Useful Peace of Kit
16 Nov 2014
By TheBoxDeluxe

" Used to sand corners & obstructed areas of floors and stairs where a standard belt sander couldn’t access, did an excellent job (but you need to be light handed or it will create groves).
Belt came off a couple of times but is easy to replace "

Thin Belt Sander
14 Nov 2014
By Smokeybear
, Blyth
" 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. "

Brilliant
30 May 2013
By NorthOfPerth
, North of Perth
" I'm using this for removing varnish from exterior wood, and it's perfect for using on the horizontal recessed bits on cladding.
Choose your grit carefully. Even with a 120 grit, this thing's so efficient that if you stall for a second you find it's removed half an inch of wood!
Belt comes off very occasionally but easy to put back on. "

Good bit of kit
15 Mar 2013

" Two exhaust bolts totally rusted and unable to remove. Sanded the bolts off with this no problem at all.
Easy to handle, can change main motor housing position, and easy belt changes as well.

Evolution Power file
19 Dec 2014
By LongJohn
, Chesterfield
" 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.

" 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. "
