Laguna, Compact 37″ 1K Widebelt Sander
The Laguna Tools 37″ wide belt sander is a perfect fit for small woodworking shops.
The belt length is 60″ which is the same length as several larger machines. The longer belt means it will not only last longer due to more abrasive material it will also run cooler.
This machine is equipped with 1 combination head. This means you can sand either using the drum or the sanding platen or both at the same time.
Due to the large HP motor (10 HP) the machine is capable of dimensioning even wide boards. This is important for customers who do not own a thickness planer. When you use the machine to dimension your work only very aggressive paper 60 or 80 grit should be used.
The heavy carpet feed belt is powered by a separate 1HP motor and has two feed speeds 15′ and 49′ per minute.
You can adjust the thickness in 3 ways:
- Manual hand-wheel on the bottom of the machine.
- By pressing the up or down arrow the table will move in desired direction. By tapping these same arrows the machine will move an exact amount each tap.
- The auto thickness gauge will measure your wood piece and automatically set the table to the thickness of the piece of wood inserted.
