Good Sunday afternoon LJ members,

I have a Jet 22-44 plus drum sander…and have not used it for some time. The drum and bed are not parallel.

Does anyone have a similar issue…or how I can remedy it ? I’m sanding a table top 22” X 41” hard maple.

I just installed a new 180 grit roll of paper.

I really appreciate all your help.

you can get a level guage and take an accurate reading of the bed, then set the drum to that same setting via the side adjustment screws….mine’s an older 16/32 tho so can be slightly different

If you have your instruction booklet, the instructions are there. It’s not difficult, just tedious!
If you don’t have the instruction booklet, I vaguely remember a youtube video on how to do it.
