May I suggest a bit more information. From reading your post you say you need 1’ width by 18” table sander.

You also referenced a finewoodworking blog entry where they mentioned a wide-belt sander, like the one used by Norm on the New Yankee workshop similar to this one http://www.grizzly.com/products/24-Wide-Belt-Sander-Platen-Model/G0582 . The blog entry also mentioned a drum sander , and example is found at http://www.grizzly.com/products/18-1-1-2-HP-Single-Phase-Open-End-Drum-Sander/G0458 .

What type of machine are you looking for?

Many LJs have build the drum sanders, some with powerfeed, others with a manual feed. I’ve build mine with a manual feed. My point here is many examples exist of this type on this site. You can build a width that is suitable to the work you do. For machines like this, you purchase rolls of sandpaper that adhere to the sanding drum

What are you looking to do? Is this one time only? What are you trying to sand (rough lumber, veneers, etc…)? Their may be other alternatives that could be suggested as this is a very knowledgeable forum.
