I’m sorry that you got a bum belt sander.
We’ve shipped thousands of these and have only had 1 come back
because of problems with the quick change collar. When that unit
came back two weeks ago I checked it against the 14 flex shafts I
have in my classroom (4 different manufacturers- ranging from new to
31 years old). I did have a hard time fitting it to the newest
Foredom (and upon inspection the keyed tip of the new Foredom is
slightly different- it has a raise ridge - Looks like a parting line
from a mold) along the key.
I also talked with 3 or 4 folks about hooking up their Sander, and
their issue was that the keyed tip of their flex shafts were not
extended to the proper 3/4", once I talked them through making this
adjustment, the flex shaft fit fine.
Thank you for the heads up with the problem. I will alert my
manufacturer to make sure they are inspecting these carefully. And
it seems it’s time to check the new production units of various flex
shafts to see if we need to adjust our tooling.
If you have any other problems, please contact me. The normal
procedure would be for you to send it back to me and I’d either fix
or replace it, and send it back.
Thank you for your feedback, Scott! We appreciate it very much, as
we want our customers to be more than satisfied with our tools.
We are putting a new gallery page up on the Wolf Tools site- of
pieces done with any of my tools or waxes. If anyone would like to
be included, please email me low rez pics of a few of your pieces
along with your contact
Have a lovely weekend.
