Powered by a 1.6 HP, 10,000 RPM air motor with a dead-man switch, the portable belt sander interchangeably uses contact wheels from 9/16” to 5” OD and 1/4” to 1” wide with a constant 42” belt length and 5500 SFPM surface speed. It may be equipped for use with 2” wide belts at no extra cost.
Contact wheels may be flat-faced or shaped to fit a desired fillet radius. Cloth wheels are available for finishing, as is a 5” long platen for flat work. Stock removal is generally done against the contact wheel while the slack of the belt behind the wheel is used for blending.
