Sand-Rite Sander Sands Right
"It has a direct drive for fewer moving parts and less maintenance," says Marcus Kaplan, third generation owner of Sand-Rite Manufacturing Company. "We use only Baldor motors, which are American made and we feel are the best motor in the world for quality and performance. That's why we give an 18-month warranty while most competitive sanders offer only 90 days."
The sanding drum is available in five diameters from 2 to 8 in. The operator inflates it with air as needed to match the contour of the piece being sanded. The B-12 brush head sands irregular shapes without loss of detail. As the brushes wear, fresh abrasive stored in the head is released by turning the head.
The pneumatic drum is made from cast zinc. Lower cost imports are made with sand-cast aluminum. Aluminum is softer and can be very porous and go out of round, he explains.
Another feature is that Sand-Rite sanders come fully assembled. The DB-612-DLX sells for $799 FOB, Chicago plus 8 percent S&H in the continental U.S.
Sand-Rite's specialty is coated abrasives for their machines and others. They stock all grits from #24 to #400. They also can custom make any size belt, sleeve or roll in aluminum oxide with resin over resin bonding on cloth backing in flexible J weights or X weight.
