    OH OH! Is there any possibility of washing the sand paper with paint remover?

      Supposedly, sanding at an angle decreases the loading on the paper, but I can’t quite figure out how. Sanding glue-ups is another paper eater, but if you use a scraper to remove excess fried glue from the wood before you sand, it helps a lot.

      Also, if your stock is narrow, do all the sanding in one area so the rest of the drum remains usable. And the edge of a piece of plexiglass can often chip off dried glue, I don’t know about paint.

      I use the eraser first to remove whatever will come off, then go after the spots. I also gang up all the messy projects and sand them at the same time, then treat the wrap as a consumable. If you cut your own, it’s not too expensive, and your time and mental health are worth something.

        Carole found this. It is too late for the strips I just tossed because I cut the good sections out for use on my lathe sanding.

          Got a call from Woodcraft this afternoon telling me that the sander is in the Harrisburg store. Can't make it up there today, but Connie & I get a day trip tomorrow for it. She gets to go to the casino, at the racetrack up there, for awhile, so it's will be a good day for the both of us. Specially if she wins enough to pay for the sander.

            Tony did you ever get your sander?

              Yes, but it is still sitting in a box in the garage.

              My shop, like yours is somewhat tight. If something new comes in - something old has to go somewhere else. In this case it is the old planer. The planer isn't going away, it is just getting moved to a corner in the garage. That way it is available when I need it - and it does get used.

              But, the cabinet, that holds the planer, has two drawers that hold all my myriad drill bits. So, first I have to make a wall shelf/cabinet to hold my bits - did that. Today, I'm moving the planer out of it's corner and hanging the shelf. Once I get the bits moved, I can move the planer out of the shop and move the Drill Press into the corner where the planer sat.

              Then I can find a muscular neighbor to help me bring the sander down to the shop. It's a process

              I lost the last three days as my son & his wife stopped in, on their way back home to Richmond. She has decided she wants to learn wood turning, and wants to start with pens. So, we spent most of Friday and all of Saturday down in the shop while I showed her how to do that. They left yesterday, with her on her tablet, reading the links I gave her and looking at the vendors I use for supplies & tools. You know the look we get when our wives go shopping for furniture? Yeah - my son gets that look when his wife is looking at tools.

              Anyway - it was a fun weekend, and now, I can get back to arranging the space to bring the sander down. I hope to have it set up this week.

                Glad you mentioned the muscular neighbor. That sander is heavy! But you’ll love it 😍.

                  My Super Max 16-32 is on back order from the Norwalk, CT store, may be a few weeks before it comes in...that's OK, I'm not in a hurry. I tried to find a stock number for the sanding belts on the Klingspor web site and because my mind is losing grey matter, all I found was confusion. If anyone uses Klingspor belts and can lead me in the right direction, I would be thankful.

                    Rick they don't use belts. You can buy the 3" wide paper pre cut but I buy it by the roll and cut my own. The only belt that it has is the feed belt and that shuld last for years.
                    I have attached a link to the manual for that sander and it has some interesting information on recommended grits and paper length etc. The PDf file was too big to attach.

                    Tony I used a come along and some creative rigging to set my 19-38 up, not the safest way to go. Get some help much easier.

                        An 18 meter roll, 3” wide, will give 6 wraps for a 19” drum and 7 for the 16”. Much cheaper than getting the precuts, and you can precut your own to have some in reserve.

                        I like the 60 grit for planing. Coarser than that and you have to use the 60 to get out the deep scratch marks. I usually use anywhere from 100 to 150 for dimensioning and general stock prep, but what you get depends on how you plan to use the sander.

                          Carole when you say edge of plexiglass takes off glue you talking about on the sander or wood?

                            Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

                            I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

                            I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
