    I’m probably going to make some myself. I got a good deal on some flooring that wasn’t selling. I think I’ll use that.

    Does anyone have any experience using a Supermax Tools Combo Brush / Drum sander, or any kind of brush sander? Looking for options to quickly sand profiled panels such as raised panel doors, carvings, ect.

    I havnt used one for carvings, or the like, but my local tool store let me ryn some material through one of theres. It was pretty nice. Ask a place close to you if you can use their floor model to try it out. The place I go let’s me use whatever they have, whether I’m buying or not.

    I thought I should mention I purchased a Supermax 13/32 drum sander last month. I wish I had gotten one sooner. So far I’ve used it on some slabs and it works great. Not quick though.

    Any issues with a ‘ridge’ on the open end of the sander after a pass through? That has always been a concern of mine that you would either need to keep passing it through to remove a ridge – or hand sand it out after the machine passes.

    I have thought about that as well. Is that an issue with the open end?

    How wide of a slab can you run through it??

    I would have liked something like that years ago if I had the room for it. Who knows, I may end up with one in my shed quasi 2nd shop along with a CNC like yours. Still not ready for either yet, maybe in a couple more years once other dominos fall in place allowing such.

    Is this the model you got Mark?

    The ’13’ in the model I believe denotes its width capacity hence 13 inches.

    I like the fast up and down on the 16/32 better than my 19/38. But the extra width is worth the time it takes to crank the head up and down. Actually wish I had gotten the 25/50. Doing one pass on all cabinet doors would have been worth the extra money to me now.

    Hind sight is always 20 20,, So wider material you can make 2 passes to get it all sanded?

    Yes, My 19/38 will do up to a 19″ wide board in one pass or a 38″ with two by flipping the board around.

    That really gets me when I buy a tool then after using it realize I should have spent more money and gotten the better one.
