Slotted shaft M10/150 flat
for OURAGAN PLO sander
The Slotted shaft M10/150 flat is an essential mechanical part of the sander's wheel height adjustment mechanism. This spindle is located on the wheel support lever and plays a crucial role in adjusting the height of the wheels.
The role of the slotted spindle is to facilitate the vertical movement of the wheels when it is operated by the adjustment lever. By turning the slotted spindle, the user can raise or lower the sander wheels to set the desired sanding height. This allows the sander to be adapted to different thicknesses of material or surfaces, which is essential for accurate and uniform sanding.
The slot rod is usually designed with a slot or notch along its length, which allows the wheel support lever to move vertically. When the lever is operated, the slotted rod transmits the movement to the wheels, raising or lowering them accordingly.
When should I consider changing the slotted spindle?
1. Wear: like any moving mechanical part, the slot rod can wear out over time and after regular use. If you notice that the rod is showing signs of wear, such as deformation, cracks or malfunctioning of the adjustment mechanism, it's time to replace it.
2. Difficulty of adjustment: if the slotted spindle becomes difficult to turn or handle, this may result in inadequate adjustment of the wheel height. This could affect the quality of sanding by making it difficult to accurately set the desired sanding depth.
3. Damage: shocks or impacts can damage the slotted spindle, compromising its operation and preventing proper adjustment of the wheel height.
In conclusion, the slotted spindle of the wheel set plays an essential role in adjusting the height of the wheels for precise sanding adapted to the surface to be treated. If you notice any signs of wear, difficulty adjusting or damage to the slot spindle, we recommend that you replace it. Make sure you choose a quality replacement rod guaranteed by Repex Floor. Replacing the slot rod will help maintain the belt sander's optimum performance and ensure quality sanding results on all surfaces.
