Ideal for use in limited space, this sturdily built 115V belt sander works on flat surfaces, corners, and radii. The sanding head tilts through 60 degrees, which eases access in many difficult spots. Head is cast aluminum for durability. Full wave electronics provide variable speed control. Belt speeds range from 300 fpm to 700 fpm. Platen is 3/8″ wide and 4-5/8″ long; overall sanding arm is 6-1/2″ long. Vacuum dust attachment fits wands or hoses up to about 1-3/8″. The motor draws approximately 100 watts. Belt replacement requires a push against the platen and bar, which loosens the present belt. Slip it off, slip the new one on the depressed bar and release. Track if needed and youre ready to go again.

nylon drive gear wears out too soon. Nice construction, but the Achilles heel is the nylon ring gear. Mine is cracked in two places after moderate use and now chatters like hell. Disassembly process is not obvious, but not too difficult once it is discovered.Still working on getting a replacement part.

Great Sander for Hard to Reach Places – Flexible Too I used this sander for my model ship building hobby. It works great! I love it. The flexible position of the sanding belt and the variable speed make it a wonderful sanding tool. I think it’s a bit expensive, but, to me, it was worth it.
