In order to optimize profile sanding, most profiles should have the wheel tilted to minimize the depth the profile goes into the wheel, and to keep the abrasive as flat as possible on the wheel. Larick's family of 360s can tilt either forward or backward to achieve this. It also has a simple, stationary, rigid, but removable fence, and features both vertical and horizontal spindle adjustment from the front of the machine. Horizontal spindle adjustment allows the operator to quickly make fine adjustments of sanding pressure without moving the fence. Tilt changes are easily made utilizing a crank and easy to read scale. They use an AC inverter for variable speed on the direct drive motor. The inverter provides precise speed control with it’s display showing spindle RPM. The only difference between models is input voltage.
