So long as the blade is not adjusted a parralel gib slide is now made and just requires honing in. If you still not with me, im not good at explaining myself, maybe a diagram may help explain better.

You are right though, sharpening drill bits would be easier if nothing else.
If the glue doesn't hold, then soft solder and when finished sweat it off.

None of this lead free solder- I add!

Well i polished up the gibs and set the compound.The cross slide had a well fitting gib and i had already fitted additional screws so it was just a case of
resetting etc.The carriage was the big problem so had to take a few thou off
the front gib plate and reset.Everything is now A OK .I wonder how long it will last.One thing did surface.The front carriage gib plate can only be adjusted
when the whole assy is diassembled however on the first photo i have highlighted with a sharpie that on this model the 2 end studs could be drilled
thru the carriage with fixings on the top,making it much easier to set and
perhaps be used as a carriage lock.If i lose the settings and have to strip down
again i might try it.Also made a quick change alum chip tray.My dormant
sheetmetal work skills came to the fore.Brought back memories of over
50 years ago at trade school when the exams were to develope and make
things like water jugs and milk churns from tin plate. Wish i could go back

I like the chip tray idea

Also if you could find the thread on the sander that would be helpful to me I haven't fully got to grips with the site just yet

The 'English' version of the belt sander becomes available from time to time at either Lidl or Aldi and probably cheaper than generally available from other suppliers.

In all.it is not too bad although a bit flimsy on the rests. I usually buy the various grades of grit belts and put them into stock. I have one and simply have learned to live with its foibles.

With a bit of 'judicious jiggling', I'm assured that grinding hss tooling is possible.

I'm sort of happy to use one often because I forget where I put my files! The shame of it all!!!!

The Clark branded version is sold by machinery mart in the UK
I bought one here in OZ for $70 for woodworking,for quickly and
accurately squaring end grain on timber for dowelling joints
The sander is very cheaply made in some areas like the mini lathe
but has the potential to mod to a high standard as the 7x lathe
The driven roller is on plastic bushes and quickly wear out,my first mod
was to make brass bushes,but lubrication is difficult so fitted cheap skate bearings.Also made a dedicated stand and increased the 6" disc size to 9"
to accept velcro fitting discs. The things i can do with it in metal and wood
you would not believe.Worth its weight in gold.If it blew up tomorrow i
would go out and buy another even at twice the price.Sharpening tooling etc
And heavy filing is a thing of the past.I will resurect the thread and post more
photos
