Topic tags/keywords: drum sander sander

I have a SuperMax 16/32 Drum Sander that I purchased a couple of months ago. I have used it here and there for small stuff and to mess around, but not for something really big.

Last week I made an American Flag Cutting board and when I went to carve out the pocket for the stars on the CNC I noticed that the stars closest to the fly (short side of the flag) were smaller than the others. After I measured, I noticed that the ends were slightly smaller than the center by a mm or two.

Does anyone know what causes this? Is it like planer snipe?

How can it be fixed?

Thank you.

Snipe, yeah. Infeed/outfeed tables may help.
Maybe you have them and they need adjustment.

I was thinking that might be a problem. I am getting them this weekend. Thank you.

I have this drum sander. You might check the sanding belt and make sure it is not overlapping on it self.

I use this sander all the time

Have your say...
