I bought one of those for about $60 over 15 years ago, new.

If mine ever gets to the needs new anything stage, it will go into the blue can.

It's a belt/disc sander. It could be a 4" x 36" or a 6" x 48" belt, and a 6" to 12" disc. There are several brands of those machines. The table can be mounted for the belt or the disc, and can have an adjustment capability to be set at varying degrees to the disc or the belt. The belt mechanism can be set flat (as in your picture) or stood up vertical.

Is that what you were asking "What am I?"

My thoughts exactly. The poster does not know what he bought.

Lol I know what it's called, how to operate it.

I'm attempting to ID it so I can find parts. It works fine except the belt wonders due to a bad bearing on the non-drive hub.

Remove the bearing, it should have a number, match it up with a replacement. :smile:

bad bearings?

If mine needed new bearings, I have a similar one, 4 x 36 I would just pop them out, take them to a bearing supply place and get replacements. Bearings for the most part are standard dimensions and they cross reference all the time from different manufacturers. Just get the sealed types, not open type for your dusty conditions. :yes:

Yours most likely will have a 1/2" or 5/8" shaft or inner diameter size.
Probably something around 1 1/2" or 1 /5/8" outer diameter...just guessin'

If you said "What brand", might have been simpler. It may not be a bearing. There are things to check first before going that route. There should be a tracking knob for the belt. That might just need adjustment. You could also check for debris under the belt or on the rollers, which could bear on the belt causing it to pitch to one side or the other. The belt itself could be old and out of whack.

You know I feel so stupid. I didn't think about looking for generic bearings of the same size. I do that for everything else. :so dumb:

I wanted to know the model so I could order parts for it from my parts store online. I got so focused on ordering from there I didn't step back and think about my options.

It was only $20 at a yard sale. It's served me well for the few months. :shrug:

I adjusted the thumb screw to get it on track but the bearing has collapsed and has allowed the drum to get all out of wack.
