Edwin: I also have the same sander which I bought too many years ago to admit. Devann nailed the adjustment right on, You need to make very fine adjustments while the machine is running. The first time I adjusted the belt I tore up the dust port. The belt cut right thru the plastic. I only use mine for edge sanding and sanding parts that are too small for the drum sander.
I have got a lot of use out of this machine thru the years and it still works fine. I buy all my belts from Industrial Supply. They are very nice people to deal with. You can find them and other dealers on the web. By the way, just tension the belts just enough that they will not slip while sanding. You will get longer life out of the belts and releave pressure on the bearings.
