i have had this sander for years—have not used it for a number of years, but just started this weekend. does anyone have a quick way of adjusting the belt so it does not wander? i used to play with it and could get it to stay put, but would love to see if anyone has a quick way of adjusting it.

also any ideas on what best to lubricate the thing?

thanks

Is it this vertical belt sander?

I have a 1940s 4X36 horizontal Craftsman and it’s basically just keep adjusting the knob until the belt tracks without wandering. Don’t think there is a ‘quick’ method. Mine has brass bearings and require a drop of oil every usage.
