La Vergne, TN – The new JET® Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinders are ideal additions to fabrication and machine shops for grinding castings or deburring and finishing ferrous and non-ferrous metal work pieces. To accommodate a wide range of grinding needs on either flat or angular surfaces, these powerful performers come in three sizes, including 1” x 42”, 2” x 48” and 2”x 60” belt diameters.
The belt grinders are built for the long haul with heavy duty, casted bodies and die casted belt levers. A vented full motor shroud keeps dust and chips away from the motor shaft. The motor also is protected by a thermal reset to prevent overheating.
Three-wheel design provides optimal grinding surfaces. Abrasive belts are equipped with urethane drive and idle wheels for dependable and long-lasting service. An intuitive, lever-based belt tensioning process makes belt changes quick and easy
Large throat clearance is provided, both vertically and horizontally, for grinding large and odd-shaped work pieces. Adjustment of the tool rest and platen are tool-less to save operator set up time.
Safety measures include an innovative dust port that directs sparks to the rear of the grinder and away from the operator. The 3 in. dust port mounts easily to a metalworking dust collector. Also, the power switch has a safety key to prevent accidental startups. All three belt grinders are CSA/US certified.
The belt grinders are driven by motors ranging from ¾ to 3 HP with constant belt speeds of 5,500 to 8,000, respectively. The 2” x 60” machine is available in single or three-phase models to allow installation in different shop environments.
The JET 1” x 42” Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinder (577100, $?), JET 2” x 48” Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinder (577125, $?), JET 2” x 60” Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinder – 1Ph (577150, $?) and JET 2” x 60” Three Wheel Belt Bench Grinder – 3 Ph (577153, $?) are covered by a 2-year warranty, as well as JET’s RED AssuranceTM, the industry’s most dependable service and support guarantee program.
