From the Manufacturer
The model 15-005S M1, 6 by 89-inch tilting head oscillating edge belt sander from General International, is equipped with a powerful 110/220 dual voltage, 1.5 HP Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled continuous duty motor, and is designed for heavy duty hobby or medium commercial applications. The complete head tilts to a horizontal position for long piece finishing or can be locked in any position for sanding custom millwork. The 15-005S M1 features a precision polished, graphite coated steel platen to reduce friction and heat build-up for longer sanding belt life, a quick release belt tension lever for quick easy belt changes and easy, accurate adjustments for belt tension and tracking. The cast-iron main table can be adjusted up or down for full belt use and also comes with an adjustable fence that can be easily removed when not required. The cross grain action caused by the oscillation, ¼-inch total vertical travel, optimizes sanding efficiency and extends belt life by using a larger area of the belts’ surface. The quick touch on-off safety switch with removable key is positioned on the motor for easy access in any head position from horizontal to vertical and the included cast-iron miter gauge is lockable in the table slot providing an angled stop for angled end or edge sanding. This all-round sanding station will perform very well on wood, metal and plastics and the tilting ability and the adjustable height removable steel end table, for sanding curves, add to the overall versatility of this machine. Note: The 15-005S M1 is factory wired for 220 volt operation. Conversion for 110 volt operation should be performed by a qualified and properly licensed electrician.
