to side. Then when I had it almost centered, the Rubber band that is on the roller on the pully end busted. Yikes. SOoo I am asking about parts. Where do i get rubber to replace that which covered the roller? ALSO the adjusting screws on the other roller - one is bent so while im at it i might as well replace them. Any idea where to get these parts?? Thanks Sue/

Susan, I suspect the rubber on the roller is dry and brittle. I am sorry the rubber bands are no longer available I checked other sources for the bands but I did not have any luck. You can try to use rubber take to cover the roller. Rubber tape is used to grip the sanding belt. As for the adjusting bolts, they are no longer available. Those you should be able to fine them at a local hardware store. They are just eye bolts. I recommend taking one off the sander and bring with you to the store to match it up. I wish you luck in the repair. Please let me know if this works. Thanks Mark.
