I am considering a benchtop drum sander for finish-sanding some wood panels.
I have a tremendous quantity of pre-sanded solid radiata pine wood panels. Off the shelf, they are supposed to be “stain ready” and sanded up to 150 grit.
However, off the shelf, they are NOT sanded perfectly. They often have some rough areas. They also typically have some damage from handling/shipping.
My back is bad, and years of many hours a week using an orbital sander has taken its toll. I would rather push it through a machine and call it a day.
My question is this:
Is a bench top drum sander (such as JET Drum Sander 16-32) capable of final finishing, so that I can avoid using an orbital sander altogether?
Many thanks for any comments.
