Break/fix/break/fix…

One of the more ‘fun’ tasks at the hackerspace is maintenance and repair.   A couple weeks ago someone broke the big belt/disc sander combo.  Turns out it uses fairly common 6″ x 40″ belts… that for some reason are totally hard to find.   I finally got a few from Harbor Freight, and fixed the tool.   Ah, the smell of fresh sandpaper in the evening!
