  • Supermax Sale

    My latest Woodcraft store mailer shows the Supermax 16/32 going on sale tomorrow. Knocks $200 of the usual store price down to $999. I guess I'm heading to Harrisburg tomorrow or Saturday.

    Haven’t gotten my mailer yet. For the whole month on sale?

      Definitely a no-brainer if you don’t already own the 19-38. It has a 3” thickness limit, but that should be more than sufficient for most purposes. Wish I had the folding tables, but I can’t see scrapping the ones I already have.

        Yep - January 26 - Feb 22, according to the mailer.

          For what I'm using it, 3 inches is more than enough. I really don't need the 16 inch width, but for the price it can't be beat. Also - love the built-in digital height readout - saves the cost of a Wixey.

            Tony, think 32” width. It has an indexing lever so you can sand the wider pieces without ridges. Works great!

              Please...why did you post this. What a dastardly deed! I feel a weakening in my resolve to not buy another tool. Now, I will need to plead my case to my CFO.

                I agree that was a mean thing to do. Lucky me I am immune to this sort of thing. What makes it easier is that already have the 19-38. The 16 would have been perfect for my space.

                  Quartz has a weakening in his resolve, I have a weakening in my finances..... But I think I would love to have one, maybe I could get rid of my noisy thickness planner.

                    MUHA HA HA HA HA HA - or however you do the evil laugh in text.

                    I called the Harrisburg store this morning to see if they had any in stock, before I made the 58 mile trip. They sold out already, but have 5 more on order. So I reserved one of those and they'll call me when it comes in.

                    I didn't order the extension wings. If I have room for them, I can add them later.

                    What are the best grits to get for sandpaper for this thing?

                      Grit depends on what you want to do with it. I think Rolf swaps off grits pretty frequently.

                      The process is pretty quick and easy, even with my small hands. I use 60 grit for rough wood, then anywhere between 100 and 150 for finishing off resawn wood or precise dimensioning. I cut several strips from the roll at one time, so I always have a precut on hand. The purchased precuts are a lot more costly. Klingspor is the place to go for the rolls.

                            Swapping out the paper is easy and fast once you have done it a few times. If I am removing lots of material I us 80 or down to 50 grit. I then will use 150 for the final sanding. For my thin fin wood that I use on my ornaments 1/16 (1.5mm) I pre-sand with 220. This saves me a huge amount of time. Another thing, if you have ever run some curly maple through a planer and had it rip chunks out, the drum sander is your savior.

                            But you absolutely need dust collection!!!

                              For anyone that gets a drum sander NEVER try to sand paint or a thicker varnish / urethane finish of of old wood. It will load the paper instantly.
                              Strip the finish first. or use an RO sander with a very course grit. I learned this very early in my Super max ownership. But I refreshed my learning experience yesterday and threw away a brand new 150 grit paper strip. . I thought it was a very thin finish on my old fireplace mantle, I was wrong.
