Key Features

The Silverstorm 13mm electric belt sander from Silverline is ideal for descaling, sanding and polishing of welds, shaping mortises and joints and sanding tasks in difficult corners and hard-to-reach places. Designed for use on wood, metal and plastics, its 130mm long file arm has a maximum belt speed of 550m/min and is adjustable to the required working angle.

Featuring variable speed control via an easily accessible dial, you are able to select and change the speed of belt revolution in order to achieve a specific rate of removal and finish, depending on the task at hand and material you are working on. At the base of the file arm sits a tensioning / release screw which tightens or loosens the belt to improve performance, as well as making removal and replacement easy.

Dust extraction is possible during operation by connecting your method of suction to the adapter on the side of the tool, at the base of the file. Reviewers have commented on the good balance of this tool thanks to the in-line motor, rather than a more unstable side-positioned motor.

Compatible with 13 x 457mm belts of varying grit, including Silverline's (code 910232) for an assorted 5pce set. Supplied with this tool are two sanding belts - 1 x 80 grit and 1 x 120 grit - so you can get started straight away.

550 m/min maximum speed provides ideal stock removal.

Dust extraction port allows effective removal of dust and debris.

Belt tensioning screw allows easy adjustment and replacement.

This is a neat precision tool for those hard to get a places with other tools or time consuming hand work. I like the dust extractor facility as well and the straight line handle/sander belt for ease of working.

22 September 2017

Having three different types of sander I still struggled to get into those tight spaces and had to manage with sandpaper wrapped around a wooden spoon! I was a little sceptical but took the plunge and bought this Silverline power file, after all if it didn''t do the job it wouldn''t break the bank. Let me say this..... I now couldn''t be without this brilliant tool!! It simply does everything I needed it for and more! Easy belt change, powerful, precise and easy in the hand. I''m more than happy I went for this power file rather than a much more expensive option! The Silverline brand provide quality at the right price yet again!

I already own several Silverline products and have found them to be excellent and have just received my Silverstorm Power Belt file and it is brilliant! It is very robust, powerful and most of all just the job for getting into corners and all sorts of places that are hard to reach. In operation it is easy to use due to the adjustability of the head and the variable speed control. Its just great and I have been surprised at the amount of uses that I have put it to. Guaranteed for three years, great price and belts easily and cheap to obtain. Superb.

I''ve had this little belt sander only for a couple of weeks but so far I''m really impressed. Easy to change belts, plenty powerful enough and big bonus is it''s compact form - very easy to hold and control in one hand leaving other free for stability / added control. This makes it a great item and was the reason I chose it ahead of BnD rival product. Plus it is much better value to do the same job. Dust extraction isn''t great but no big deal for The work I tend to do.

I bought this belt file primarily to use as a sharpening tool. It performed better than expected, and now we have very sharp knives in our kitchen. Then onto my gardening tools which are now back in tip top condition. It performs well on small sanding jobs and is quite versatile. Overall, I''m pleased with the purchase. It''s not a beast, but a very good addition to the tool box.

What a great belt sander this turned out to be ... gets in all the difficult places. Its slow speed enables sanding on delicate surfaces. I`m removing paint from aluminium surfaces and it works very well ...well done Silverline!

I recently bought this item after looking for more expensive ones (150-400 euro). I do not need to use daily, so I decided to save money and try this Silverstorm. I was a nice surprise: well packed, comes with instruction manual and two belts (spare belts 457x13 mm are widely available and quite cheap because shared with other belt grinders'' brands). The power tool is well built, nice soft handgrip, part of the belt gear is made of aluminium, part is sturdy plastic. I thing for a non-professional like me, will last very long. I measure the belt speed with a laser speed meter, and it is 550 mt/min as declared from manufacturer. The power cord is sturdy and safe, and comes with double connector UK or SHUKO (you need just to remove the UK/EU adapter unscrewing just one screw: easy).

Very good value for money

By: Steve

Don''t know how i got by without one of these great tools before. Works very well for cleaning up welds on car bodywork - so much more precise than using an angle grinder. Easily gets into the small places that a grinder cannot reach. Easy to use, very easy to change the belts, and i like the way you can adjust the angle of the belt - making it easy to find a comfy position to get at the job in hand.

Purchased this a week ago, out the box it looked well built, it felt well balanced and on turning it on, found it was quiet to use. I cut some rough half lap joints and finished with this tool, using the supplied 120 grit belt. With no pressure, just allowing the belt to do its job, the joints were smooth in no time. I have used this to shape timber to a profile, I have used it to dress poor cutting on timber. In all, what a tool, very happy, registered for warranty online was a simple process, and at the price I believe this cannot be beaten! Thanks Silverline!

I got this as a Christmas present and used it for the first time over the weekend on my 67 Beetle. What a great little tool this is. Used it to straighten the section I had found out and it was quick and neat. It also removed the paint from the section to be welded. I will definitely be using it more often.

I have used this now for a couple of weeks and it does all that I want to remove old paint and varnish from my skirtings and doors. The angle adjustment is very handy to get into awkward corners. The belts are easy to change and are proving very good at removing material. I would definitely recommend this to the serious or even occasional DIYer.


