This Sander Stand may be removed if you don't need horizontal type often. Makes the whole machine lighter.
The Motor (2hp) is powered directly from the household wall outlet through the VFD Kit. All the wheels are made of aluminum. More detailed info regarding wheels is available from my other listings.(combine machine weight could be in excess of 150 lb). Listing photos must serve with the basic assembly because there is no manual or additional instructions. All necessary adjustments except for belt tracking are done during testing. When assembled it should be ready for work right out of the box (so to say).
Approximate arm-tightening position for the proper belt tracking is marked on the Platen Tooling Arm. It may change slightly when different brands and belt thickness are used. It is a full-featured, industrial quality, space saving, small footprint and compact unit. Each unit is build and assembled individually. It is not a result of mass production.Based on the same design, it may however differ slightly in dimensions, color or finish. No unit will be sent without going through testing. It will be put together, mounted on table, powered and run.
At this stage adjustment will be done, to make sure that every part is working fine. Later on you may find it useful to make certain improvements, like perhaps spark trap, eye and V-belt shields, etc.If you own a compressor I would also recommend blowing the dust off regularly in order to keep the work space nice and clean. Additions are possible like perhaps Rubber Contact Wheel or the Small Wheel Attachment. Because each machine is individually build and assembled, there may be small design differences between the listing photos and the actual machine you will receive.
