Panel sander/drum sander belts

The current belts on the drum sander are damaged/worn/full of glue. I will replace them, but I would like to speak with the person responsible to avoid this happening in the future. The belts are somewhat costly. Please, don’t feel it is necessary to contact me on the talk site, but contact me privately.

Is there an outline on what kind of things to avoid on the drum sander? I want to get checked out soon.

@cafwood I am working on some one-page quick reference guides to post for many tools and especially ones that don’t have SOPs. I’ll send the ones I have for the sanders by the end of this week for you to look over/approve.
