We have a local tool store that is a chain from ND, MN and Iowa. (Acme) They had their annual “feed the customer-bring in the rep” day today. There was a rep there from SuperMax, that actually turned out to be the company President, Bill Schroeder. I picked his brain for 3/4 of an hour. He gave me some great advice, walked me through the machine. I have to say his advice was commensorate to what I got here, with a few finer points towards the operation of the machine only. Thanks guys!!

He did mention that the December issue of “Wood” magazine is featuring an article on drum sanders, and they called him and asked to keep his machine, stating it was awesome….so he thinks he is on top, but he doesn’t really know.

GShepard, I bought some 150, and a variety pack that had a 38, 80, and 120…..I did not realize this is the preferred method to flatten cupped boards, so I bought this pack to be ready! I don’t believe there is a rubber belt available.
