Hi, I picked up a 15" Bridgewood bws-15a wide belt sander from an estate sale last week. It has been sitting for 15 year and all of the air hose has rotted away. It did not have the manual or schematics. The closest I have been able to find online is a manual for a Powermatic rb-25 on www.ereplacementparts.com. As far as I understand the machines are all similar. But I am hoping to find a closer match. I seems obvious where the hoses start and end but there are some y splitters in the middle that make it confusing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I got one of those. Mine happens to be a "North State" brand fromLeneave in Charlotte (out of business now). It is actually quite a good machine. But they are all identical: Powermatic, Bridgewood, North State, etc. I have the manual and it has some schematics. If interested, pm me and I will .pdf the manual andn email it to you.

I have a bridgewood BWS15a also... I could take pictures, mine too was blowing hoses..... Its very annoying, especially when the tracking hose comes off and the machine eats a brand new $30 belt
