Belt sanders are great tools to have in the workshop, speeding up grinding and finishing jobs while allowing you to use both hands so flat surfaces are easy to achieve. The problem with belt sanders for jewelers has always been that the common industrial belt sander is just too darn big for the average jeweler. Ikohe has solved this problem by designing a jewelers sized belt sander that is just right for the jewelers bench.
Includes 2 of each of the following belts:
111.816 Ruby 80 Grit Belt
111.817 Ruby 120 Grit Belt
111.818 Ruby 180 Grit Belt
111.819 Ruby 240 Grit Belt
111.820 Ruby 320 Grit Belt
Formerly branded as the Wolf belt sander, the Ikohe Belt Sander remains unchanged since it was first introduced. It is a compact design that uses 1” wide sanding belts and easily connects to your flexshaft for power.
The Ikohe belt sander requires a flex shaft machine to use. It connects to the end of your USA style key tip flex shaft inner cable and does not require the use of a flex shaft handpiece.A flex shaft is not included with the Ikohe belt sander.
The Ikohe belt sander does not work with the slip joint European style flex shaft. It can be used mounted directly to your bench with the included clamp, or fitted to your GRS BenchMate with an optional adapter. The Ikohe Belt Sander also includes an attachment for hooking up to a dust collector, to help remove dust particles. This is a great little tool that has been perfectly designed for the bench jeweler, helping to speed up polishing and grinding applications for your creations and your tools. Just a quick zip zip on the belt sander, and you’ve just saved yourself lots of time compared to hand finishing.
Putting these advanced abrasives on your bench is just one for reason for making the Ikohe Belt Sander indispensable for the jeweler. Options include the adaptor mount to fit your new Ikohe Belt Sander to a GRS BenchMate tm, and a selection of 3M belts. Belts are 10-1/2" (267mm) by 1" (25.4mm). Clamp opening 1-3/4"
Ratings & Reviews
Speeds the workflow up nicely.
This has been a very useful addition to the studio. The positioning system takes a little getting used to in order to get the best from it, but otherwise you can usually find the position.
<br>I use mine with a coarse belt to whip down the back of a Delft Clay casting and finer belts as a "pre-lap" finish on Signet ring tables. It's sped up my productivity. The plastic port for extraction looks and feels a bit flimsy, but I haven't broken it yet (spares are available). The only downside is it's not quite as good at collecting dust if you use the underside for curved surfaces, even with the pendant motor in reverse. No great hardship though.
I have had this Ikohe Belt Sander for about six weeks or so. It has proved itself to be very useful. It is easy to set up and changing the belts is simple. It makes short work of sanding. The money spent is well worth the time saved.
