I have searched for suppliers of rubber conveyor belts to replace the sandpaper belt on a Jet 10-20 sander and found one reference to Hamilton Tool Supply. I contacted them and they have nothing.

Has anyone found a source for an alternative conveyor belt to replace the sanding belt conveyor that comes standard on the Jet drum sanders?

i am at my wits end trying to make the conveyor belt track properly on my 10-20. This appears to be an all too common problem on all the Jet drum sanders. Anyone with “The magic Solution”?

Thanks,

Roger in Texas

Roger, I have that sander and the same tracking problems you have. I don’t think the rubber conveyer belt will help at all. I cut those stupid little “wrench adjustors” off and keep a T handled Allen wrench handy to adjust tracking every few minutes. Not a cure but a lot quicker/easier to adjust then using those “wrench thingys”. Jet tech support was no help in fixing this problem.
