  • Description

    The Phillipson RBS1 reciprocating bobbin sander allow fast, accurate sanding of most radii and similar intricate shapes as found in patternmaking and furniture manufacture.

    The machine is supplied complete with a set of bobbin mandrels constructed out of aluminium and steel for durable use. Accompanying interchangeable table inserts for each bobbin size  provide good support of the work piece. The bobbin speed has been carefully selected to ensure effective sanding on all bobbin sizes.

    Phillipson bobbin sanders reciprocate in an up/ down motion, as well as rotating to provide uniform sanding of the work piece. The entire reciprocating assembly is mounted on precision ground steel shafts with four integral bronze bush bearings independently lubricated to provide ease of servicing.

    The Phillipson RBS1 also features a variable bobbin height adjustment to facilitate sanding on the entire bobbin length.

    All Phillipson bobbin sanders have specially designed bobbin seating to ensure a positive location of the bobbin in the machine arbour. This facilitates fast changeovers from one mandrel diameter to another.
