I use mine for two things.

1. Making things smooth. For example I made a table top out of lacewood wrapped with ebony wrapped with bubinga. I used the drum sander to get everything nice and smooth.

2. Getting things sanded enough to fit perfect.

I always cringe and the idea of a ‘thickness snader’ to me that implys that you can get a consistant thinckness and just feed stock through, no true, a plainer will do that a drum sander will not have as much control over how thick things end up. I will usailly use my plainer for thickness then my drum sander for evenness.

spell check is broken…..
