New Sander - Huge Help

The sander I am reviewing is the new oscillating version, 22-44 Plus ODS. I was able to save a few hundred ordering and shipping through a freight forwarder myself, instead of using a local retailer. I try to help local businesses when I can, but when they don’t want to work with me, it’s difficult. It always irks me when a retailer tells me they don’t have the item in stock, (either out or don’t stock them in general), but that “they can order it for me.̶...

I have just acquired this beast of a drum sander from Jet, minus the stand. The installation and initial setting up was very easy, even single handed, but be warned the main part of the unit is very heavy 85kg (187lbs), then add the extension tables and you are talking about 100kg (220lbs). (A similar unit to the Performax 22- 44 Plus Drum Sander, see the review posted by GaryK Please note that this is a European version, the drum sander specs may be different in your country. The i...
