Good little belt sander . Was hesitant to buy because of small size , but performs beautifully. It is only for small light work , which it does very well . Like the different speed settings. Hard to find really fine grit belts . I’m sure they are out there somewhere .
This is smaller than expected, although didn’t really know what to expect. This is a great little machine, recommend to by some belts from a good manufacturer and cut the width down yourself.
I make jewelry and have used much larger belt sanders to refine my work. What I like about this machine is that it’s small enough to fit on my bench and fairly quiet. Much quieter than my other larger machines. I like the fact that is has a bed so that I can sand my work at right angles. Another nice feature is that changing the belts is very easy. By pushing down on one of the belt tensioners ( its spring loaded) I can easily loosen a belt and replace it. Don’t expect to do large work on this machine but for smaller jobs....it’s perfect! I’m very happy with it!
Compact and powerful, I use it every day. I have it hooked up to a PWM speed control and it works brilliantly.
I have inky sharpened 7 knives so far. The motor seems great. The pulleys and bearings are precise, no wobble no shake. Easy to change belts. I removed the small table in order to have more belt exposed so I can sharpen larger (wider) knives, this is a small machine. A steady hand and watchful eye and this tight little machine (with prooer grit belts) will serve very well for putting a keen edge on knives that yoy can make fit. Much, much faster than honing on stones by hand with results as good. Well worth the money so far, even more so if it holds up which I have no indication to the contrary.
