I am looking to purchase a drum sander and from older reviews the Jet 16/32 seems
to be a good choice since I want to run thin strips (under 1/8”). Since most opf the
sanders have been out there for a few years I tried to see if there are any new machines
about to come out. If I am going to drop a grand on one of these I would hate to have
the greatest model ever arrive the month after I buy one.

Has anyone heard of any new machines coming out in the next year ?

Any suggestions on a machine ? I have seen many reviews from people who have
just received there sander but few followups. I am wondering about the difficulty in
keeping the drum parralell over time, the idea of moving the table vs. the drum, etc..

No replies in four and a half years! Bob, which machine did you get? Or have you already replaced it with another by this time LOL!
