I think I know the “bounce” or chatter you are talking about. I get it occasionally on my sander and it occurs mostly when I’m sanding end grain or a combination of end and long grain. I can over come it by bringing the piece slowly but firmly into contact with the belt. I do not use a fence which can also contribute to the chatter by creating a bit of a pinching affect, especially if the piece is not resting evenly and firmly on the belt.
