South Bend SB1097 - 6" x 108" VS Oscillating Edge Sander
SB1097 6" x 108" Variable-Speed Oscillating Edge Sander
A powerful sander with touch screen controls for precise accuracy.
Industrial strength plus ultimate convenience right at your fingertips–that was the approach to designing the South Bend SB1097 world-class edge sander with auxiliary spindle sanding table.
The 3 HP motor and digital control for variable speed will take your edge and contour sanding to a whole new level of power and precision.
The VFD-M inverter gives you 3-phase, variable-speed power while operating on standard single-phase power source. The VFD saves you money by increasing the efficiency of the motor and decreasing electricity use. It reduces wear and tear on the motor which extends the life of the sander.
The sanding head tilts from 0–90° allowing to edge sand at any angle on the heaviest of workpieces with the full support of the large precision-ground cast-iron table.
The table raises and lowers via a handwheel, making table height adjustments easy and fast, even with a workpiece mounted to it.
And you get two high-quality industrial machines in one, with the addition of an integrated oscillating spindle sander with 1-1/2", 2", and 3" interchangeable drums and auxiliary table.
Answer all of your busy shop’s edge and contour sanding needs.
