Covington’s Sanders are high-quality, multipurpose units. Available in a variety of sizes and compositions, there is something in this line of units for a range purposes. Sanders can grind and polish small and large pieces of glass and stone. These units are also excellent for deburring, shaping, cleaning, sharpening, and smoothing work pieces. Every sander comes fitted with a 220g silicon carbide sanding belt. These versatile units are an excellent choice for beginners and professionals alike. Glass customers believe every coldworking shop should have a Covington Sander!
When deciding between the sanders, it is important to know your work. If you are only ever working small pieces such as jewelry then the small sander will probably suit your needs. However, for a little more you can purchase the Commercial Sander, which provides more usable workspace and longer belt life. It is important to remember the price of the consumables when pricing your purchase. The belts will add additional cost throughout the life of the unit. The advantage to the Deluxe Commercial Sander is the 1/2hp motor with a capacitor; this provides more than sufficient torque for working large pieces and pressing against the belt.
