In Detail


The design has been updated and simplified from the traditional belt driven sander. Both the belt & disc functions are powered directly from the motor shaft.

The disc sander side has a 200mm diameter disc complimented by an aluminium work table with 45 degree tilt, secured on both sides. The mitre guide fits into a T slot in the work table. Thus allowing the disc to be used for accurate sanding of square edges as well as bevels, mitres and even compound angles.

The sanding belt can be also used in horizontal or vertical mode. It can also be locked at an angle in between. This is also sometimes more comfortable when using it for sharpening tools. The sanding belt has a dedicated work table with tilt function and a T slot for the mitre guide.

The open drum end of the belt can be used for sanding curved edges, cut on a bandsaw or scroll saw.

When the time comes to replace the sanding belt. There is a quick release tension lever and tracking adjustment to balance the new belt.

The unique feature on this machine is the inclusion of the dust collector. Sitting underneath the sanding belt, is a powered fan which creates a powerful airflow.  Thus extracting the dust from both the disc and the belt. The dust is collected in a bag which also has a quick release clamp for fast removal and a zip for emptying.

Supplied with 1 x 80 grit sanding belt, 1 x 80 grit self adhesive sanding disc, dust bag, 1.8m power cable and UK 3 pin plug.
