Wen 6321 Review

Executive Summary:

The WEN 6321 is a small belt sander designed for occasional use, yet still providing a powerful motor. It has front rollers, which enable good, close-finish sanding in small spaces, and is lightweight, compact, and easy to use.

It would make a suitable addition to the average householder's basic repairs kit.

Who Is It For?

While it is definitely not even close to a professional or heavy-duty belt sander, the WEN is ideal for those who simply want to have a suitable tool to hand for quick home repairs, such as replacing banisters or stripping down doors.

If you're just moving in to your first place, or have just bought your own home for the first time, it's well worth adding the WEN 6321 belt sander to your list of household essentials.

This easy to use machine will certainly come in handy at some point and if you enjoy carpentry, even as a hobby – you’ll probably love it. 

Design:

The WEN 6321 is a simple, easy-to-use sander ideal for those with little or no experience of power tools. This is an extremely lightweight machine – it weighs about 6 pounds only, which makes it compact, highly portable, easy to work with and ideal if you’re not the most capable handyman out there.

It also helps that the handle is comfortable and great for those of you who are left handed too, which often isn’t often the case with these machines.

Pros:

  • Ideal for basic DIY projects
  • A suitable sander for beginners who are new to woodworking or power tools
  • The detachable dust bag – it’s spacious enough, but the fact that you can quickly empty it out and get on with your work makes things even better and more convenient
  • Quick-release sanding belt – the quick release sanding belt is incredibly easy to change, but it also works great for adjusting grits and swapping sandpapers

Cons:

  • The tracking can prove frustrating
  • Not suitable for large or heavy jobs, or high volume work loads

Value for Money:

A reasonably priced basic sander. A sensible purchase if you know you won't use a belt sander often, but want to have one around in case you need it.

The WEN 6321 is great for DIY enthusiasts, but every home owner should consider having this useful little machine around, just in case something goes wrong.
