Powermatic Belt/Disc Sander

We have a Powermatic 31A Belt/Disc Sander at Artisan's Asylum. It has an articulating table mounted on the 6" x 48" belt sander head which can be used vertically, horizontally, or angled. The belt head has an indexing pin with stops at 0, 45° and 90° and the head lock allows use at any angle in-between. Removing the top guard allows contour sanding and the cast iron tables have miter gauge slots and positive stops.
