Default King Canada 706L belt/disc sander info

Hi Guys,

I've just acquired this belt/disc sander, but after an exhaustive search on the net I cannot find anything about the specs of the machine or a user manual.
I found a parts manual but that's all....I'm shooting in the dark here hoping someone might either have one or knows where I should look?

Thanks,

Simon

What are you looking for, parts, or information?
Those machines are basically for wood, but I have one that I use for metal. They are too slow a belt speed for metal use, but I use mine alot for metal grinding. That is, until I get round to making a better one.

I would be surprised if there is any parts source for them. Bearings are off the shelf from a bearing supply, belts too. Pulley on mine was 15 mm bastard size so as it was the one thing I had to replace when I got it, I had to buy a reamer for 15mm.

Those cheap 6" x 48" belt sanders are everywhere. Like Gerry says they "work" for metal but they're really designed for wood. We have a Grizzly G1276 sander which is a much heavier duty machine but Grizzly still lists it as a woodworking tool. It does a pretty good job on metal--we've sanded a lot of stuff on it over the years.

As to a manual how about this?

First thing that popped up when I Googled it. I can't see needing a manual, though. Not much to running one of those things...

Thanks guys...
I had found the manual you refer to, but it's simply a parts manual...I am mainly interested in finding out what the HP of the motor on this model is, as it's not listed on the machine or in the parts manual.

there should be a tag on the machine stating volte and amps post those and we can tell you the motor HP.

I found a KMS listing that indicates 1 HP by searching

Powerful 1 HP motor
Quick belt release lever for easy replacement
Heavy duty cast-iron construction
Two 2-1/2” dust chutes with 2-1/2” to 4” adaptor for dust collector hook-up
Belt platen is covered by a graphite pad which reduces friction

Thanks Terry, but the KMS listing is for the 760....not the 706

The volts and amps listed on the machine are:
Volts: 110/220
Amps: 8.5/4.3
60hertz

8.5 x 110 = 935 watts
745.69 watts per h.p.
935 / 745.69 = 1.25 HP ?

None of the King tools I have looked at had "normal " motor ratings . I expect that the motors are not designed to the same specifications we use and may well be lower efficiency.

The 760 lists a 1 hp motor at 110/220 vac 11.9/5.5 amps
That works out as 110X11.9/746= 1.75 hp to get to 1 real hp the efficiency would be about .6

applying that to 110 x8.5/746x.6=.75 hp but as I say every king I have looked at has not made much sense hp wise.
They are conservative not like the air compressor numbers that at the worst had a 4 hp compressor powered from 120 volt 15 amp circuits

My generic motor tables come closest to 1/2 hp for that current (8.5) amps but the true delivered Hp depends on the actual material used and the design of the mechanical part of the motor.

The question is moot anyway the motor on the sander is what it is the real question is does the sander work as expected?
