Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible):

A day later and the drum sander feed belt isn’t moving again. This time it looks like it could be a problem with the potentiometer. The drum turns on just fine, but the motor for the belt won’t turn on.

Speed controller was ordered this weekend, and shipping info says it would be delivered today. But… it’s MLK day… so I’m going to guess the shipping info isn’t correct.

If it shows up I’ll try to get it dropped off, otherwise expect the part tomorrow. Also expect a few days for @mgrossbauer or @RealCarlRaymond to get it installed.

Mainly just wanted everyone to know that it’s indeed in the process of being repaired.

@mgrossbauer the part has arrived. I left it on the front tables with your name on it.

New controller was installed last night, but belt is still not working…additional troubleshooting is planned.

Closing this old topic as drum sander was decommissioned. Still looking at replacement options.
