Would it stand brick and mortar sanding? I need to sand a brick chimney.

Asked by Mrpep October 13, 2018

Answers

No one sands a brick chimney. Sand blasting would work.

Will this sander be able to sand down high spots of wood subfloor for flooring installs?

Asked by Hec91 November 22, 2019
7
Answers

My guess is yes. We didn't do that but we did sand down our oak floors and they are finished beautifully. There were high spots and rough patches that we smoothed down.

Does this sander come with a carrying/storage case?

Asked by Denny May 29, 2019

Answers

unfortunately no, just a box. I will say that this sander is a beast and will mow through some wood very quick. So you need to be careful otherwise you end up taking too much off and getting into trouble. Good luck

Can this be used on a 70’s style wooden accent wall & smoothing an old ceiling that has currently popcorn ceiling.

Asked by RookieCarpenter May 23, 2020

Answers

It should work fine on the accent wall but you would then need to move to an orbital or finish sander. It would be to aggressive for the plaster on a popcorn ceiling. It is also pretty heavy to work overhead for long periods of time.

Could I sand a new wood floor with this before staining it. It will be a <100sqf room.

Hello! I'm not sure. To be honest. All actions can be compared at work. The main thing is not to spoil the tool.

Is it easy to change belts and do any come with belt sander?

Asked by Stephen December 9, 2020

Answers

yes it is, flip the lever the wheel retracts then pull the old belt out when you put the new belt on it will slide in place pretty easy, just don't jam it in there. Yes it comes with a belt on the sander, or at least mine did

Are the 4 x 24 sanding belts being phased out it seems I find more sanders 3 x 18 or 3x21

The 3" belts are more common, but 4" belts are still available. It may be necessary to order them online.

Would this sander be good for removing paint from a deck?

Asked by NikeGolf May 8, 2017
4
Answers

There are better more efficient ways to remove paint than with a sander. I recommend you talking to a local professional paint store for recommendations. Of course, the condition of the paint and the material under the paint will be important factors to consider. Most deck are made from softer wood and after they age, rain and sun tend to make them even softer. A Sander can do serious damage to the wood and quickly. Also, belts tend to clog up with paint. Unlike wood, it doesn't powder and blow away. The heat from the belt friction tends to melt it. You can go through a lot of belts before completing the project, depending on how big an area you are doing, Good Luck

Shipping A DISCRACE !
Sander came in oversize box. Not MAKITA cardboard. They threw the sander, manual in the carton. The damaged box was left by Fed Ex. Inside, the plastic elbow for the dust bag was broken and the dust bag loose. There was no packing inside the carton. Totally useless and a loss of 10 days. Will not use Home depot to ship home again. Total breakdown in quality and care.

Used almost daily to sand steel doors. My previous 3 x 24 in” finally gave up after several years. We will see how long this one lasts. I hope several years as well.

I waited on this review for close to a year in order to put the belt sander to a consistent test. Having used it a lot (and many times really hard) I can honestly say that I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Do not be swayed by several reviews where folks are whining about the slip-on closer for the dust bag being "cheap" and "expecting more". It is not only simple in design but very effective and you don't have to worry about fine dust gumming up a zipper. Zero negative things or critiques. If you use a belt sander a lot on good sized projects like I do you won't be disappointed. Thanks Makita.

I'd like to start by saying I've never written a product review before. However, I just wanted to let others know what my experience has been so far. Upon opening the box, I switched out the sandpaper for the grit that I wanted to start with. what a simple procedure that was, No worries about setting anything up, or dealing with tracking of the sandpaper or anything like it.. Was simple plug in and go to work. This sander is so Powerful and quiet, its an absolute joy to use, especially since sanding isn't such a joy to begin with. I'm a contractor and hobby woodworker, so this sander will see a lot of use. I didn't bother looking at any other sander, as this one fit the bill.. Yes, It's a little expensive. but you need to realize that this will most likely be a one time purchase, as it will probably out last YOU yourself. Cry once buy the best, never-mind the rest. The 9403 comes with a very long cord think 8' or 10' long which is perfect. be smart when using it, throw the cord over your shoulder in order to keep it out of your way. I purchased this to help me with the build of my new workbench top. This sander will come in very handy if you don't have the large expensive Planer's & Jointers. It'll allow you to purchase rough sawn lumber and be able to help you mill it down some. this sander just screams Quality!!! I'm very happy i purchased it. The only flaw I can find, is that it doesnt come with a coupler / fitting in order to hook up to the dust collection hoses. I'm using a Furnco 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" I recently found out that Makita does sell a Vacuum hose for this. Part # 192108-A I have enough hoses and it was a little disappointing that NONE of them worked plug & play. Be sure to pick up some Rubber Belt dressing sticks "Pro Stick" it'll clean your sandpaer and allow you more life to it, depending on what your sanding.

This Makita belt sander is a workhorse. If You need to do a lot of work in awkward positions ,choose a smaller sander. This sander is pretty heavy , Besides that, I highly recommend this tool.
