LARICK MACHINERY USER FRIENDLY MACHINERY
The key to successful profile sanding is a combination of machine versatility, use of the correct abrasive medium, and a little patience and understanding. The results are a remarkable increase in consistency, quality, and productivity. LARICK's line of profile sanders offers a variety of models to fit the diverse needs of our customers. In addition, we will help you understand the requirements, capabilities, and limitations of successful profile sanding systems. You provide the patience! The purchase of a Larick Profile Sander can result in substantial savings in labor; increased productivity, consistency, and quality; and the beginning of a mutually rewarding relationship between us.
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 itâs display showing spindle RPM. The only difference between models is input voltage.

Before establishing Larick Machinery, Inc. in 1988, I was an engineer for a medium sized cabinet company. We had recently discovered a stretchable abrasive for profile sanding wheels which, to our surprise, WORKED!! We knew there were thousands of others who could also benefit from this profile sanding system, so we designed a profile sander with every feature WE wanted if WE were setting it up and using it every day. The result is the MODEL 360. It has a tilting spindle with a scale, variable speed, vertical AND horizontal adjustment--unique to Larick in this price range--which is one of its most beneficial features. It allows use of a simple, fixed fence for the initial setup, and provides the operator with a means of adjusting sanding pressure or compensating for wheel wear by simply turning a handwheel.
Larick's value priced MODEL 120 profile sander features variable speed and vertical adjustment. It is ideal for sanding arched or straight raised panels and for applications not requiring a tilting spindle. A fence is optional.
Larick also manufactures custom profiled sanding wheels to use on either our sanders or others. We use a patented, stretchable, velcro backed abrasive which conforms to a profile as it is stretched around a formed wheel. Available grits are 100, 120, 150, and 180. Our sanding wheels combine aggressive sanding with low cost to give exceptional value!
Great news for you is that labor savings alone can pay for a machine and, as a bonus, quality and consistency will improve significantly. A demonstration video showing features, setup, operation, and results is available. I feel we have developed the most versatile, user friendly profile sanders on the market at very competitive prices. Thank you for your time and interest in our products. We look forward to serving you in the near future.
