2, PORTER-CABLE 352VS

PORTER-CABLE 352VS 8 Amp 3-Inch-by-21-Inch Variable-Speed Belt Sander with Cloth Dust Bag
Ideal for woodworking, cabinet making, remodeling, and home improvement projects, the PORTER CABLE 8 amp 352VS 3-inch by 21-inch belt sander is versatile and powerful. Used for heavy stock removal, sanding wood floors, repairing or fine tuning a woodworking project like a table top, the 352VS has been the industry standard for years. Its variable speed dial enables the operator to custom the belt speed to the work from 850-1,300 SFPM, and the quick-release belt-change lever makes belt changes quick and easy. The unit is designed for flush sanding up to vertical surfaces on the open wheel side. An extra large dust bag swivels 360-degrees so it can be moved out of the way in tight quarters.

All-Metal Housing
PORTER CABLE’S 3-by-21-inch belt sander features an all-metal housing that gives the tool a solid feel, makes it tough to damage, and lets you sand effectively without having to press down. This sander also does a great job of keeping belts centered, a terrific bonus because there’s nothing more frustrating that having to constantly re-center a belt. The all-metal housing accounts for the centered placement of the belts. The sander remains rigid, even during heavy use, and the metal helps dissipate heat, keeping the belt relatively cool and in place.

This sander also has a variable-speed dial that lets you match the speed of the belt with the application, so you can speed up for aggressive removal or dial down for more precision. The handy 360-degree adjustable top dust nozzle–a feature you won’t find on many belt sanders–lets you pivot the dust bag (or hose if you’re hooked up to a dust vac), a huge convenience when sanding in corners or along edges. This quiet sander keeps the volume low thanks to PORTER CABLE’S gear system, which meshes more accurately, and to the sander’s serpentine drive belt, which makes considerably less noise than a more common cog system. For a belt sander, this tool is surprisingly easy on the ears
