Well folks the 20” drum sander combo project is completed. It reduces stock pretty fast and flatens doors and boards well. You can even square-up edges to get better board glue-ups. If you want more information please go to my Blog. Parts 1 and 2 are posted and Part 3 should be up by Sunday. There’s a couple of short videos and lots of pics. Thanks for looking.
Correction: the videos will be in Part 3 of my blog.

Very cool. I love how you switch the dust collector for the table top. I couldn’t figure out a good way to do that so I put my dust collection on the side. Well done! I like how you took the time to paint it and make it look nice. I think that makes homemade tools so much cooler..
