for OURAGAN and MISTRAL sanders
The Return spring is a mechanical part that plays an essential role in the sander's wheel height adjustment mechanism. This part is generally located near the wheel adjustment lever.
The role of the return spring is to provide a return force or tension that holds the adjustment lever in position. When the user adjusts the height of the wheels using the lever, the return spring ensures that the lever automatically returns to its original position once released. This keeps the wheels at the set height without the need to hold the lever in position.
The return spring also contributes to the stability of the adjustment mechanism, by maintaining constant pressure on the lever. This ensures that the wheels remain correctly positioned and do not show excessive play during sanding.
When should I consider changing the wheel set return spring?
1. Loss of tension: if the spring loses its tension or return force, the adjustment lever may not automatically return to its original position when released. This can lead to incorrect wheel height adjustment and affect the stability of the adjustment mechanism. If you find that the lever does not return to its normal position or is difficult to manipulate, this may be due to a loss of spring tension. In this case, it is necessary to change the spring to ensure that the adjustment mechanism operates correctly.
2. Damage: shocks, impacts or inappropriate use can damage the return spring, which can compromise its functionality and effectiveness in the wheel height adjustment mechanism.
In conclusion, the wheel suspension return spring is an important mechanical part that ensures the correct operation of the wheel height adjustment mechanism. If you notice any signs of loss of tension or damage to the spring, we recommend that you replace it. Make sure you choose a quality replacement spring guaranteed by Repex Floor. Regular replacement of the return spring will help maintain optimum performance of the belt sander and ensure accurate and stable adjustment of the wheels during sanding.
