I was using the belt sander to take some paint off wood boards today and it stopped working. Basically when you pull the trigger you can hear the motor spin but the wheels don’t turn round n’ round and the belt doesn’t move. The thing was getting fairly hot before it stopped working and I probably should have heeded that and given it a rest but I goofed. So seemingly an overuse-type injury? I left it on the table to the right of the table saw with a note.
I don’t know anything about fixing it and would be very grateful if anyone could give me some guidance.
