Topic tags/keywords: question open end drum sander

Do any of you own one?

I have a problem with mine and I can’t figure out how to remedy it. The extension spring (# 182 – P0458182) on the right side of the drum head is bent into a banana shape. I got it out and plan to order a new one. The problem is I can’t figure out how to install the new one. By looking at the exploded diagram, I can’t figure it out. Plus it looks like I will need to remove the bearing on the right side of the drum shaft to gain access.

I plan to call tech support tomorrow.

And and all help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike

I have a 458 and when I bought it used it was just like yours. Also the clamp pieces at both ends were broken. I had to totally dismantle it. You will have to take out the bearing, but that’s not terrible to do. Call to order the part and they will help explain what you need to do. I called many times and they talked me thru the process. Very helpful.

Thanks Bill.
I called yesterday and the tech was helpful. He asked about the spring and I had to go investigate. At least I will know more when I call back.

I am having a tough time getting my snap ring pliers on the snap ring that holds the bearing in place. UGH.

Onward and upward.

Mike, does yours have the spring retainer on the fixed pan(185)? I had to replace that part on both ends of my drum. The originals did not have the retainer, which I think lead to the spring problem in the first place.

I had the same snap ring problems. My pliers are missing the set screws that hold the tips in.

Yes it is a flat plate held in place with a cap screw.

Ah, well I guess even with the retainer the spring can still go bad.

It is shaped like a banana. :-(
Headed out on a busy day. I guess I will wait until Monday to call and order it.

Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.
