30" Flatmaster Sander In Reverse and Using a 3400 RPM Motor

04-02-2018 02:47 AM by Kelly | 3 comments »

I was experimenting with a cold when my Flatmaster arrived, so I was slow getting to the game. The unit arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. When I removed the top, I noted a place which had been miss-drilled, but it doesn’t hurt anything or affect the cosmetics. If anything, it serves as a reminder I helped another little guy. I did get the motor mounted and wired with a temporary switch (a household switch) and was able to get the unit going and test drive it a lit...

Supermax 1938 Review - 4.5 out of 5 stars in my book.

Supermax 1938 Review - 4.5 out of 5 stars in my book.

03-29-2018 05:01 PM by BobLove | 6 comments »

I recently bought the Supermax 19/38 drum sander. This is my first drum sander and I have to say that I’m really surprised by how much I like it. The main purpose was for sanding thinner panels for scroll saw work. My wife likes to scroll saw and when she saw a demo on one she wanted one so it was a win win decision. My original concern was it only being 120volt sander. I don’t really have a shop and the one circuit in the garage is already taxed especially if I use my du...

Jet 16/32 review

Jet 16/32 review

03-13-2018 11:00 PM by eflanders | 5 comments »

It’s a rarity that I buy any machinery brand new but alas I have done so in buying a Jet 16/32 sander as a birthday present from my 84 year old mother. I’ve been very guilty at looking at reviews, but never writing them so here goes: I bought the unit from an online dealer (who I think errored in their ad) but allowed me free freight, plus a 10% off coupon on their sale price. So the bottom line price was awesome! The unit was in-stock and thus it was shipped the next day. ...

I bought the Supermax 19-38 drum sander with optional casters and folding infeed/outfeed tables during Black Friday. It was delivered on a pallet in multiple boxes and looked to be well packaged. When I opened everything up, there was no damage at all. That is always a plus! I set the machine up as per the instructions and found the process to be painless but slow. Also, it is heavy and I’m not in the shape I use to be so it was a bear to lift it onto the stand. I used the sander for...

Sanding paddle

Sanding paddle

02-04-2018 03:08 PM by hairy | 2 comments »

Like most of you, I really enjoy and look forward to sanding my project. To me it’s what woodworking is all about. Spending some quality time doing a simple task is so rewarding. Yeah, right! I bought this a few years back, 3 or 4 at least. I use it on every project. Initially purchased for use on my lathe, I use it more at the workbench. It is a velcro hook and loop system. I can have 4 different grits on the paddle at once. It’s great for little touch ups when getting a piece...

Not at all what I was expecting for the money

Not at all what I was expecting for the money

Hey guys, this is not the review I wanted write over a year ago when purchased this machine. I had high hopes that it would be as good as advertised. I was wrong. Ive been working as a cabinet maker full time for 8 years now and wanted a machine to help with all the sanding. I saw this video https://youtu.be/vG_8ASCUWnQAfter watching that and and hearing of Supermax Tools as a company thats been around a while I took the leap and spent $2,400 or so on it and some paper. It was pretty easy ...

Supermax new 16-32 sander

Supermax new 16-32 sander

This is an awesome drum sander. The only assembly required was to assemble the stand to put it on. The extension tables are an extra but fold down when not in use. The extensions were easy to attach an adjust to level. I have used it for about three weeks and put it through sanding end grain cutting boards to making .054 bands for boxes. The innovation of adjusting the drum quickly up and down with a lever is fantastic. No more cranking the handle a turn at a time to adjust the height.

Central pneumatic air sander

Central pneumatic air sander

11-22-2017 02:49 AM by Jacksdad | 2 comments »

I bought this sander at Harbor Freight for about $30, it works great for sanding bowls. It comes with sandpaper that you should just throw in the garbage, I use the New Wave brand of paper from Woodcraft, it a wave shaped paper so it doesn’t cut grooves in the bowls when it’s working the inside of the bowl. I have a 12 gallon air compressor and it can keep up if i only sand about 3 to 5 minutes. The only problem is the exhaust blows cold air on your hand.

 My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

My Review! DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud

11-18-2017 06:21 PM by richardchaos | 5 comments »

last week I got my DEWALT DWE6401DS 5-Inch VS Disc Sander with Dust Shroud I ordered via Amazon as it was $25 cheaper that Lowes. It came as you see even with a wrench (Not pictured) to change out padded head. Keep in mind I have been using an very old DeWalt drill with a Plastic Sanding disk attachment for the last few years. I would regularly set up my desalt drill with sanding disc crush it in my vise and use it as a poor mans Stationary Disk Sander… If any of you have se...

 DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

DELTA 31-484 OSCILLATING - TILTING SPINDLE SANDER -UNBOXING AND REVIEW

11-05-2017 06:38 PM by Ryan Nicholson | 11 comments »

I purchased a Delta 31-484 1HP Oscillating -Tilting Spindle Sander from a Delta dealer on EBay. I chose this model because the spindle tilts on a trunion instead of the table having to tilt. Also the gear box runs in an oil bath which is super quiet and should last many years. Delivery went smooth and the machine was undamaged so I signed for it and welcomed the 400 pound monster into my shop. Over all, the fit and finish of the machine is good. The cast iron table top was dead flat except ...
