I’m in the market for a drum sander mostly to make thin strips of wood for segmenting (1/8 – 1/16 thick). Almost bought the supermax this past weekend but they didn’t have on in stock at my local woodcraft so I held off. Now the Jet is on sale and it is also cheaper so I end up saving around $400.
From my understanding they are pretty much the same machine, the frames look very similar and I was told Supermax builds the Jets. I have seen both models and the Supermax is a tad larger and the bed is slightly oversized which I like.
Anyone actually used both machines? should I just go buy the Supermax? While the $400 in savings would be nice it’s not a huge factor in the purchase… I want the better machine.
