hi James...
make sure the belt is running the correct direction... see inside for the belt for the arrow...
put on a virgin belt or one that is known to track straight...
the belt may be loaded to one side or unequally stretched from overuse... Also, cheaper models of sanding belts are notorious for tracking after only limited use.... cheap belt can come w/ issues right out of the box... the belt may be stretched on one side.. coarse grit may be an issue or if half the belt is finer than the other half...
clean the rollers, adjustment mechanism and the shoe... make sure the idler wheel isn't loose...
check the roller bearings... one of rollers, most likely the idler wheel may be tilted out of alignment...
check coplaner of the idler and drive wheel..
