    My gloat pics

    I picked up my Woodmaster 38 inch sander Friday but had to unload and head out for a weekend in the Smoky Mountains with my family. I'm just now getting a few pictures. As you can see it's filthy but in great shape. Velcro on the drum is tight and it runs smooth. The belt looks worn in the pic but it's just sawdust from me trying it out. Belt looks almost new. He also gave me a 150 foot roll of 80 grit. I still need to get it in place and get the DC hooked up. A little clean up and it will be up and running.

    As usual I found another machine calling my name! He also had a 20 inch planner that was too good to pass up. I had a little extra room on the trailer so I thought "What the hay?" The tables need a good scrub but a little PB Blaster and Scotch Brite they should look good. My bandsaw was way rougher and cleaned up great so this one should be gravy. I'm stepping up from a 13 inch lunchbox so this one is a beast to me. The sander weighs in at about 750 and the planner turned out to be well over that at 950. I didn't know that when we loaded my little trailer with a ton of machines. The forklift didn't even break a sweat! It was all me and my adult son could do to get them into the shop after getting them home. I plan on mobile bases as soon as I get some time. I bought them both for WAY less than the Woodmaster sells for used. I paid about 20% new price for each! It may or may not be gloatworthy but I'm a happy guy. I will try to add some "after" pics when I get them cleaned up.planner.jpg

    Congradulations on your dual gloat. Is the Woodmaster a Dual Drum? I would like to hear your feedback on the Woodmaster, I'm considering an upgrade from my Woodtek 26" to a 38" Drum Sander.

    Yep! That's a gloat for sure.

    On the other hand, I still have five fingers.

    Ed, it is a single drum. I've only played with it a little so far but it is a beast. 5 HP Leason drum motor that hasn't slowed a bit. The belt has variable speed from a crawl to fairly quick. Sorry but I'm not sure on the feet per min. I sent some white oak thru and a little pine so far. Both came out good.
    I do a lot of face frames and sometimes the mortise is off a few thousandths. This machine will even it up in a couple of passes on the worst case.
    It can't replace RO sanding but cuts the time down at least 2/3s for me. So far I'm impressed. It will see some hard use in my shop so time will tell.

    Shane, Thanks for the feedback, looking forward to hear more as you get more use from the Drum Sander. Does the end of the Drums have clips to hold the paper or is it held completely with Velcro? I'm curious how easy the paper changes are and how the paper and Velcro hold up.

    Regards! Ed
