Topic tags/keywords: question

Does anyone know how to remove the drum form a Craftsman drum sander model 351.215680? A spring (part number 22177.00) came loose and is sticking out of the side hole on the drum.

Looks like a cap screw came out of the drum. I’m looking at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/351215680/0247/0743000.html

The spring is damaged and I believe the drum is going to have to come out to replace it.

Wow Glen. That looks just like my Grizzly. I have the same problem with the spring disfigured on the outboard end of the drum. I have a new one but can’t figure out how to replace the spring. It appears I have to remove the shaft bearing in order to gain access. But, I haven’t been able to remove the snap ring that holds the bearing in place. For now, I have given up until I get more time and patience.

Hey Mike, I searched the internet for videos on how to remove the drum and replace the spring and have not been able to find anything. If you or anyone on lumberjocks ever finds a way to solve this problem please let me know. I hope I don’t have to sell the thing on Craigslist (as is) or take it to the local scrap metal shop in my town and sell it to them, but I will if I can’t get it fixed. It’s useless right now.

When I get serious about the repair, I will be calling Grizzly tech support for some guidance. If successful, I will post up.
