SB1097 South Bend 6" x 108" Variable-Speed Oscillating Edge Sander

Power plus precision—the ultimate sander for serious woodworkers.

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.

The SB1097 comes with a 2-year warranty and is built to South Bend high-precision industrial standards.

The SB1097 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.

The South Bend Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts are available online and shipped from the South Bend parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
