Handy tool!
Handy for sculpture work and any job requiring single hand control. Works good almost any situation that I perviously used large belt sanders.

This is a great little sander. It is easy to use with one hand and if you remove the front handle you can get into tighter places.
I use it for cabinetry, and boat and car restorations.
Love it. I am on my second one in 10 years

Awesome trim sander

I'm a professional trim carpenter. Unless you're a purest, you can put your block plane away (maybe throw it away!). Fantastic one-handed control for scribing all kinds of materials and for tweaking fit or trim details. With coarse paper, it can remove material quickly and precisely --- and with no fear of tear-out or need to sharpen constantly. I felt a little guilty when I bought this for a limited and specific purpose, but find I use if for all manner of detail work. Great tool if you want to do the best work possible, by whatever means necessary...

Fantastic sander
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!!

Great things do some in small packages
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.

Does it come with a case
Nick on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, the model PCBN371k would include the case
My #371, gets so hot, it is hard to hold and melts the seams where the sanding belts are joined. There appears that there is no fan to dissipate the heat, or reject the dust.

Frustrated just retired homeowner.
