Delta 6 x 48 Inch Belt Sander
Purpose: Belt sanders are machines equipped with an abrasive belt that rotate at high speeds. When material is fed into the moving belt, the abrasive media on the belt sands the material away and allows the operator to rework the shape of the material. The machine is equipped with a table that is generally oriented perpendicular to the belt, but can be adjusted to produce angled bevels up to 45°. The table also includes a slot for a miter gauge which also allows the operator to produce angled bevels. The abrasive belts can be removed and replaced and come in varying degrees of coarseness. Low grits are rougher and higher grits are smoother.
