Wide belt sanders are some of the most popular woodworking machines on the market. They’re designed to remove material from the top of wooden pieces until they reach a specified finish and thickness. These machines can be used with solid wood materials and composite boards (like plywood).

What is a wide belt sander used for?
The wide belt sander is used to machine stock flat and to specific thicknesses. It can be used with solid wood and composite boards such as plywood and MDF. A rubber conveyor carries your stock through the machine while a wide abrasive belt removes material from the top surface.

Is a belt sander worth the money?
Also, unlike orbital and vibrating sanders, the sanding action is linear, so even with coarse grits you can sand with the grain and get a good-looking result. Though a belt sander isn’t an essential tool in the homeowner’s arsenal, you won’t find many experienced DIYers or carpenters without one.
