A File Belt Sander Sized and Powered for Collision Repair
Bringing the reliability and versatility of our heavy-duty file belt sanders for metalworking into the collision repair shop, our 3M™ File Belt Sanders for Body Repair features a light weight and a narrow profile that makes it ideal for automotive work. This automotive file belt sander fits smoothly into your hand and into your auto repair schedule. It operates at .65 HP (495W) and weighs just 2 lbs. — plenty of power and excellent maneuverability for a range of jobs including spot weld removal. In many cases, the belt sander can replace a traditional spot weld drill. It is also great for efficient hem flange removal, surface prep, urethane, seam sealer and weld clean-up.

Maneuverable and Comfortable for Fast, Efficient Work
The 3M™ File Belt Sanders for Body Repair is especially suitable for sanding or grinding in tight areas such as between door panels or along sharp contours. The entire housing is rotatable, enabling the operator to turn and rotate the sander and the belt for hard-to-reach areas. The sander's weight is balanced throughout the unit, and a rotatable housing offers added comfort and control.

This file belt tool is designed for use with 3M™ Cubitron™ II Abrasive Belts, created for performance grinding and long abrasive life. It features a replaceable rubber contact wheel that is designed to provide added flexibility and exert less pressure on the abrasive during use, further lengthening the life of the abrasive belt.

About Cubitron™ II Abrasives
3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasive products have raised the bar for high-performing abrasives. Engineers started with 3M™ Ceramic Abrasive Grain and used technology to electrostatically orient each triangular structure on the backing to form sharp peaks and maximize cutting potential. These peaks act like individual cutting tools that slice through metal, and continuously shelf-sharpen as the points break off, ensuring extended high performance in heavy-duty production applications. The grains wear evenly and provide extra-long life and consistency with less grinding pressure. The result is that Cubitron™ II products out-cut and outlast every conventional ceramic industrial abrasive product on the market, maximizing productivity and minimizing belt stress and operator fatigue.
