This tool will be a great addition for woodworking as well as other projects as it can also be used to grind metals. There are even advantages over stone-based grinders such as the larger surface and no chance of exploding stones. Belts may rip and go flying though, especially if they are installed in the wrong direction.

With the AEG HBSE100 it is strongly advised to wear hearing protection as it is quite loud!

Belts

This sander requires 560 × 100 mm belts. We might only have smaller belts at the moment, so be prepared bring your own!

If the belt often slips under pressure, it may have become stiff - this may be fixed by "massaging" it a bit in tight bends or replacing it with a new one.

TODO: explain/illustrate belt direction

Stand

although the belt sander can be clamped very carefully in a woodworking vise, we should really make a proper stand for such stationary uses!

The Spanish Maker Román Palma shared instructions for a nifty three-position stand in Make: magazine, see the article and video here!

With such a stand we could use the belt sander as a simple substitute for a planer (DE: Hobelmaschine) or bench grinder.
