Item #: 40000
Box Qty: 1

​The Control Tower for your #2, #4, #6, or #25 Grinder

Take Control of your Grinders Feed, Arbor SFPM (never burn a gullet again!) and use the tooth counter to automatically turn off when finished.  The Arbor Brake stops the grinding wheel in seconds!

The New Control Tower is engineered with built-in Safety and efficiency features including:
  • Emergency Stop Button strategically placed for ease of use
  • A Tooth Counter to automatically shut down after a user specified number is entered
  • A reset function to put the tooth counter back to its preset after making adjustments
  • Resistive Braking to stop the grinding wheel rotation within seconds
  • OSHA compliant Lock Out / Tag Out functionality on the Control Tower itself
  • Separate On / Off switches for both the bandsaw feed and grinding wheel arbor
  • A cross reference chart indicating Surface Feet per Minute based on the grinding wheel diameter
  • Amp Meter providing real time feedback to how hard the Grinding Wheel is working
  • There is also a Tight Loop Identifier Option. The Tight Loop Identifier automatically shuts down the grinder if the bandsaw gets out of balance. (Example: the back feed stops feeding)​

The Control Tower allows you to walk away with confidence knowing the auto shut off technology will automatically stop the grinder. Never shut down to leave for a saw change or break again!
