Default Looking for Reliant dd 126 manual

My father just gave me a Reliant dd 126 belt/disc sander. I can't find any information on it though. It have a 12" disc if that helps. (photo included)

Thank you!

I have a slightly smaller Reliant sander. Not exactly the same, but it may help if I can find the manual for it and send it. Mine didn't come with the stand I'll look for the manual tomorrow when I'm back in the shop.

Is there something in particular you needed to know about it Nell?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

If you are looking for a belt, I bet it takes a 6" X 48" belt.

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

Reliant branded tools were sold by a Boston based woodworking supply company called Trend Lines. They had quite a few stores in the North East part of the US as well as a catalog sales business, but they closed their doors sometime back about 1998. Their Reliant brand tools were all Taiwan built and very similar to many other Taiwan made woodworking tools on the market at that time, so many parts for other brands of similar Taiwan made tools will likely fit, no matter the tool color or brand name. It's quite likely that all of these tools came from the same tool manufacturer in Taiwan and just painted or branded differently depending on what their US customer wanted.

If it's parts that you need for your sander, look at other brand names of the same sander and the possibility of ordering parts for that brand name sander. They will very likely be a perfect fit. I own a Reliant 18" band saw and may need to do this same thing some day. My first search would be Grizzly Tools or Shop Fox to see if their tool looked the same as mine. Woodtek is another brand name of Taiwan made tools that are sold through Woodworkers Supply. They might also be of help in finding the needed part.

I read that they were regional and there were other brands but I didn't know what they were. Thank you! I'll try looking that up! I dont need parts, aside from the actual sand paper. I just wanted to read it to make sure I was adjusting it correctly because my dad doesn't remember the details of how that's done. It seems pretty self eplainatory but I like to read the manual just to make sure I don't miss anything.
I don't know why but I always end up with the most obscure machines. It's weird.
I'm still looking for information on a Delta drill press that was made before they put serial numbers on them if you know anything about those! You seem pretty knoweldgable.

I just wanted to go through how to adjust it. It seems self eplainatory but I wanted to make sure I wasn't inadvertantly missing anything. My dad doesn't remember the specifics because he rarely used it. I don't know what he did with all the manuals he had. I think he ate them because the router he gave me doesn't have one either. That one was easier to find luckily.

My father in law didn't read very well so he saw little value in keeping the manuals for his machines whereas I probably have the manuals for machines I don't even have any more.

What size drill press do you have Nell and is it a floor model or bench type? I have the 16 1/2 inch floor model. A picture might help too.
