Q:

Belt sander 315.117130 drive wheel comes off 315.117130

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the belt sander. I looked up the model number you submitted. I am not quite sure if the drum is coming off the shaft or if the drum and shaft assembly are coming out of the housing.  If the drum is coming off the shaft, you will need to replace the drum and shaft assembly. The reason is it looks like the drum is pressed onto the shaft. The part number for the assembly is 999942-001 and can be ordered from the following link. Drum and shaft assembly for a Craftsman belt sander model 315117130.

If the drum and shaft assembly is coming out of the housing I suspect the retaining ring on the gear side of the shaft has come off. To access the retaining ring you need to remove the belt cover and drive gear. Then remove the gear housing cover. Once it is removed you will see the end of the shaft. The image below shows the parts break down for your sander.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

How to install a new spring in the yoke of model 315.117130 belt sander? The new spring has a straight shank.

A:

The correct part number for the spring on the yoke is 998371-001. This part number does not change and the spring should be exactly the same as the old spring.

We might have gotten some wrong parts in the bin at the factory. Reorder the spring and tell the agents at Sears Parts Direct about the problem. The phone number for Sears Parts Direct is 1-800-252-1698.

No it's true there is no way to attach the straight shaft to the sander. No one at Sears is able to help, refered me to Ryobi motor products as the original manufacturer of the sander, they said it was not theirs, refered me to Emerson who was no help. I may try to find a die set that fits the shaft and give the end a few threads, place the shaft through the bottom attactment and locktite on a small nut to hold the shaft in place. Wish me luck. Sears HAS dropped the ball on this one. Sad to see an icon fall so far.

Thank you for your question on the spring and rod for the belt sander.

It is not flattened on the end until you install it and flatten the end of the rod.

This is a little tricky and you will have to have the roller yoke out of the sander so you can pinch it in a vise and flatten or pin the end of the shaft.
