If my previous post won't get you a manual, I don't know what will. I can find manuals on about every sander known, including John Deere. Didn't know John Deere made sanders, but apparently so. Best I can come up with just now is get a manual for something that looks close to yours. Should give you what you need, hopefully. Seems a lot of people are looking for various Reliant manuals, but the only one that claimed success was to the link I posted. Oh yes, the manuals I ran across were PDF, but none Reliant anything. But, I'm curious now, so will try some more.

Default Reliant DD126

My son has a Reliant belt/disc sander DD126. The motor quit and he can't read the tag on the motor . Can you read the tag on yours? Need to know HP. amp. and rpm. He doesn't have an owners manual either. Sure would like to find a manual with parts break down/list.

I looked for my manual today and found some others that I didn't remember, but did not find a manual for mythe sander. I always keep my manuals in the same location, so I'm wondering if I even got a manual with my sander. Taiwanese tools never came with very much in their manuals anyway.

I think his is very similar to what you have, and all of the 12" I have found have a 6"X48" belt as standard, as was mentioned above.

It's a Delta but that''s about all I know. It was purchased by my grandfather when he was was fairly young and my dad ended up with it. Here are some pics, sorry about the rotated ones. I can't get them to stop doing that for some reason.

It looks pretty similar. Mine is 1 1/2 hp, but otherwise it seems dead on. Thank you.

I'm going on 69 and that drill press was made well before I was born. It needs a new belt but they are generic, they go by length, width across the top flat, and whether they are V, flat, ribbed, etc. An industrial supply store would be able to fix you up with a new one. The reason the belt is crossed in a figure 8 direction may be 2 fold. First is to control pulley rotation direction. That was a common way to reverse motor direction back then. It may also be crossed to increase friction of the belt on the pulley to keep it from slipping. In order to tighten the belt you loosen that nut on the head and lift the head up until the belt is tight and then tighten the nut back down to hold the head at that height. That may be a 2 person job. It doesn't look like there is a crank to move it up and down with so one person may need to lift while the other handles the nut. However, there may also be some adjustment at the pulleys. I just can't be sure from those pictures.

There are no bells and whistles there but it should still drill holes and it may have some value as a collectors item.

My son has a Reliant DD126 also. The motor stopped working and he can't read the motor tag except for it is 1 1/2 hp. We need to know the motor rpm. Does the motor tag on your sander list the motor rpm.? I've tried to find a manual also with no luck.

Thanks, Roy

I consider it really cool to have an old tool, that you can actually use. Looks like replace the belt, possibly the motor, and should be good to go. And then use it. But, if for whatever reason it actually is not in condition to use, I would likely just try to find a collector who would buy it - they don't use their tools anyway. Or, if it won't work, you might just want to set it somewhere out of the way, but still in sight, and just keep it. I'm undecided if I would do that, or try to sell it. Cool machine, regardless. Ah, if I had the room, and it didn't work, I'd keep it, even if it was just to hang my hat on.
