Belt sander slipping
Jun 22nd, 2013 at 8:02pm
 
I have a Makita 75mm belt sander.
The last lot of belts are all a fraction too big which means that they slip .
Has anyone on here tried to increase the diameter of the rollers to combat this ?

Any help appreciated

I've never tried it, but maybe a layer or two of duct tape around the rollers might work.

And the thickness added would need to be exactly the same from side to side or the belt will walk off the roller.
