  • Which inflatable drum sander to buy?

    I'm wanting to buy an inflatable drum sander for my intarsia projects. I'm torn between the guinever system and a larger one I found on

    I like the guinever system for the flexible shaft adaptor, but I like the larger drums on the other. Any thoughts?

    P.S. I tried the Seyco flex drum sander and I don't care for it, so I don't mind spending the money for something I will like.

    If you can't get on the website through the link on my post, go to Wholesale Tool | Industrial Machinery + Tool Supply and search inflatable drum sander.

      I would like to add my own query to the thread started by Nicholas. It is difficult enough to search for Pneumatic sanders without getting hits for air-driven handheld powertools...

      I am looking for a bench sander, the type that look like a grinding wheel setup (motor in middle, mounted to stand) with a sanding mop on one side and a pneumatic drum on the other.

      I've seen products from:
      Sand-Rite Model DB-612-DLX Pneumatic Drum/Brush Head Sander
      Gruzzly G8749 Drum / Flap Sander

      I've also seen some drum-only offerings that included info on how to modify them to be used in a lathe or drill.

      Intarsia seems to be more about sanding technique than cutting (especially when I look at things like the Pointsettia door topper in a recent magazine), yet there don't seem to be any YouTube demos on how to properly shape pieces using pneumatic or other sanders effectively.

      So, I too ask, what are the pros/cons of these or any other models? What is the difference in use of a mop vs a wheel of torn sandpaper? I see some with sheets parallel and others perpendicular to the shaft. Which one works better?
      Wouldn't a model like those above that also allowed the mounting of a Wonderwheel or even std disk be a better option vs buying more $300+ tools?

      Looking forward to the many replies from all you pneumatic sander users.

        I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

        These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
