South Bend SB1097 VS Oscillating Edge Sander

Industrial strength plus ultimate convenience right at your fingertips—that was the approach to designing the SB1097 world-class edge sander with auxiliary spindle sanding table.

The 3 HP motor and digital control for variable speed will take your edge and contour sanding to a whole new level of power and precision.

The sanding head tilts from 0–90° allowing you to edge sand at any angle you need on the heaviest of workpieces with full support of the large precision-ground cast-iron table.

The table raises and lowers via handwheel, making table height adjustments easy and fast, even with a workpiece mounted to it.

And you get two high-quality industrial machines in one, with the addition of an integrated oscillating spindle sander with 1-1/2″, 2″, and 3″ interchangeable drums and auxiliary table.

With digitally controlled variable speed and heavy-duty features of this versatile machine, The SB1097 will answer all of your busy shop’s edge and contour sanding needs.
