Disc Sanders are high-powered, stationary sanders that quickly sand down wood, metal or other materials, depending on the wheels you have attached. Their large fixed wheels present a large sanding surface to work with bigger pieces.
Disc sanders come with replaceable wheels in a variety of grits for gradual finishing work. Stock up on at least 60-80 grit for your first pass, 100-150 for your second and 180-220 for your final pass. You need more fine discs because these bench and stationary accessories load up on sanding debris more frequently than coarser discs. Metal work requires extra-fine grits, in some cases up to 3,000 grit for mirror-sheen finishes.
Industrial disc sanders offer a variety of precision and convenience features. Tilting discs let you set an exact angle for more precise sanding work. Some models lower the base completely below the sanding wheel to let you sand a surface the size of the entire wheel and finish your job in half the time it takes a rigid sanding machine. Emergency stop buttons protect your safety in a hazardous situation. Industrial disc sanders operate at higher RPMs than traditional sanders for easier work on metal pieces. Dust collection keeps sanding debris out of your eyes and off of your piece for safety and less cleanup.
If you don't need full-sized bench disc sanders, get a tabletop model that dismounts and stores away once you finish your project. These smaller models run at high speeds and have the same grit options as larger sanders. Their small size makes them ideal for home workshops.
Disc sanders save much time compared to hand sanding. These bench and stationary machinery tools have replaceable discs to work with multiple materials and can achieve ultra-smooth finishes. Check out our selection of disc sanders and modernize your home or business workshop today.
