A belt and disc sander that will appeal to those hobby woodworkers looking for a better quality sander than the run of the mill. The main cast iron body houses both the motor and the no-volt-release switch, as well as forming the mounting point for the sanding table. The table can be used either on the 200mm disc or on the 100mm wide belt when raised from the horizontal to the vertical position. Changing the elevation of the sanding belt is easy using two very accessible captive bolts which, when loosened, allow the table to be rotated to either position. For added safety, especially when the sander is elevated into the vertical position, the belt has guarding at the back and just below the sanding stop fence. The generous-sized sanding platform can be used with either the disc or the belt and is both easy to adjust and firm when locked in position. Many sanders have no guarding behind the disc or at best a poorly fitting guard. The AS408, however, has an excellent guard assembly which fits accurately around the disc and incorporates a dust extraction point under the table. The 35mm extraction outlet is coupled to the belt so that the extraction can be left fixed to the one outlet and both functions of the machine used without the need to disconnect the dust extraction hose. The belt change is simplicity itself with a quick action belt release and simple tracking controls. Supplied with a self-adhesive disc, aluminium mitre fence and standard 100 x 915mm belt.
