Belt sanders are multiuse tools. They are commonly used for trimming to a scribed line, sanding very rough surfaces, leveling surfaces like a replacement board in a hardwood floor and freehand rounding and shaping. Because they have a lot of power and can handle coarse grits, they excel at the rapid removal of wood.
Belt sanders are the big, powerful gorillas of the sanding world. Few tools can save you as much time—or wreck your project faster.
A common use for a small belt sander is scribing. You can gradually sneak up on a curved line for a perfect fit. On a laminate countertop, make sure the direction of belt travel pushes the laminate down.
Belt sanders excel at the rapid removal of wood, making them the best handheld power tool for leveling and smoothing rough boards. Start at an angle to the grain for aggressive leveling, then finish with the grain. 80-grit is good for starting, then switch to 120-grit.
