Questions & Answers

Can the handle be removed for sanding between pickets.

Asked by: PSI
I should have mentioned in my other answer that the Makita multi-tool with it's triangular sanding pad also works for pickets depending on their spacing. It may be a better option if you want a smooth finish. Sanding across the grain with this belt sander will leave a rough surface and could tear up the edges of soft or heavily weathered wood. If none of that does not matters to you. e.g. deck rails, then this sander would probably work great for that purpose.

220 volt supported?

Is there a dust bag available for this?

Asked by: Suz
No, the open belt design doesn't really lend itself to one, and it would take away much of the versatility this sander was designed for. However, I imagine someone could fabricate one they really wanted given there is a sturdy place to attach a housing at the front handle.

the way the sander looks if this were sanding a floor would you be able to sand all the way to a wall ?

Asked by: 1234
Yes, on right side. Front would leave about 1/4 gap, left side leaves about 1/2" gap due to the mounting flange for handle that sticks out when handle is removed.

Was refinishing my 14' x 50' deck, for which I always use oil-based opaque stain. Last 3+ times longer than water-based stains, but requires that sanding down to bare wood each time I refinish it in order for the new oil-based stain to be absorbed and stick. Bought this little belt sander to get into tight spots on stairs under and around railings, which I couldn't reach with my Makita multi-tool/detail sander. The sander worked very well and the belt tracked perfectly even when moving side to side. I removed the front handle in my application, so cannot say how that works, but it is very sturdy. I was able to sand flush up to the edge on the right side, but due to the motor housing and a flange for the front handle attachment that sticks out about a 1/2", I had to get creative when I needed to use the left side. Sander if very light and easy to control without the front handle, so slipping and gouging wood wasn't an issue. Although I'm sure the front handle might come in handy for places where precision is needed, I'm not convinced it's worth giving up flush sanding on the left side of sander. I sanded for about 2 hours straight first time out with it. I can't speak for longevity beyond this use. I was a little concerned when I first turned it on. The motor didn't sound very robust, but proved to be stout enough for my application. Took off decades worth of stain without any problem. I managed to use only 1 of the 60 grit belts to do what I needed (had to sand about 3" at one end of each of the 15 steps). I was expecting to need to replace the belt at least once or twice during that work. Although the grit was worn out by the time I finished, the belt fabric itself was still very stout, so the supplied belts seem to be of good quality. Given it comes with 8 belts of different grits and I only used 1 belt, I can't say how easy or difficult it is to find replacement belts of the same quality. Loudness is about the same as my multi-tool/sander...can get away without hearing protection, but I used it anyway since I was sanding for long periods at a stretch. I don't really have any complaints. Only suggestions for improvement would be to remove flange for handle on left side so I could sand flush on that side, and maybe provide a case for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for fast removal This sander is great. It removes material very easily and vary fast. I had used this sander before purchasing and had great results, so I bought it. My only concern is that there is a little non-adjustable pin that keeps the wheel locked in its position as it rotates. Mine seems to be a little loose, so the sander makes a small humming noise that the previous sander I used did not make. I think quality control may have let one slip by!
