Default belt sanders sanding frames

Hi
Has anyone used the sanding frame for the Bosch 3 inch belt sander? If so, how did it go? If you have used the Festool 3 inch belt sander with sanding frame also, how does it compare with the bosch sanding frame?
Thanking you
Peteroo

are you referring to the frame that holds the sander upside down for use...
if so that system was discontinued a very long time ago here in the USA...
I used one for awhile till it was stolen.. it had it's merits but it can't hold a candle to a stationary tool..

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hi Peter

Sadly I have used neither. 3in belt sanders I find a bit slow..... But I have a Makita 9404 4in belt sander and I used to have an Elu MHB157 3in belt sander inthe past, so I at least know what you are referring to. It's something like this. The Makita one is really basic compared to the old Elu one, but it does the job. I have to say that most of the time I use a belt sander flat out without the sanding frame/shoe in place, but I have to admit that you have to be very careful not to sand through on thin veneers - the sander has to be kept moving from side to side all the time and never allowed to dwell. The one time I'll use the frame, though, is when I'm sanding out a veneered door or panel,. Sort of insurance, I suppose

Regards

Phil
