Delta Introduces Heavy Duty 12" Disc Sander
August 9, 2012 | 1:28 pm CDT

ANDERSON, SC – DELTA Power Equipment Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of stationary and benchtop woodworking machinery and equipment, has introduced a new 12-inch Disc Sander, Model 31-140, with heavy duty cast iron construction and heavy duty steel bevel assembly supporting the table.

The DELTA Disc Sander features a new design on the table tilt lock. Instead of two knobs to loosen or tighten the tilt table, the new disc sander has one easy-to-use dual-purpose bevel table adjustment and lock, which secures the table on both sides with just the one handle. The 17-1/4-inch x 6-1/4-inch tilting cast-iron table has left and right stops at 22.5°, 45° and 90°.

The disc sander features a 12-inch diameter heavy duty steel disc for fast and accurate sanding. A convenient top-mounted manual brake stops the sanding disc in seconds. It also features a powerful 1/2 HP, 120V motor, running at 1725 RPM, for long-lasting, smooth performance and an integral dust collection fan that draws dust away from the table and into the hose for cleaner sanding operation. The dust hose, with 2-1/4-inch O.D. connectors, attaches quickly to any standard shop vacuum.

The new DELTA Disc Sander also features a 3/8-inch x 3/4-inch miter gauge slot machined into the table for projects that require sanding an angle or straight edge. The cast-iron base has pre-drilled base holes for easy bench mounting. It comes with a miter gauge, hose with 2-1/4-inch O.D. connectors, one 80 grit abrasive disc, and wrenches.

Available accessories include a Deluxe Miter Gauge, Model 34-928 and 2-packs of 12-inch PSA aluminum oxide sanding discs in 50, 80 and 120 grits.

The new DELTA 12-inch Disc Sander, Model 31-140 is backed by a Five-Year Warranty and will be available this summer at woodworking distributors and retailers.
