Nice chest, and I like your video.

You don’t see belt sanders used much anymore, and it brought a smile to my face when I saw yours. I have a 4 inch Porter Cable sander, but sadly I haven’t used it in years. Every time I see it I ask my, “Am I ever going to use that again?” Their use probably declined when random orbit sanders started gaining in popularity. Any other people use theirs?

If you don’t have one, consider getting a pin nailer. I use one for all of my template work. They hold great, but when it comes time to remove the template, it comes off easy, and the remaining holes are just about invisible

Have your say...
