In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

Designed for use primarily with metals, the Axminster Trade Metal Linisher & Polisher has a multitude of uses. The single speed 375W motor carries a 785 x 50mm belt at 498m/min and can handle a host of jobs, from grinding metals to sharpening lathe tools for both metal and wood lathes. This is a workshop machine you will keep finding uses for. If you are a model engineer, the grinding, de-burring and polishing capabilities are second to none. It’s also perfect for the jewellery maker or silversmith, you can easily take off the flashing with the abrasive belt. In fact, if you work with metal in any way, this is the machine for you.

This machine has been designed for very fast belt changes. The tracking can be adjusted simply and rapidly and it has enough power to lightly grind tools without overheating or bogging down. It comes with a fixed table which has a grid of holes to allow the dust to fall through on its surface. The belt platter is adjustable to ensure that the belt runs true and comes with a graphite plate to reduce friction on certain tasks. The belt tension is released by a shaped handle; a spring-loaded drop pin automatically holds the tension off whilst changing the belt. Belt tracking is via a knurled knob, just a 1/4 turn will cover everything. The belt arm is made from 10mm plate steel, whilst the base is also 5mm plate steel. Four adjustable rubber feet screw into the base for bench mounting, or you can bolt the machine directly to your worktable.

This machine comes with the unique 'Twist n Fix' mop arbor system. You simply fit the drive arbor to the machine, the mop carrying arbor simply twists and fixes onto the drive arbor. You can change a mop within a few seconds, no tools required. Additional mop arbors are available, either as singles or in packs of 3, so you can easily keep a mop on an arbor for speedy changes.

There are many types of mops, felt wheels, nylon abrasive wheels and a rubber bonded abrasive wheel available for this machine, everything you need for all kinds of metalworking. We also have a dedicated metal dust extractor available to keep your workshop clean. Everything you need for all kinds of metalworking, crafts and hobbies.
