      Comments about Compact Belt Sander (2-1/2 in. x 14 in.):

      What I like best is the size and weight of the sander. As a woman I look for tools that are compact, but perform like a full-size model. This sander comes as close as possible. It is easy to use, uncomplicated, and reasonably-priced.

        Comments about Compact Belt Sander (2-1/2-in x 14-in):

        As an individual with atrhritus in my hands and shoulders, this sander is great. The power to weight ratio is perfect. Smaller size and compactness is perfect. This sander is just right for the jobs you need a good belt sander but don't need all the weight and pull of a larger unit.

          Comments about Compact Belt Sander (2-1/2-in x 14-in):

          I was in the market for a new belt sander to replace my vintage craftsman sander that I couldn't find parts. I considered buying Porter Cables 3 x 24" model but wanted a tool that was lighter and less tiring to use. I'm sure the larger models still have a useful purpose, but for my requirements the 2-1/2 x 14" fits the bill. Easy to handle and control on fine furniture projects and removes material quick and easy without leaving grooves and blemish for me to hand rub out. Excellent tool!!

              I use it in my woodworking shop on most furniture projects. The smaller size and lighter weight is easier to use than the bigger, bulky 3 x 21 model belt sanders
