Porter Cable Variable Speed Belt Sander, 3″ x 24″

Here you have Porter Cable’s venture into the 3″ X 24″ sander market. It doesn’t have the flat configuration of a clothing iron like so many belt sanders. Instead the motor is located directly OVER the platen. The manufacturer tells us this is for maximum performance and perfect balance. I haven’t tried it but it could work I suppose.

The variable-speed dial is conveniently placed on the handle, allowing belt speed adjustment form 1,000 to 1,500 SFPM. A belt and gear drive system transfers power from the motor to the s100G Zirconium sanding belt (in case you were wondering. Yep, it’s a regular sander, just vertical.)

The large capacity dust collection bag swivels 360 degrees and the Porter Cable Variable Speed Belt Sander is fitted with ergonomic correct handles, with a fingertip tracking knob for quick, accurate belt adjustments.

Other specifications are: 12.0 amp motor, 120 VAC, 25-60 Hz/120 VDC. UL listed.

Buy are Porter Cable Variable Speed Belt Sander here for $289.99. Belt, bag and book included. At that price they’d better be.
