Here is a sander that has been around for at least 20 years. I purchased one about that long ago and after running an on/off switch and 2 set of motor brushes out, it finally died. Tried to take it apart and fix it but it was worn all around and motor or controller could not get it (well I cut the electrical rotors on a lathe and I think that messed the timing up). After that, I bought all sorts of sanders, Bosch, Milwaukee, and some cheap stuff too because I was tired of killing them all in no time. None lasted more than a year. Last one took no more than 2 sandings to die. So i finally bought the same old Makita 24X3 belt sander which I always thought was ugly and old fashioned looking. (which it is)
Last week end, It put it to hard use to round and level a large butcher block table. I put it through 6 hours straight with a couple cooling periods...metal gets hot if sanding continuously with hard pressure but all belt sander will do that. The Makita takes the abuse like no other sander I know. What a pleasure it was to have a real tool again. As far as I am concerned, this is the best design in terms of weight/power/belt tracking, rugedness, ease to reach sides that is available today even if it's an oldie. Sometimes tools do not get better with time...that's a perfect example...An oldie but a goodie.

Word of warning...when you open the box and see the steel/cork plate exetneding way out, you think that's some defect. As if the platten is for a 4 inch belt while rollers are for 3. It allows to track belt right at the edge. Actually it is one of the great feature of that sander, it allows for very wide tracking moves and positioning belt right where you want it...It was designed after trials and errors and plenty of debug and adjustements, just like a good tool should be.

I have own a countertop business for 25 years, and have bought a total of 8 of these sanders through the years. They are durable,light weight, and yet sand smoothly and right up against the wall if need be. I use my sanders an average of 2-3 hours and day every work day and they hardly ever break down or need much maintenece. As for the 4" base plate......NO problem, just use 4" wide belts instead of the 3" belts recommended. I have always used 4" belts with great results. This is a great bargain, its like buying a 4" x 24" belt sander, but at less weight and less money! Highly Recommend!!

When you consider most belt sanders on the market and then go out and take a close look this one surpasses many others .

Most outside of a few have the motor set 90 degrees to the belt , while this is not the most balanced desigen Makita has come up with a design that almost eliminates tipping and gouging .

Another thing to look at is the flatness of the base and how sturdy it is secured to the motor .

This sander has a flat base and it does not flex or give at all and it is set 90 degrees to the base of the motor .

A friend of mine got the porter cable and one of the first things I noted was the base appeared bend so the sander leaned to the right ( viewed from the handle end) this was before I got the makita and when I did check others in stores all where the same way .

The one I got has the dust collection and it works very well , one thing to keep in mind is that all belt snaders pickup from the rear so if you have the rear off the work area dust will drift and blow on all belt sanders .

This sander also has a rather long cord so for me most of the time I don't need an extension .

Some conplain that it seems to be a 4" base on a 3" sander and in a way it is and it can be used to run the belt to the edge for flush sanding . More important is that this wider base gives the sander stability and helps a great deal to keep the sander from tipping .

I do have a bosch 3x21 inch inline belt sander with variable speed and use it for most jobs requiring a belt sander and for light duty work .

But if I do need to remove wood fast and stay in control put a 150 grit belt on this sander and work with ease and control plus fast stock removal .

Just burned up a DeWalt DW432 3" x 21" belt sander (electrically), after three months of pretty hefty use yet do not feel I quite got the money out of the tool.

After reading the reviews at, I bought the Makita and taking the advice of one reviewer purchased 4" x 24" sanding belts to fit the 3" x 24" machine. The advice seemed sound and the belts cost less than the DeWalt, with much more working, sanding surface.

I am building a boat and have been for six years. The plan is for another four years-minimum. A belt sander makes the finished product look like the work of a first-rate carpenter. This sander is the most essential tool in my inventory, sanding mostly yellow pine and some mahogany.

Sorry DeWalt, but please do keep improving.

Thanks amazon for making shopping and decision-making easier.

EDITED August 28, 2011:

After six months of use, I have repaired this machine quite easily with parts purchase from Tool Parts, Inc (Internet source). Delivery was about ten days and since I used the machine daily decided to purchase a second belt sander. I selected the Makita 9924db again. A drive belt had broken from heavy use and a sanding plate wore through. All were very easily replace using a screwdriver. The brushes are still original (easy to inspect and access with a screwdriver) and both machines are going strong.

The reason I like this machine over the larger, more rugged Makita machine is because it is light weight. I do a lot of sanding from a ladder on vertical surfaces and weight means a great deal.
