I've seen David Marks and others use a drum sander as a thicknesser. I saw a reference recently in the discussion about the DIY drum sander. But I've always failed to see exactly how it would work -
- [I think] You dial in the elevation of the drum above the feed belt
- [I think] You place your stock on the treadmill belt and it's drawn under the drum
- But doesn't the drum need more time to remove 1/16 than 1/32? Is the speed of the treadmill coordinated with the amount of stock being removed?
