My dust collector and drum sander are on the same circuit with no prior problems. I did, however switched the sander to a different circuit. With no change. I’ve never heard of a thermal switch but makes sense. I’ll try again tomorrow and see what happens. If the red reset button does not reset, or the sander simply does not start what would be my next step…

Also why would the table belt run but not the drum? Could it simply not be getting enough power through the motor to run both? (I know I am now showing my lack of understanding about how motors work. I really should have paid more attention to my dad’s conversations at the dinner table growing up.) thanks for the help.
