Moke, I’ve owned a Supermax 25” single-drum, closed-end sander for near 20 years, and I absolutely love it. Yes, it takes some time to arrive at your finished thickness, but it sure beats power hand sanding. Of course, I usually mill my thickness about 1/16 ” shy of the target with my planer, and then roll out the sander, but then life is good. And who wouldn’t like to have a wide-belt sander for their home shop, but I don’t know of many who can afford to do that. Several years ago I had a drum bearing go out (my fault since I let several set screws get loose) but the support from Supermax was fantastic.

Having said all that, I can’t speak to the pros and cons of the open-end drum units because I’ve never used one. But based on my experiences with my unit, you probably can’t fine a better company to deal with.
