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.
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.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 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 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.

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