Expandable Drums Make Grit Changes Quick & Easy
Steel drum with resilient rubber rim allows fast, easy grit changes by stopping the machine, slipping off the old belt, and sliding on a new one. Angled slots in the heavy rubber rim expand during rotation to anchor the finishing belt in place for no-slip sanding. Made from a specially developed, soft and durable rubber compound that flexes to fit contours or quickly remove grinding marks. Can be rotated either direction to vary hardness of sanding surface. Fits ½", 5/8", ¾", and 1" diameter shafts with included nested bushings.
