Peterson Portable Sawmills introduce sawmill sander disc to its accessory range

Sawmill Sander Disc Launch – October 26 2016

New Zealand manufacturers Peterson Portable Sawmills today introduced the Peterson Sander, their ultimate smooth finisher, to the Peterson accessory range.

Chris Browne, Peterson in-house designer and Sawmill Specialist, says “The Peterson Sawmill Sander is designed to provide your milled product with a perfectly smooth surface. The first step for a splinter-free finish is to use the Peterson Planer. Then swap the Planer Head with the sawmill Sander to achieve the ultimate smooth finish.”

For the launch, until 31 January 2017, Peterson is offering existing Peterson mill owners a complimentary Sander Kit with every new Planer purchase. For current owners of the Planer accessory, the Sander is available at 20% discount also until 31 January 2017.

The Peterson Sander has been trialled by key Peterson customers to ensure that today’s launch product meets commercial quality requirements.

Troy Swift from Swift River Pecans LLC was one of the early Sander testers : “The Sander is an essential item for anyone milling wood for big slab tables and bar tops. A professional furniture-maker may want to add their own hand-touched-finish for the table-top, but both the customer and I prefer that the initial ‘hard work’ is done with The Peterson Sander on my swingblade mill.”

The Peterson Sander comes in a kit which includes an instruction manual, and a range of sandpaper grits. The Sander Head has been designed to fit standard sandpaper discs available at any hardware store.

Peterson Portable Sawmills are the original designer of the commercial swingblade sawmill for portable applications and have been refining their design for 30 years. Their products include full milling packages for a range of uses from part-time milling to commercial production.
