I was able to grab a Ryobi WDS1600 drum sander for a VERY reasonable price. Everything works well on it, but it has an annoying tracking problem on the feed belt. This is the reason the previous owner wanted it gone.

I have found a couple things wrong, one of the roller brackets was bent, and the adjusting springs were missing. I am experimenting with some aftermarket springs, trying to dial in on a good amount of tension.

I have most of the tracking resolved, but it will still walk from one side to the other after a while.

Has anybody else played with the Ryobi or Steel City drum sanders and had a similar issue that they have resolved?
