OPTIONAL CONTACT WHEEL AND BELT ATTACHMENT
This accessory, as shown in the picture at the right offers advantages over the typical method of mounting the idlers on the floor.
Because the contact wheel, backstand idlers and guards are all mounted to a support frame that is secured to the base of the machine, it is possible to move or relocate the lathe without remounting or realigning the idlers. The Contact Wheel and Belt Attachment can only be supplied if ordered at the same time as the polishing lathe.
Available with Spring Tensioned idlers or Air Tensioned idlers. The Air Tensioned idlers are recommended for belt speeds of 7500 SFPM and faster due to larger diameter pulleys.
