  • Making thin wood or veneers

    I resaw my own woods for making large fretwork clocks. Has anyone any suggestions for a wide belt drum sander? King is one brand of sander I have seen, Performax 16-32 drum sander is more expensive, is it worth it? any other suggestions? north wood clocks

    I love my performax 16/32. Its not a necessity, but it sure makes life easier. Worth every penny in my book. Dale

      My 16?32 sander is one of those cloned Taiwanese ones which works just fine. As for comparisons with Performax I don't Know but I would not be without my one.

        Sander Plans

        I haven't used a commercial thickness sander before but I have come across some plans.

        From other discussions I have had with people it seems a sander with the drum on the top and an adjustable table is better than the table with a drum protruding through the top.
        The latter is ok for surface sanding but does not allow uniform thickness.

          The 2 that I've been debating between are the Performax and the Delta. From all my reading and research, I'm going with the Performax.
          FWIW, I use a sled on my planer now for planing down to very thin thicknesses, I've planed as thin as 3/32" without issue.

            Thank you

            Thank you , thank each of you (Dale, Rhys H, Carl, and Keven) for taking the time to answer my query about making thin woods or veneers. I was looking to make 3/32 wood for a project. I really appreciated the web page suggestions from "Canadian Scroller". Very interesting. Thanks again for the help.
            I eventually took some very strait grain wood and got it very close with
            out buying a new machine this time.
