I have been making planed timber for shelves and cabinets by ripping lengths of 100mmx45mm (what I used to call 2 by 4s) into 45mmx14mm strips and then gluing them together on their thin edges to form 14mm x up to 450mm boards. The table saw doesn't leave a smooth edge and while you can get one side reasonably flat the other side always has some peaks and troughs that need smoothing off. The severe parts here and there can be planed out but then I have been using the belt sander with 40, then 80 then 120 grit to get the wood really flat. I end up with a pretty good product and from a 2.4m piece of wood that cost me £5 and can turn out a 2.4 m piece of 14mm x 22.5mm planed wood that would have cost me four times that at the store. The cost, of course, is my time, and it is the sanding that takes the most of it. I still have a few things left to make and had just started sanding when the old belt sander made strange crunching noises and seized up.
I chose Bosch because I have a number of their tools and have found them to perform well. I read the reviews on Amazon and some other sites and chose this model. I have been extremely pleased with this sander. It must run at a higher speed than the old Black and Decker because it takes longer to run down after you let go the trigger (I noticed I had to hold it longer before putting it down). Maybe this is why it does the job so much faster than the old one – maybe two-thirds the time.
The bed is flat, which is good. My old sander had a 45 degree section at the heel where the belt returned and it used to do the occasional "wheelie". This one is quite stable. The back handle is designed so it would be easy to hang on a hook or a dowel and it is large enough that it is quite comfortable.
There is a version, sold in Germany, that, for an extra price, includes a base that screws onto the top so it can be turned over and clamped to a bench with the belt facing up or vertically for fixed work. You can get the base as an accessory but I read reviews that said it wasn't worth the money. I have found that the sander sits comfortably on its side (the side with the belt release) with the belt safely clearing the bench, but required a thin shim under the curve of the top edge to get it to exactly 90 degrees to the bench. It was easy to use an F clamp (with a thin piece of wood to protect the sander) to hold it firmly on the bench while I used it to finish the cut ends of the boards. It was easy to make it extremely secure and I had no concerns whatsoever about it wobbling and coming loose (with the old sander it was much more complicated to achieve this and it was never as secure).
One reviewer said they shouldn't have made the front handle so big but it is attached with a Phillips screw.
It only comes with one belt and that belt is for you to use to test the tracking system. Mine was fine right out of the box. But I suppose if for some reason yours wasn't set properly, it is that free belt that gets eaten as you manually adjust the settings (instructions included) rather than one you have supplied. The Silverline belts sold on Amazon fit it fine and are a great deal – order some when you order the sander.
It feels a bit like a mosnter, and I hope it lasts as long as the legends of monsters, I have a lot to do over the next few months with it so I will update if my opinion changes.
The instructions are kinda crap in some ways and there was no information on which direction the screw is meant to turn for adjustments, so I tore up about 5mm of the first belt on on side before figuring that out.
So far all I have done is sand the living crap out of an 8"x3" beam that I will be using to suspend gym rings and boxing bag from. It took about an hour or maybe a touch more each side but the wood was very very rough to begin with. I probably took 3mm all four edges from it in that time.
It tears up corners much more quickly than you might expect so be careful there.
I have sharpened up one superbly blunt chisel and one quite blunt cheap but thick 6" kitchen knife also, that was with the installed 80grit belt. Both in less than ten minutes.
If you are looking for a way to sharpen steel, this will do the job but I can't recommend it unless you have some experience otherwise you might destroy your blades. No, make that a lot of experience. I do. I picked this model becuase it can be flat mounted and from that position I will be doing lots of steel work with it in the future to save my expensive diamond stones from the initial edge working to remove chips and such.
The one major fault with this model is the suction bag system. It actually sucks.
It might be fine if you are only using it to touch up clean wood taking it up the grits but for serious leveling work, it fills up in no time at all because it is far too small. I would recommend a well ventilated room to work in regardless, I got dust absolutely everywhere from the get go.
I would consider this from my initial impressions to be an adequate model to be a part of a small woodworking company launch as long as you have a dust bag with hose attached.
Belts that are compatible are available from both Amazon and also screwfix so are easy to get a hold of and you will go through them if doing floors like me! You will also want to wear hearing protection as the sander is quite loud especially when reverberating through the floor.
I would definitely recommend this sander as it is powerful enough to sand through plenty of material and has been reliable running for a good few hours at a time (the bottom metal plate does get hot so mind yourself when changing pads while using!).
My only reservation with the product is the filter and dust catcher the sander comes with which is probably fine for short quick jobs but any longer and the filter clogs up and you may as well not have the attachment there. I still wore a face mask when sanding as trust me you really don't want 100 year old dust and finish going into your lungs!
