The 13mm electric belt sander from Silverline is ideal for descaling, sanding and polishing of welds, shaping mortises and joints and sanding tasks in difficult corners and hard-to-reach places. Designed for use on wood, metal and plastics, its 130mm long file arm has a maximum belt speed of 550m/min and is adjustable to the required working angle.
Featuring variable speed control via an easily accessible dial, you are able to select and change the speed of belt revolution in order to achieve a specific rate of removal and finish, depending on the task at hand and material you are working on. At the base of the file arm sits a tensioning / release screw which tightens or loosens the belt to improve performance, as well as making removal and replacement easy.
Dust extraction is possible during operation by connecting your method of suction to the adapter on the side of the tool, at the base of the file. Reviewers have commented on the good balance of this tool thanks to the in-line motor, rather than a more unstable side-positioned motor.
Compatible with 13 x 457mm belts of varying grit, including Silverline's for an assorted 5pce set. Supplied with this tool are two sanding belts - 1 x 80 grit and 1 x 120 grit - so you can get started straight away.
