Pipe-Max - Trade Only Today



For surface-finishing pipe and handrails, CS Unitec says its new Pipe-Max combination weld-seam grinder and pipe sander erases seams and can bring satin to mirror finishes to stainless steel, aluminum and high-quality metals.


Weighing 11.25 pounds with a 14.5-amp variable-speed electric motor (950 to 3,500 rpm), the tool deburrs, grinds and polishes closed- and open-pipe constructions from 3/8 inch to 12 inches in diameter. The continuous sanding-belt speed adjustment (from 33 to 100 feet per second) accommodates the pipe material; a continuous belt-tightening adjustment adapts to the pipe diameter. Flat surfaces can be ground to remove spot welds and deep scratches, leaving no edges. An adjustable handle allows for right- or left-handed use, as well as side and overhead work. CS Unitec sells abrasive belts and polishing fleece for the Pipe-Max. Sanding belts can be changed without tools. The Pipe-Max is $973. Contact: CS Unitec, (800) 700-5919. www.csunitec.com
