  • Super Max 19-38 real test.

    I have had my Super Max drum sander since January 2014 and it has been a real work horse and major time saver in my shop. I have never tested its full width until yesterday. I am making a new dining room table inset, quarter sawn white oak. I jointed and edge glued the boards with biscuits. I then put 150 grit paper on the sander and did multiple passes ~.005 - .010" per pass until the top was cleaned up. I could have gone with more aggressive paper but I needed to sneak up on a specific thickness (to match my table) and did not want to introduce and sanding grooves.
    It would have been nice to have the in and out feed tables but I used a roller stand on the out side. The end result was impressive. I did a final sanding with the Festool RO to 320. The tough part will be matching the stain color.

    I also got to use my Track saw for the edges and ends. So a really fun day

    Thanks again Carole for pointing me in the right direction on this sander Real test (600 x 337).jpg .

    If you are ever in my part of the country, I'll give you the infeed out feed tables. They were bigger than I expected and I don't have room in my shop for that.

        I'm getting antsy to get mine up and running. Got the planer moved and doing some cleanup. I'd like to get it in place this week.

          Is your dust collection located in your basement too? I do my scrolling and some sanding in the basement and would like to do a better job with the dust control but don't want to create a lot of noise for the family room right above me.

            Some tools are just really good!

            I believe they now make the folding in and out feed tables for the 19-38. I was tempted, since the stationary tables are pretty big, but they now serve as holders for the SawStop fence when I need to remove it. My total workbench space is a 2x4 handipanel on a kitchen base cabinet, so I need all the horizontal surfaces I can find.

            Glad it worked for you, Rolf. We’ve used it for wider stock, and that indexing lever really works, just like they said it would.

            If if you have the casters for the stand, be sure to tighten all the relevant bolts regularly, especially if you move the sander. We didn’t, and one of the legs deformed at the bottom and one of the casters on another leg bent. They sent replacements, but we don’t have anyone who can help us remove the sander from the stand so we can swap out the leg. So we just don’t move it unless absolutely necessary.

              I really don't currently have the room for the in and out feed tables. Thanks for the offer Randy.
              Carole regarding lifting the sander. If you have open beams above it , a come along and a couple of beefy C clamps. You can do what I did to assemble mine. Clamp the Clamps to the beam above hook the Come along to them and put some beefy straps around the sander and raise it up to take the weight off of the leg DSC_7725 (402 x 600).jpg s.

                Martzy, as you can see I have a Jet Vortex dust collector in the back corner. it filters to 2 microns. I am in the same situation as you, my shop is in the basement. Most of it is in another room under our great room, so I put the collector in a different part of the basement and ran ductwork with a gate at each machine. I use a remote to turn it on/off.
                A dust collector is an absolute must for a drum sander.!!!

                  Rolf, the drum sander is in the garage, with a sheetrock ceiling. I wish there were some easy way to take the weight off the leg, but Joe has back issues and I'm not too helpful in the strength department. Guess it's time to have another family get-to-gether!

                    I have an older one of these. I has set up all kinds of equipment with it. I'm not a big guy so this is my helper.

                      Now, if only there were room for the car . . . . But it does look like a good thing to have.

                          Thanks, Betty. I think I can prevail on my two strong sons. And my DIL is a serious weight lifter. They all are willing to work for food.

                              Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

                                Lee, we have a pen turner displayed at ArtCrafters. Many of the pens are $25 and we sell maybe 4 - 5 each month. I am sure at a place like Knoxville he could more than double the price....

                                We could not do that in our kitchen the ceiling and walls are way too crooked. So to fool the eye some of our cabinets go all of the way up with trim molding the others are lower also with crown molding. There is no continuous line to catch the eye.

                                WHAT? We’re taking them down? Bruce decided he should have put them flush with the ceiling so we’re taking them down and raising them 1/2”!!! Do you know how heavy these are? He decided he wanted as narrow as possible, or no, molding at the top at all. And yes, Scott they have stuff in them.😲😲...
