I've had one of these little sanders for about 15 years.

It's a very specialized tool, and in my case, there haven't been many uses for it - however, when only a small belt sander will do the trick, this tool has worked well, without any problems.

It's light, safe to use, has plenty of power, changing belts is simple and fast, the handle for your left hand greatly aids in tool control, and overall, is well designed. The only feature mine lacks is variable speed, which the newer sanders have.

Even though the belt is narrow, it can throw off lots of dust, so consider using it outside (if possible), or use a respirator. It isn't a good choice for sanding flat wood much wider than an inch, since it's difficult to not leave groove marks at the belt edges.

I've been using this sander for many many years now. In fact I have 3 of them in my shop. Of course I bought them from Amazon.

Only thing you have to do to maintain this great tool is to change bearing. You can get them from Makita or many other on-line part shop.

I do a lot of scribe work in trim, log, etc., and this tool makes the difference between a good scribe, and a fantastic scribe. Also excellent for carving radius etc. A bit spendy, but a must for the professional trim carpenter.

If you need a small belt grinder, this is it. I'm a Farrier and I bought it specifically to use on foundered horses feet - this tool really takes off the hoof-wall. I make money every time I get it out of the truck. It runs great and keeps on running.

I am a cabinetmaker/finish carpenter and this handy 1" sander has appeared more than a few job sites, but the price of this little sander has kept me away from purchasing it for years. Finally I bought one specifically for sanding window stools to match bull nose corners and it worked great. To my surprise, I found it was the best tool in my arsenal for doing so much more. From scribing to fine detail sanding. I am amazed at how often I use it. Wish I had bought it a long time ago

It is kind of expensive but I am happy with this sander. It is light. So it is efficient for sanding areas that are narrow and vertical such as door frames. I use this sander to sand the wood after the thick paint are removed.

It is possible to fatigue the supports for the metal backing plate. Otherwise, I'd give it 5 stars. But is it still one tough tool, considering that it constantly inside a sandstorm of particles that are flying off the belt. And since Bosch has discontinued their bandfile, there's not much else out there. Milwaukee's bandfile supports the narrow belts. Black and Decker discontinued their PF260 as well, but then they never seem to make a particular tool for more than a couple years anyway.
The 9031 is not cheap , but the equivalent Metabo bandfile goes for about $700.

I've used this most recently to sand the edges of some sheet metal flat -- worked really well and its compact size gets into some small spaces. I would have given it 5 stars but when using it on large flat objects it likes to leave wheel marks -- nothing you can do about it either -- all belt sanders do but this one being so thin really does it. its fine for small areas but if you have something large to sand you don't want to use this unit.
