I like to use this little hand held belt sander for any situation like sanding a little flash off. You can hold this sander on edge pretty easily in one hand. I use it quite a bit and it is more compact and cheaper than a larger tool on a floor stand.

Yikes, just saw these were discontinued so I ordered a back-up for $114

Nice find, thanks. Anybody knows similar machines which you can get outside US? I found just one from triton, dont know about this brand and quality. looks little bit cheapish but for under $/€ 100 not much to loose

Discontinued? Too bad, these are great little tools. Been using mine for years to do precision sanding, like feathering core thickness to match tip filler perfectly.

yep SHIF discontinued, but still widely available.

mammuth, I have large Triton planer, it is a beast, runs smooth and has had no issues so far.

Cool Dave. The small triton is quite cheap, here in EU around €70. Got one for 37€ (Amazon - cosmetic damage) ... nothing to loose :)

Got the little Triton. Nice small machine, especially for the price. Dave i will think about you doing my nxt boards, my arm will be happy with 2kg lighter machine :)

Only thing on these small machines, you feel the glued part (hump) of the sanding belt more then with a heavy machine.

I wonder if its better to use belts for wood or for metal. Need to try.

Huh, I haven't noticed that at all with the belts I have been using. There are probably better belts out there with smoother joints than what you have right now.
