Features for this DDS-237 Dual Drum Sander
This Dual Drum Sander is loaded with features and available in configurations to suite your needs. All Powermatic Dual Drum Sanders are protected with a full magnetic on-off switch. The Drum Sanders are enclosed in an all-steel cabinet. Compartments with latching doors at the bottom enclose the motor, drive systems and provided spacious storage. The full-width hinged steel top opens to make working with the drums and roller system easy. The Powermatic DDS-237 features dual steel drums spinning at a consistent 1700-RPM that are precisely machined and then given a hard durometer rubber coating that ensures a flat, non-marring surface.
The rear drum is independently adjustable, which allows fine-tuning, especially when it is equipped with a different grit paper than is on the front drum. A special graduated knob at either end of the rear drum makes setting this height for the abrasive grit being used both easy and accurate.
The pressure rollers are also fully adjustable. The easy to use adjusters are located on top at either end of the rollers for easy access. These adjusters are designed to be rugged and to hold their adjustment during long periods of use.
A heavy cast iron table has been [precisely machined to insure flatness. The table is raised and lowered on four jackscrews turned simultaneously by a slip-free chain drive. The chain drive also keeps the table level at all heights. The chain drive has an automatic tensioning system built in to reduced setup and adjustment.
The 1/4 HP feed motor drives the conveyor belt and is controlled by a two-speed forward/reverse gearbox that produces feed rates of 8 and 12 SFPM (surface feet per minute). The Powermatic DDS-237 was designed with the industrial environment in mind. It is tough, easy to use and easy to maintain.
