Delta International # SA180 Disc Sander

Delta International’s uneasy addition to the world of disc sanders appears to be an uneasy compromise between a bench-top sander and a fully mobile portable sander.

The manufacturers sure do make extreme claims for it, saying it “sands wood, metal, plastics, ceramics and other material; sharpens scissors, knives and chisels; buffs, polishes and removes rust”. If it is as versatile as they claim it is then the price is a steal at $139.99 and will be a precious addition to any commercial or home workshop.

The Delta International # SA180 Disc Sander runs off an induction, ball bearing motor and features automatic belt tensioning with handy belt tracking control for convenient belt adjustment. The belt platen is removable for finishing curved or odd-shaped work. There is a removable side panel with a single lock-knob for easy belt changing.

The sander comes with 2 tilting tables, 100 grit 1″W x 42″L abrasive belt, 100-grit 8″ diameter abrasive disc, miter gauge, wrench and instruction manual.

Here are the specifications if you are still skeptical:
* Motor: 1/3HP, 60 Hz, 120V single phase induction motor with lighted rocker on/off switch
* Tables: 5″ x 5″ die-cast aluminum belt table tilts 45 degrees down; 3-1/2″ x 7-1/4″ disc table tilts 60 degrees down
* Accessories: Threaded power take-off for mounting accessory flexible shaft with attachments
* Speed: 3,000 SF/M belt speed
* Revs: 1,725 RPM disc speed
* Weight: 62 lbs.
* Dimensions: 19 1/2″ H x 25 1/4″L x 15″ W
