Checked trying to hold the wood off the table and it still kicked back and there is like a slapping sound. Also checked the table to square with the sanding base plate which the Abranet Mesh rides on . Using a square against my Incra miter Fence and table with the square to the the plate over which the Abranet rides and it is square. I have 5/32 space on each end between the ends of the table and the belt.
So maybe the problem is the space between the table and the belt since it said it shouldn’t be more than 1/16 of an inch. However that doesn’t explain why I get a pushing back and forth and a slapping sound when I try holding the wood to the belt above the table.
Just has me stumped completely.
Maybe I should try a regular type of 6×48 sanding belt. When I got the belt sander the belt on it was shot so I changed it to an Abranet Mesh belt and immediately starting having this problem.
