Default Jet 16-32 problem

While changing the sanding belt, I tried to use the tool to hold the right hand sanding belt clamp open, and somehow broke the clamp loose ....The only way, I see, to fix it is to remove the drum....
I hate to just tear into it without checking with you guys to see if any of you
have any experience fixing this problem....

Sorry to hear about that. I never broke the clamp, even though it was a big pita to get tight. But I can see your dilemma on how to get at the clip to fix it. You might contact Jet and see if they have any suggestions. In fact I have a SuperMax now and they are the same set up. If Jet doesn't respond maybe the Supermax people can help, they are good people and the original owners and designers of the Jet are the ones who started and designed SuperMax. Laguna is their owner now.

Kurt...

Is it possible that a single flat head machine screw is what holds the "inboard take up fastener" in place?

I just went out with a dental mirror, and it
looks like the pin that goes thru the spring
is out out of one side .... Donít see anything
broke....
But thereís no way to fix it without taking
the drum out ....

Isn't the drum hollow? Couldn't you lossen up the holder, fish it thru the other end? I have a Ryobi 16/32 and the drums look identical.

plan B: coud you fit a needle nose pliar in and get ahold of the spring to reposition?

Kurt, call Jet for advice. I have called them in the past and they are helpful. They are about 20 miles from so if you have a problem with them I will go and whack them on the head.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I (we) think we have it figured out ....
I called in my engineer better half to look at it.
She wanted to look at the exploded view in the
manual.... Looks like the little bolt that shows
on the surface of the drum is the only thing
that secures the clamp ..... If I can get needle
nose pliers, or something, on the nut underneath,
I think I can get it out, fix it, and reinstall it ....

Haven't had the same problem as you but I have dismantled mine a few time for maintenance. It's just a matter of time & patience with the disassembly and re-assembly process. Parts should be easy to come by. Maybe it's just me but I enjoy the process. I learned patience from years or rebuilding Classic aircraft. You never rush maintenance on something that might kill you if done wrong.

I got the clamp mounting bolt out, but thereís not
enough clearance around the drum and the frame to
remove the clamp.....
Looks like I just need to back out the set screw that
locks the key to the shaft on the motor side, and the drum
can slide to the left enough to get the clamp out.... I hope....

Good suggestion ..... I was able to hook a wire to it and pull thru to the other
end of the drum.... Lots of room to get it out on that side....
The end of pin that goes thru the small spring is broken ....

Ordered a new one from Ereplacementparts website.... $18.82 .....
