Ideal for woodworking, cabinet making, remodeling, and home improvement projects, this belt sander is versatile and powerful. Used for heavy stock removal, sanding wood floors, and repairing or fine-tuning a woodworking project like a tabletop, it has been the industry standard for years. Its variable-speed dial enables the operator to customize the belt speed to the work from, and the quick-release belt-change lever makes belt changes quick and easy. The unit is designed for flush sanding up to vertical surfaces on the open wheel side. An extra large dust bag swivels 360-degrees so it can be moved out of the way in tight quarters.
