BETTER THAN A BELT SANDER !

Review Summary

I purchased this Straight Line Sander recently because I needed an aggressive sander that I could rely on ! Mind you I have several belt sanders, but they have a few down sides that a SLS doesn't. The belt glue joints,on a belt sander, are effected by humidity, that being to much, or to little. I've had far to many belts break on me due to this reason, that's why I now prefer a straight line sander. Another problem with belt sanders is control.
It's far to easy to gouge your work with just a slight forward or backward tip of a belt sander. Not a problem with a SLS ! And random orbit sanders can have a tendency to sand to much off the edges and leave swirl marks on narrow pieces, neither of which is a problem a with a SLS. This particular IR brand SLS worked flawlessly in sanding narrow pieces and keeping them flat. It's smooth and quite in operation and is aggressive in removing material. This sander uses 2 3/4 " paper you purchase on rolls in self stick or non- self stick. The clamps on each end are very strong and hold the non-stick paper securely. I noticed also that these come in a smaller size as well if your concerned about the 15" length of this model. I suppose the down side to using a pneumatic sander is the need for a fairly large compressor tank and motor. These sanders do need to be occasionally oiled in the holes that are designated on the tools side. Love this tool, glad I got it , and wished I'd purchased it long ago.
