SandX produces a full range of sanding equipment for commercial shops and educational needs. All of the SandX sanders are built with class leading features and high performance components woodworkers would expect from a high quality manufacturer.
The CWI-S6089XS Oscillating Tilting Edge sander (XS stands for Xtra Special) is truly a unique multi-use machine designed to be an edgesander, curve sander and a flat sander. It is very similar to the CWI-S6089 but with a number of advanced features and performance.
Like the CWI-S6089 it utilizes a 6” x 89” sanding belt running on its edge to perform edge cleaning, squaring, smoothing operations on drawers, doors, boxes, and of course any edges the user wishes to sand. The sanding belt can also be rotated over from vertical to lying flat and any angle in between for sanding jobs with special requirements. The XS sander though operates by oscillating the sanding belt up and down in a constant ¼” cycle to ensure better sanding belt life by keeping it cooler in the cut.
The CWI-S6089XS also offers a 1.5 HP 110/1/60 18 amp motor (9 amp 220/1/60) and a magnetic safety switch for overload and under voltage protection. The magnetic switch is a very important upgrade over similar sanders for use in educational or industrial settings. The sanding belt runs cooler because of a graphite backing supplied along the 33” platen underneath it.
Improved from the CWI-S6089 is the way the 10” x 29.5” cast iron work table adjusts. Instead of manually lifting the table by hand the XS machine has a rack and pinion mechanical height adjustment with use of a large handwheel. This allows the operator to utilize the full width of the 6” sanding belt. This way the entire 6” belt gets used instead of always machining in the same position reducing sanding belt life. A miter gauge is also supplied for angled end sanding.
To rotate the sanding belt to a specific angle or to lay it flat a simple locking lever is loosened and then retightened once the sanding belt is in the desired position. When operating in the flat position an auxiliary fence is provided which mounts to the work table allowing better control of the work piece. The XS machine has a larger and stronger 12” x 12” cast iron sanding table which mounts to a bracket on the motor to allow users to use the 4” diameter sanding pulley to sand curves.
The frame of the XS machine also has a very strong solid steel welded stand but also includes a large storage compartment to store extra sanding belts. Also unique to the XS model is a very nice storage drawer just under the work table to store tools, accessories and manuals. For adequate dust collection the XS edge sander requires 400 CFM utilizing the 4” hose connection port on the steel hood of the machine. The hood is hinged for easy access to the sanding belt for replacement of abrasives.
The SandX XS Oscillating edge sander is an excellent all-purpose machine with extra features and performance to be the ultimate tilting edge sander.
