SMALL BUT SERIOUS BELT SANDER

OK - I know it's not the biggest sander in the line.  I've got small screwdrivers and big ones.  I like to match the tool size to the job at hand.

This belt sander is ideal for working down the rough edges on my cabinet boxes.  I use it all the time and because of of the unique flip front design I can reach into areas my bigger sanders can't.  I also like the adjustable handle.  This handle can be set to any one of three different angles so you can find the optimum holding position.

One click of the belt release lever make changing sanding belts a snap and the self tracking adjustment lets you easily fine tune the belts path through the sander.  All in all, I think this is the best 3 inch belt sander I've ever used.  I would have given it a five except the dust collection port is hard to get into to clean out if the sander ever gets clogged up.

Pick yours up today.  You'll thank me tomorrow!

Sands great - dust collector fails

Got this to  do some patio work, palm sander just didn't cut it!  This sander is way more powerful and the shape makes it easy to use in tight spots. BUT!!!!  It was not collecting ANY dust at all, none - either through the bag or connected shopvac.  I took it to the store to ask them about it, they replaced the unit. It seemed to collect most of the dust for a few minutes through the shopvac, then in a few minutes later starting blowing A LOT of saw dust again. I tried the bag, NONE was going in it.   I am using it with course paper on old wood - perhaps it just got overloaded and failed in some way.  I could not see any blockage - there is no way to access the duct. So, 2 failed in minutes - unfortunately I will have to return this one unless someone has a suggestion.

Easy to use - Good results

I purchased this to resurface my cedar deck (about 12' x 12', plus rails and stairs) and found it to be a well built, quality tool. Power was good even plowing through rough wood with 36 grit paper, ergonomics good for extended use, variable speed was great. Easy enough to replace the belts as needed. No issues with wear or over heating, even after an hour+ of continuous use. Low profile front is very useful as well. Didn?t use the dust collector since I only use it outside and I wouldn?t imagine it to be any more than marginally effective. Use a good dust mask instead. I probably have about 8 hours of combined use on the tool and ,considering the price point, I?d recommend it highly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Comfortable

Comfortable design and grip. Little odd in design with the small roller in the front but an advantage in tight areas. Time will tell if the belt will last shorter or longer then normal due to the small roller. Belt size is one that is common which is another plus. Over all a good product. Would recommend it to the weekend woodworking or small remodeling project.

Blows dust everywhere.

Other than that I can manage the problems other users have described. Does anyone at Sears ever respond to to these messages? I'd really like to fix the dust problem. I have disassembled the unit and unclogged the ports, but it doesn't seem to stay unclogged very long.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Sander

I have had one of these for about six years now and it just keeps going. I have used it on a number of decks and I haven't had any issues. The front of it lifts up to get under the rails of the deck making it real handy. I bought two more because I am getting ready to start a 6000 sqft. deck.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
