Machine of the Month:<br>The Stealth edge profiling machine

April 11, 2004


The Stealth edge profiling machine from Stone Tool Supply, Inc. is an American-made piece of equipment with parts and service direct from the U.S. With the Stealth router, fabricators can profile an edge and bring it to a fine polish.

The Stealth requires single-phase, 220-volt power, and it has a phase converter, which converts the power from single-phase to three-phase. The Stealth has a 3-horsepower continuous duty motor, and with a variable speed range from 3,000 to 10,000 RPMs, the fabricator has the ability to turn up the speed for profiling and slow it down to polish. The machine runs on nylon balls and a thin layer of water as part of the hydroplaning system. The hydroplaning system is integrated with the machine and is not sold as a separate, add-on part. The Stealth comes with a one-year warranty, and it can run Tyrolit-Vincent, Consolidated Diamond and many other brand name router bits. Also available now is the little brother to the Stealth - the Red Lightning Router. The Red Lightning also runs off of 220-volt, single-phase power and is a single-speed router machine.
