As I am sure many of you are aware, Jet is having it’s 3000 hour sale, and this weekend most of the deals that were advertised up until now are being rehashed for the public (http://www.3000hoursale.com/Products.aspx).
Okay, so I am thinking about a drum sander and there are several thoughts going through my mind, so I am hoping some of the lumberjocks can share opinions:
1. Does a hobbyist woodworker need a drum sander capable of 44 inches? Or can he/she get by with 32 in most cases?
2. What benefit does the oscilating function bring? Is it worth $400 dollars more?
Now, I’ve read enough people’s comments to know it would be great to have a drum sander in the shop, just not sure where to go from here. As always, thanks for the help in advance.
