    I was given a HF 4 x 36 belt sander and now I know why it will not track properly. Later I upgraded to the 6 x 48 for larger work. Good info sir.

    It looks like they dropped the motor in the factory and bent the shaft.
    Nice job of taking a preassembled kit and repairing it!
    I know there is a lot of effort to film and edit, thanks for sharing.
