It is the unrivalled heavy duty build quality and precision engineering which marks these sanders out from the general run of imported alternatives. The machines using the same heavy base designs and matching or even improving on the same strict tolerances achieved by Mr Phillipson in Gainsborough.

The single and double sided sanding disc machines are manufactured in diameter sizes of 16, 24 and 30”. Combination disc and belt configurations are also offered incorporating a 16” disc and 6” wide horizontal/vertical belt. The contour belt model features a vertical belt travelling at selected speeds over a choice of flat or rounded radius profile bars supported by a heavy cast iron base and work table.

The Phillipson range of sanders are not only manufactuerd in the UK by Daltons Wadkin, but also supported by their extensive Support Department offering national service and maintenance coverage for the long duration of the machines life.
