Looking to buy a Supermax 25-50 for some radiata pine panels. I recall reading a comment somewhere online (that I can no longer find) that a drum sander won’t work well on softwoods like pine. Not sure what kind of problems they were referring to, if anyone can enlighten me I would appreciate it.
The panels I use are knot-free radiata pine.
Supermax says the drum sander will work on softwoods, just that if sap is present it can cause the paper to gum up.
Thanks for any comments, looking to pull the trigger and buy this thing soon!
