Hi All,

I’m new to Lumberjocks and have seen some of the older discussions about drum sanders. Great Discussion for two+ years ago.

Now I’m looking at the General 24” 3 hp and the Woodmaster 3875 (5 hp/5hp) as possibilities. I’d love a wide belt but shop size and dollar constratints…you get the picture…

Any advice from you pros about either machine for table tops and doors? Or any other machine, for that matter (not Delta or Performax, thanks)?
