I have no idea of the correct place to post this repair of my ENCO 6 x 48" Belt Sander. When it arrived, nearly every part was dented & the main brace was broken into two parts. I was already aware that replacement parts from Grizzly can take 6 months. I really did not care to find out what hassle a warrantee claim with ENCO might be. The broken part, to my way of thinking is inferior. Instead, I made my own. The only tools needed were a band saw, rotary table & mill. 20150802 002.jpg 20151104 004.jpg 20160315 001.jpg 20160826 034.jpg 20160826 039.jpg 20160902 008.jpg

Easier to replace the part than deal with warranty returns.
Great upgrade to a new tool........too bad it was required!

On to the 2nd weakest link. Pics for now - very frustrated. 1st day not walking on a cane in 4 months - still injections & physical therapy are needed. So, I assess what the order I need to pick up where I left off should be & snap the tool rest while truing up a scraper. Aghhhhhhhh. Well, it won't be any different from the main support when I replace it: Stronger better & possibly even prettier! Might even have to add a dedicated circuit breaker - incase something else wedges up under it ;-)

Sorry for the trouble your having to go thru (medical and otherwise!).

Looks like the machine was build from uncooked pasta!
