    Right tool for me
    I needed a compact belt sander for some restoration work. Shopped several different types at several retailers. This sander was ideal for the projects that I do. Pluses: compact size, compatible with Rockler Dust Right system, carrying case, solid construction, easy belt changes. Minuses: not variable speed (but at the price point, an acceptable trade off). Overall, very happy with the purchase.

    The porter cable mini sander has been one of my favorite purchases
    This is a replacement for the old one, I love the control to move a lot of material in tight spaces.

    Good smaller sized sander
    This is a very nice , one handed sized belt sander. Two hands fit , but I really liked using this in a situation where one handed was way easier on me: leveling some cupped decking in a small zone where crouching would add too much pressure on either the tool or on my back , if I were trying to keep from leaning on the tool . The dust port worked beautifully with my small sized vac , as this was an enclosed space and no dust cloud appeared in the air. The tool is plenty aggressive , and from other reviews it sounds like it can get hot if not hooked up to a vac. I think I'll always use with the vac and get more run time without too much heat build up. Overall , this tool seams capable of any belt sander application , except maybe the clamped upside down stationary method which I don't need.

    Hoping it will be easy to use with one hand, and has the balls to remove small high spots on hardwood.

    My very old belt sander gave out on me. I could not find a replacement for the larger 3" x 24" sander I had and my shop is small while my needs are few so I decided to give this little baby a try. It works well.
    Morgan S on Aug 19, 2016
    ONLY TURKEY OF ANYTHING I HAVE EVER BOUGHT FROM ROCKLER...IT HEATED UP WAY TOO MUCH AND THE SANDING AREA IS A LOT SMALLER THAN IT WAS LISTED AS.

    Can the Sander be put in a vise upside down for stationery sanding of repetitive work?
    Louis M on Sep 4, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: yes, it can. I tried it after you asked the question, but be careful about how tight you make it. Tighten it just enought to hold it and no more.
    Belt slips can you tighten the tensioner ?
    Mark P on Mar 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm of little or no help. I have had no issues with belt slippage, have you checked the owners manual, or are you like me, that is the first thing you miss place, they make no mention of how to tighten the tensioner. But I would check the rollers to make sure they are clean and inspect the belt maybe it is worn or have a build up of fine dust on the inside that prevents it from getting adhesion.
