    Default My 10inch and 12inch Northstar box's need help


    I bought all my tools new about 3 years ago and have not needed to mend or service them until now. My 10" and 12" box's are now letting out to much gear and leaving big edges either side which as you can guess is a nightmare to sand. I really havent got a clue about fixing and bringing these tools back to the fit working order.

    Any help will be much appriciated.

    Pop them in a box and send them to Marcus at belmore, he'll make them good as new.

    Sounds like the blades and skids need replacing. Like Tony says Belmore service all the tools. A mate of mine is getting a busted taping gun fixed at the moment and plans to send a sander next week.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    I agree it sounds like you need new blades and skids on your boxes. Sending them in to Belmore is the best bet but if you cant wait why not get them to send you out the parts? They would arrive in a couple of days and they're not rocket science to fit although theres plenty videos on you tube which show you how to change blades etc

    Cough, cough. Comission?

    A new Flex sander for half price, that'll do nicely.
