In Detail

Powermatic 2 Year Warranty

Packed full of innovation and real life design features that work, this drum finishing sander has to be at the top of the list.
N.B. These sanders are used for fine finishing, they are not intended to be used as a thicknesser or with coarse abrasive for significant stock removal. In all instances, they are intended to be used with planed and thicknessed material.

As with all Powermatic machines, this machine is very well made, cast iron where it matters and cast alloy for the intricate parts. One design feature that really helps is the LED control panel. This gives real time information on conveyor feed speed, sanding work load and drum height. The patented Feed Logic system prevents overloading the machine and enhances the finish.

On a single arm machine such as this, making sure that the arm is parallel to the sanding conveyor is paramount. Adjustment of this is such an easy task that it will become second nature, improving your work.

Changing abrasives is also made easy, thanks to easy access to the securing clips. The conveyor belt is pulled, which evens the load, and is spring tensioned and fitted with a tracking device to keep the belt centred. Standard extension tables are made from thick gauge sheet steel to resist flexing. There is a heavily built guide system to control the drum height, with hardened slideways and an adjustable jib strip to control the smoothness of movement. The one-piece steel cabinet has a handy storage cupboard, and is fitted with wheels for mobility. A single 100mm dust extraction outlet is provided, efficient dust extraction is vital with these machines, please make sure your system is adequate. Minimum sanding length only 60mm.

This machine has world class design features, giving usability and sophistication that is unmatched.
