Q:

How to change drive (v) belt on Craftsman 6 x 48" Belt, 9" Disc Sander Model 351.217570 351.217570

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the sander. I know it can be tricky to replace the belt on these sanders. I will be happy to assist you. First, unplug the unit from the outlet. Then remove the disc side table and dust cover. As if, you were going to replace the sanding disc. Then look for a notch in the dust cover behind the aluminum disc. Once you find the notch, turn the disc until you see the setscrew or screws securing the disc to the shaft. Use a long allen wrench to loosen the setscrews. Then the disc should slide off the shaft. After it is removed, take out the screws securing the dust chute. This will expose the impeller. Remove the bolt securing the impeller and slide it off the shaft. Once the impeller is removed, I think you can replace the belt. Just walk the new belt onto the pulleys and check the tension. If it is tight, go ahead and reassemble the sander in the reverse order.

 

 

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

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

We don't have a manual or video for replacing the dust shroud on your sander.

I have contacted the company that built the sander for Sears. They are trying to put something together to help you replace the dust shroud. This will be a fairly large job. You will have to take the sander apart from both sides to remove and replace the dust shroud.

I will contact you by email with whatever information I can get.

If you have questions, you can reply on the bottom of this thread. I will be glad to help.

I'm having trouble with a similar issue regarding 351.217570 in that I'm trying to remove the 9 inch aluminum disc to repair shroud, but can't tell if it should be pulled off with a puller or what. Would appreciate help with this, would like to replace the bearing and sleeve on the drive axel. I have got the bearing opposite the disc removed and replaced already. Can you put me in contact with someone that has remove the disk. Thanks, rob

The aluminum disc is secured to the shaft with one or two set screws. Look on the parts diagram and you will see the set screw (item 2). Look behind the 9 inch disc for a hole in the lip on the dust chute (item 12). You need to line the set screw up with this hole so you can loosen it with an allen wrench. Check for a second set screw also.

Jimmy, I found and loosened the set screw to the disk, there were two on mine. But the disk is stuck, I gave the disk a couple of sacks but didn't budge. I'm going to place 2, #6 X 1.0 X 45mm bolts in the holes either side if the drive axel hole in the disk and see if I can break it loose. Thanks Rob

Thanks for replying Rob. If you can spray some WD40 or some rust buster into the holes the set screws were in, that will help loosen the disc also.

Jimmy, I was able to get the disk off finally. I did add some WD-40 and let it sit before applying a puller to the bolts I mentioned earlier. When it didn't come loose I decided I didn't want to pull too hard on the bolts screwed into the aluminum disk. So i heat up the disk around the axel shaft with a small propane torch and then used the puller. This worked perfectly and I only heated it for about 30 seconds. This unit had been neglected, but with the new bearings I should get alot of use out of the sander. Having taken the machine completely apart I am pleased with the build quality and part availability. Thanks for your help Jimmy- cheers, rob

I am having a similar issue with this same model. Even with using the diagrams I have not been able to remove the dust shroud, I have taken apart everything I can get to and still no success. I'm not sure if I need to remove the disc or not, but if I do I have located/ lined-up the set screws, but have not been able to get them loose. Any information or help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Steve, as you can tell by the posts above, it is a difficult job to remove the dust shroud. You do have to remove the aluminum disc to remove the dust shroud. Reply if you need more help.

Thank you for your question.

I have pulled up the model you have submitted. The disk is aluminum. I have searched for the arbor size but it is not listed. I will try to find the shaft on Monday when the manufacture is open. If you need to know the shaft size quicker, you can remove disk and measuring the shaft.

Please let me know if you come up with the shaft size before I do.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
