DELTA Machinery unveiled two new products today geared for the professional woodworker demanding precision in their work. The DELTA® X5 drum sander, model 31-260X, and the DELTA® X5 15-inch planer, model 22-790X, were presented at Booth W1501 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. during the 2008 International Builders’ Show from Feb. 13 to Feb. 16.
Equipped with a 1.5 horsepower two speed motor, the new DELTA® X5 18-inch by 36-inch drum sander, model 31-260X, is capable of 2,210 or 3,300 surface feet per minute (SFPM) with both 5-80 or 4-120 grit sanding wraps included.
