Hi everybody
I’m new here, but not new to woodworking or tools, however….....just today I feel as though I am new to tools. I bought a used Stanley belt sander, model 90496, and I have no idea how to change the belt on it. Every other sander I’ve owned has had a quick release lever, but this has nothing. I don’t have the manual so I cannot figure it out.
This is the sander “”
If anybody knows how to change it, either with this sander, or any sander that doesn’t have a quick release lever, could you please tell me – I’m getting desperate to change this belt.

Thanks in advance

Ahh thanks. That worked. It was quite tough the first time, but now I’ve done it a few times it seems to easier to push in and release.
Thanks alot.

Have your say...
