"Have wanted one of these for ages. This is a brilliant sander and so efficient. Just one example - I had screwed 2 pieces of wood together and the screwtips JUST popped out. I didn't want to leave them in case anyone caught their fingers on them so on with the sander, it very quickly got rid of the screwtips and left a small indent in the wood, but that was my fault (bit heavy handed). I have two 3" belt sanders but there are times when these will just not fit exactly where you want to sand. This is where the Evolutioin comes in, it will sand just about anywhere and very quickly. Have only just purchased this so can't comment on reliability at present but have no reason to doubt it will last. I am very pleased with this product. Would definitely recommend."

Review 4 for Evolution Precision MINIBELT2 ½" Thin Belt Sander 240V
"I needed a means of rapidly removing stock and refining the shape of a rocking horse. The Makita power file was outside of my budget and I could only find it with a 9mm belt. I am thoroughly impressed, using a 40 grit belt the wood is removed very quickly and precisely, the narrow belt allows access to areas that would otherwise require conventional carving or extensive work with a rasp or surform. The only downside is the dust, prodigious amounts of it none of which ended up in the dust bag, so I use it without the bag and wear a dust mask. Cannot say how reliable it will be but no worries thus far, so 3 stars with confidence, otherwise its a great buy."

Review 7 for Evolution Precision MINIBELT2 ½" Thin Belt Sander 240V
"Nice tool easy belt changes, Good speed control, Usefull angle changes. The only let down is the very cheap hard SHORT power cable! Evolution need to take a lesson from Dewalt on the cable......Bought on daily deal so even better value."
