Comments about Makita 9031 1-1/8-in x 21-in Belt Sander:
I was introduced to this wonderful, little, wood- eating beast, while doing "log work" at a hotel remodel in Big Bear Lake, CA. At first glance, I thought this skinny sander to be a "toy" compared to my Makita 3x24" belt sander, I'd used for years... Well, I quickly learned the versatility of this tool; from "skinning" the bark off logs, to fitting the end of one log to the "round" of another... the uses for this quiet, light sander just seemed to multiply! As a sad (but true) further endorsement... these "1 inch Makitas" disappeared from the job-site at an alarming rate!

Q:Can the handle that is at the front of the belt sander be removed to access tight spaces?
A:The handle in front can be moved up and down for a more comfortable position. It appears the handle could be removed because pictures show it being held on with a nut. However, if you removed the handle, you would have no control of the sander.
