hi last week while using the planer, i could smell hot rubber and after a minute the planer stopped feeding but the motor was still running . i shut it down and after disassembling the right side of the housing i found the cover for the belt housing . when i opened the cover the belt was inside the housing cover. about 3 inches of the belt had delaminated. i was informed by both ereplacement parts and delta that the belt would be available in MARCH!!! i have found some other sites to contact for a belt.
has anyone out there who has this model had this problem? are there any tricks to reinstalling a new belt? any tensioning involved and if so how do i do it?
if you can answer asap i’d really appreciate it. i use this quite often and this is really handicapping me.
thanks to all,