19 November 2016

I purchased this tool and found it to be a very versatile power file that it is able to file at different angles.l, and with speed control for fine work and good selection of different grades belts for the file. At a very good price far cheaper than many others and excellent quality well made

26 September 2016

I am an engineer and i saw a power file many years ago an thought at the price of it ya could buy a van load of hand files for the same money so when I saw silverlines at a low price a thought I would give it a try I a using it to file out holes in steel an I can honestly say I''ll never go back to a hand file unless I can''t fit this machine in somewhere but it''s fast to use easy to change the belts an they are also at a sense able price so if your a engineer or just use hand files to do your work stop an think hours saved an let this machine do the hard work for you

By: Chris A

By: Mark C

13 September 2016

I''ve owned and used one of these for two years now and it''s great! It''s reasonable priced and has a 3 year guarantee. It can get through the belts quite quickly, so get a fair few or you''ll run out, but they''re fairly cheap. I''ve used it on wood and metal and it''s great on both. I would definately recommend it - I''m nothing to do with silverline and getting nothing for this review.

I,m an avid diy person I have tools going back over 50 years, it was a surprise to me, that I have found that the Power Belt sander not only done the job, I bought it for but I find it is now part of my tool box it is something that I now try first when I''m sanding difficult shapes. I recommend it for any one who does sanding.

By: Bob H

12 September 2016

I bought this tool to sand some recessed areas I could not reach with my other power sanders or by hand. It did an excellent job getting right into corners and close to edges. The adjustable handle made access very easy with no motor sticking out the side there was very little restriction to its use. The quick easy tool less belt change is also a bonus. I have now found may uses for this sander not only for prep for decorating but have also used it in restoring my classic car sanding welds back (using an emery belt.

This Sander is one of the most useful Tools I have ever purchased. Since I bought it I have wondered how I managed without it before. The delivery from my Dealer (Bamford Trading) was within 36 hours of placing my order. I am very satisfied with the Sander and level of service received. The price represents excellent VFM. Fully recommended.


15 August 2016

I bought this to remove quite a lot of rust from the box sections on the underside of my car. It was ideal because some of the rust was in quite a bit of hard to reach places.This file worked a treat .I have also used it to ease the bottom of my shed door as it was sticking and it was easy with the door still hung. Very easy to use and changing the sanding belts is very easy. I would recommend this tool. Excellent.

For the money this is a good tool, though lacks power compared with some other similar tools that can be bought. Slim design means you can get into narrow spaces where others cant. does the job but takes a little longer. Adjustable arm makes it that more versatile for any job.

By: Paul S

It arrived in excellent time frame (next day) and is well made. The variable speed and angle are great features. The machine is noisy so extended use will require ear protection. Take care and practice if not used before to avoid excess material removal as can be quite aggressive if not careful.

By: Attanasio

21 May 2017

At that price, what more could one ask? Does its job smoothly. Its limited power has to be taken into account, but it suffices for most jobs I have in mind. Its slight bulk is certainly a plus, as is its light weight. Durability is probably limited, but the other machinrs of this type I''ve had did not last very long anyway, at twice (or more) the price. I''d buy it again with no hesitations.

By: Andrew A

The Silverstorm 260W Power Belt File is a versatile all round detail sander and de-burrer which can be used in restricted places. The belt is liable to be displaced when using the pointed end at the highest speed, however the belt remains in place when used gently at the lower speeds. (The belt is easily replaced by plunging the point onto a hard surface, the finger of the file then clicks into the open position to allow the belt to be replaced and then is tensioned by use of the release button. The tool would benefit from a positive belt lock on the release button which would prevent the pressure on the point displacing the belt.) In conclusion this is a fine tool which would be perfect with a positive belt lock.

I was not expecting very much from this tool due to the very low price and relatively small motor. I have however been very pleasently surprised buy its build quality and performance . The longditudal motor and slim profile differs from many other similar products and makes this tool surprisingly versatile in tight spaces. I''ve so far used it primarily for dressing mig welds on car bodywork and it has proved very capable. A friend borrowed it for the afternoon to try out on a floor he was sanding to see if it was any use in getting into the tight corners such as up to skirting boards that his belt sander could not reach. He ordered one the same day! I''m sure its not worth comparing with the equivilant bosch or makita etc but within its limits and for occasional use I realy can''t fault it. I don''t know how long it will last but I did registar (after a struggle) for the three year guarentee which if honoured would make this tool outstanding value for money.

Fair price, fast delivery. Motor overheats quicker than it should. Belt runs off centre and there''s no adjustment. I don''t expect it to last as long as my Black and Decker did (37 years), but I won''t live long enough to find out. Ö¿Ö

I bought one of your power files several months ago, but it failed for not obvious reason, definitely not damage or overwork. Unfortunately I didn''''t register it so couldn''''t claim on guarantee. How''''re, I must have faith in your product as I recently bought another one.

It really is amazing what you get here for 25 quid. The ability to chew through metals, wood and plastics with hardly any pressure applied is easily on par with more expensive items
