  • Footprint: 13-1/2" deep x 22-1/4" wide
  • Approx. shipping weight: 160 lbs.

Variable Speed

2.47 to 17.3 FPM

The W1740 features a variable speed knob which allows you to increase the feed rate from 2.47–17.3 FPM. The variable speed option is ideal when changing between sanding hard and softwood.

Bench Mount

The base of the W1740 Drum Sander has holes that allow it to be mounted to a workbench or used with the optional D2275 Tool Stand. This compact unit is perfect for the shop with limited space as the footprint is only 3-1/2-inch deep x 22-1/4-inch wide.

Specifications

  • Sanding motor: 1-1/2 HP, 13 Amp, 115V, single-phase, 3450 RPM
  • Conveyor motor: 1/8 HP, 0.3A, 115V, single-phase, 5-55 RPM
  • Drum surface speed: 2300 FPM
  • Maximum stock dimensions: 12" wide x 3-1/2" thick
  • Minimum stock length: 8"
  • Sanding drum size: 4"
  • Sanding belt size: 3" x 70" hook & loop
  • Dust collection port: 2-1/2"
  • Variable feed speed: 2.47-17.3 FPM

Adjustable Depth of Cut

Easily adjust the depth of cut with the simple turn of the crank handle. Each full turn of the crank handle raises the conveyor table approximately 0.025-inch (0.64 mm) for precise adjustments.

Dust Collection

This drum sander features a 2-1/2-inch dust port. When connected to a dust collection system, the dust hood directs suction to remove harmful wood and abrasive dust from your work area. This also decreases dust cake formation on your roller allowing for more efficient sanding.

Features

  • Variable speed conveyor motor
  • Variable speed feed control
  • Two adjustable pressure rollers
  • Gear reduction table adjustment
  • Industrial duty conveyor belt
  • Hook and loop sanding drum

The sander worked great while it worked. After a bit, the drive motor stripped the PLASTIC gear inside. That part is no longer available. There is an upgrade for $256. All it is, is a larger motor but still with plastic gears.( can't just replace the gears). They are making the machines different now but the upgrade does not convert the previous model to the current model. Therefore, I have a $700 boat anchor. No solution from the company. Just $256 each time the plastic gear strips. Sure wish I would have seen many of the comments posted on other sites first. I will never buy anything from them. They are no help. They even admitted they changed the design because of the failure rate. Good for them, not for me. Pay a little more and buy a quality tool.

I was angered and frustrated by the run around I received from Shop Fox when I attempted to resolve a problem requiring a technical question and possibly the purchase of a spare part! I definetly needed consumables(sandpaper rolls). ShopFox told me to contact my "Authorized dealer", which in this case was supposedly Amazon! Amazon customer service had no clue, no info on service parts or sandpapers available! After numerous discussions with various customer service people at Amazon, they called ShopFox and got the info for me and the issue was resolved! The lesson is, do not purchase ShopFox from Amazon, since they cannot service you, nor do they have the data to do so! ShopFox will only tell you to purchase their product from the handful of dealers listed on their website, some of which I am familiar with and would never do business with! I have 3 ShopFox machines......they are my last! I will never buy that brand again! I love Amazon, but they should not sell something they cannot service!

A solid, hefty machine that does what it's supposed to do. I needed assistance getting it out of the truck and into place in my workshop, but all that weight helps the sander do its job. Takes 16 amps; I don't try to remove a lot of wood in a single pass. Changing the sandpaper strips is easy. Dust collection is no better or worse than any similar dust-maker, which is why I keep abrasive machines in a room separate from my workshop. My only real complaint is the the gears which run the crank that elevates and lowers the conveyor belt slipped out of contact with each other the first day. The fix for that is a little convoluted (there's a brief paragraph about it in the manual), but it works. The manual is thorough, particularly about maintenance and replacing worn out parts. Glad I bought this machine.

Was damaged in shipping but company was quick to respond. Works great for the wood working I do and I am happy to have it in my wood shop. I could not be more pleased with it.
