Although a fully clad welder can appear somewhat overdressed, each piece of protective clothing is necessary to ensure personal safety. Welders who shun safety equipment often have scars or health problems as reminders of shortcuts they took.
The PIPE-MAX is a combination grinder and pipe belt sander. The front hard rubber contact roller drives the abrasive belt to grind flat surfaces. It removes weld seams in a straight line, without leaving edges or a wavy finish. For sanding pipes or handrails, the sanding belt follows every contour to grind and polish up to a high-gloss finish. Ideal for stainless steel, aluminum and high-quality metals.
