Grizzly G0459 12 inch 1.5 HP Baby Drum Sander

The G0459 1-1/2 HP Baby Drum Sander packs a wallop when it comes to sanding wood up to 12″ wide.

This machine comes equipped with a 1-1/2 HP sanding motor to spin the 4″ sanding drum 2127 FPM and a 2.5–17.3 FPM variable-speed conveyor motor.

The correct speed to use depends on the type of stock you are using (hardwood vs. softwood) and the stage of finish you are at with that workpiece.

A gear-drive table elevation handwheel allows you fine-tune your finish.

A steel dust scoop combined with a 2-1/2″ dust port maximizes dust collection efficiency.
