Stationary Sanders offer the greatest level of power in finishing sanding tools. The large electric motors and sturdy positioning combine to let you make professional-looking projects in very little time. There are several types of bench sanders, and each is ideal for specific applications. All of these sanding tools come in varying tiers of performance and durability and vary in their use from home hobby crafts to industrial-level power.
Drum sanders work by using a large rotating sanding drum to file the work material. Exceptional for wide pieces, drum sanders make quick work of cabinet doors, small table tops and similar items. For curved pieces, spindle sanders provide optimal performance. Spindle sanders use a vertical spindle cartridge that fits curved surfaces well, oscillates up and down to prevent wear on the cartridge and ensures exposure to a clean sanding surface.
Stationary disc sanders use a large spinning disc to provide finishing and buffing power. Because of their large surface and rigid structure, disc sanders work well with smaller, flat pieces and provide very fast smoothing action. If you work with very large pieces, edge sanders deliver a large, continuous sanding face for things like doors and larger furniture. Edge/belt sanders are useful for industrial fabrication and have a place in every professional workshop.
When you need extra versatility, belt & disc combo sanders deliver great results. You can use the discs for flat materials and the belt sanders for curved material. With the combo models, you can finish every piece of your project.
Take the time to consider the pieces that you make and the specific machine sander you need to finish them. Upgrade to modern power performance and get your work finished in less time with consistent results
