Answer: 
I don't believe clamping in a vise without some very soft padding would be a good idea. It may crack the housing or squeeze something internal that would damage the unit.

Answer: 
Yes. But it is very heavy and long; you would want multiple serious clamps to hold it still, level and in place.. Otherwise, you will get irregular surface results.

Answer: 
Hi Charlie, this sander is only intended to be used by holding it with both hands. This sander is not designed to be used in a vise or as a stationary tool. Check out a Ryobi belt/disc sander, model number BD4601 Home Depot number 100067979, Store SKU 281-657. This is an affordable tool that is a great little stationary sander.

Thank you for your question. No, the Makita 9404, 8.8-Amp 4 in. x 24 in. Corded Belt Sander, does not have a Lock On Switch. Operation is controlled solely by the tool's trigger switch located in the tool handle.

8.8 Amp 4 in. x 24 in. Corded Belt Sander is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK for the money Good product, I could use a little more power and sanding speed although it was able to handle everything for my sanding needs. Auto tracking works well, didn't need adjustable speed for which I had it on maximum. It gets a little warm and doesn't move the material as fast relative my old all metal construction 4x24 commercial duty belt sander. The old stuff was built like a battle ship. Problem was it had a high spot rather than sanding evenly across the flat bottom of the shoe plate. I think it was the problem with the cork pad. Well see if Makita has a fix or replace the cork pad. Being right handed I had no problem with the dust bag located on the left side as noted by others. Having the ability to sand right the edge of a wall was a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sander After research, bought the Makita to resurface a 40 year old 7' x 18' deck with 2 x 6 boards that had raised edges. The Makita got great reviews and it performed up to expectations. I was able to use 2 50 grit, 3 80 grit, and 2 120 grit to smooth the boards for refinishing. No pressing on the sander is required - it tracks perfectly and has a fine centering adjustment. Deck turned out great - great sander!

It is easy to use and has just the right amount of power. I really like the variable speed control. The automatic tracking feature is really nice. I've used the sander several times in the past couple of months. I'm surprised how effective it is yet no problem with control. The 4 inch wide belt keeps it stable. I mostly use the sander for cutting boards. After I glue up the pieces I scrape off the glue, then sand it with the belt sander. When it is fairly smooth on both sides I run the glued up board through the drum sander to be sure it is absolutely level on both sides. Seems like an extra step? The clue can gum up the sanding belt. I'd rather gum up an inexpensive 4 inch belt that can be changed in 60 seconds rather than gum up the belt on my 19 inch wide drum sander. After the board is flattened with the belt sander, the glue doesn't seem to bother the drum sander. The belt sander is an excellent tool. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good belt sander for the money. I have had Makita power tools in the past and was always satified with them.(ie. table saw. chop saw. circular saw) Still have them after 26 years and they have seen the're share of many home improvement projets plus some contracting over those years. I decided on the makita belt sander because of the variable speed,decibel level and the're proven reliability. I have had two other non makita sanders and they both died. I,m refinishing some older yellow pine floors in two smaller bedrooms and I did not wish to rent a floor sander. Just finished one of them and the variable speed was a must. Looks great!!! and I will save a good dollar doing so. I,m sure I will not be disappointed with my new sander. And the bag works great also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super ! I refinished a large dining room table that sits 8 which was in a fire that burnt the middle of the table but needed a belt sander started off with 40 grit then finished of with a 120 grit. Machine had plenty of power. Easy to load and adjusts I had very little dust as the key is to check and empty the bag as it can fill rather quickly depending on grit used and time The machine is weii built and I kepted cord on my shoulder so it would not get caught up in machine.Worth the money

Don't buy it for small surfaces, little jobs or detail work. Everything I own by Makita is top notch. We work our tools hard and pretty much only use DeWalt, Makita, Porter Cable or Milwaukee. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like I hoped it would. The belt sander is really fast and efficient. Wood removal was a breeze and the dust collector really works to keep me breathing clean air.
