- Chicago Pneumatic High Speed Air Sander with Jacobs Chuck
- Brand: Chicago Pneumatic | Category: Sanders
My last find from my recient trip to Harbor Freight was this Air Sander with Jacobs chuck. 18000 RPM 4 CFM @ 90 PSI. come with 3 backing plates 3” 4” and 5.5” and a 3/8 jacobs chuck. Tons of power, it was missing one of the wrenchs but Harbor Freight customer service sent one right out. One reviewer on HF’s site commented that the sholder on the nut that holds the backing plate and sand paper on is very shallow I have to agree and infact turned a new one on my metal lathe. It now works great and removes material like mad. Again no air fittings this is a real peeve with me, the could include it. But for 14.99 it is a good buy. Changing from sander to drill is a snap, unscrew the backing plate, screw on the chuck, install the screw “left hand thread” to lock the chuck in place and your done. You now have an 18000 RPM drill. I gave it 4 stars because of the backing plate issue. Otherwise a good tool.
