I owned this for 20 years, I have no idea who the manufacturer was.
I sold it about 3 weeks ago.
But I still don’t know who made it.

I had 2×72 belts on it and made a edge sander out of it.

It’s from the glass industry. Dayton made the motor and have nothing to do with the sander. It’s sold so why do you care????? I’ve seen other similar sanders from defunct companies. Most likely the company is out of business. Let it go…

I have a Delta Rockwell that looks a little like that. It sits on a workbench in a verticle position and uses a 1×42” belt. It has a table about 8×8 that’s adjustable table for sanding things at angles.
Have you ever used that 3rd wheel for belt tension? That’s what it’s there for. My belts would flop around like crazy, but that’s the nature of that littlle beast…...
Your sander might have started off as a Delta and then adapted to a specific use. The Dayton motor is exactly what it is, a Dayton motor. It might have nothing to do with who manufactured that sander, unless it was manufactured and sold by Grainger. I have about 4 Dayton motors that I put on different machinery I have. ................

I’m sorry Rick, but if we humans let things go, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Couriosity is the mother of all inventions.

Curiousity killed the cat, satisfaction brought him back. Necessity is the mother of invention, practicality is the father!!!!!!

At least get the quotes right…

It’s from the glass industry…focus on that for searching.

Without a name plate it could be one of half a dozen companies so there is no 100% of finding out who was the original maker. I was recently looking at a similar machine on my local craigslist and it was green. No maker was listed and the seller never replied back. The seller had it with auto glass tools and I found a similar machine at CR Laurence. How much more helpful can I be?????? At least I narrowed it down. It’s not a woodworking sander. 45 years in commercial shops there is no use for a sander like that.

Letting go can keep your sanity. Not letting go in certain cases will do more damage…

“if we humans let things go, we wouldn’t be where we are today. ” No evidence of that statement!!!!!
Sometimes yes and sometiimes no, never all the time.

Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb?
How many sides to a mobius strip?
How many licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
Does your chewing gum lose it’s flavor on the bedpost overnight?
Who knows what evil lurks within the hearts of men?

Keep asking questions, it can’t hurt and you might find someone who can give you a clue.

I have been looking for some information on a product that was made in the 1950’s, not wood working related so I won’t mention what it is.

Hi Jerry

That 3rd wheel is fixed, the arm is spring loaded and floats.
I never used that back wheel,I had 2’’ belts made for it made a stand for it and it became my edge sander for a long time. I was a poor little wood worker back then.
