I love it when you can get even more usage from a tool with some slight modifications ... in fact, this tool mod gave me TONS more use from my hand held belt sander that I would have ever got from it as a hand-held unit. This little conversion is known and it's a great way of getting so much more from a belt sander.

To start off with, you will need a hand held belt sander with accessory bolt holes in the top. Not all belt sanders have these, in fact, most of the new sander does not have these accessory holes, but check because they may have some other options that would do the same job, or could attach them with a different system that might not be as easy, but equally effective in the end. Others may have some other form of attachment but the bolt attachment works well and is easy to work with.
