Topic tags/keywords: question sander

In my area there is an upcoming auction that has included in it a Woodmaster 2675 drum sander.
5HP unit requiring the 220V hook-up which I have.

I have looked at the woodmaster website, and it is a 600 pound beast – even though it is just 24” capacity, cost wise New it is on sale for 2800 bucks.

Model 2675 26” Drum Sander with 5HP, 220V, 23 amp., TEFC Motor – List Price – $3,675
Sale Price thru 4/15/12—$2,795

Question is – what is it worth? Is it really so much better than Performax or Grizzly? Condition and market, along with often crazy auction bidding fever will ultimately set the price, but what do you folks think it is worth.

Included a picture from the sale bill.

It will likely sell for less than 1k at auction. Woodmaster
makes good stuff.

It looks like all you want is a sander but many of the woodmasters are a planners with sanding attachments.

Thanks guys -
Jim – I saw on the woodmaster site the combo planer, moulder, ripsaw combi machines, the site has this as just the sander, and I have coveted getting one, but I was originally thinking a performax 18-36 would have the added capacity to do wider pieces (although a bit of a pain).

I see great things on their site about being US made and great warrantee – but always a little wary about some used tools in general, and how mistreated it could be. Just wanting to make sure I don’t go too high – - and that is is worth a coveted piece of real-estate in my shop.

Cantilevered sanders may have 2-sided capacity but
the arm will deflect in all but the lightest of cuts. A
closed-end sander can do much heavier work, especially
with a big motor. Drum sanding is tedious enough
without having to take 3 passes for each 1/4 turn of
the height crank to compensate for the arm deflecting.

I have a small Woodmaster 12” sander and it is very well
made. It uses feed rollers instead of a conveyer belt
which isn’t so great, but the beast has a 5 hp motor
on it.

Thanks Loren – hopefully it won’t be a budget buster at auction…one of those price items they wait until the end to sell and everyone bids it up.

I’m still happy with my 10 old Ryobi 16-32 … but I’ve always had to work around its inadequacies … lack of real power etc …
The Woodmaster with 5hp is extremely powerful and built like a tank. I’d love to have it my self.

I have the 38” Woodmaster, and I love it. I can’t believe I didn’t buy it before I did. I suffered along with a Delta 18-36” for several years, and it was like hiring a new hand when I got the Woodmaster. It’s heavy, made to last. Does a great job. Plenty of power. Made in the USA.

Well….I went higher than I planned – My BUDGET on this was 1200 with a little wiggle room –
I opted against the 1425 bid, so the other guy took it home (in the central kansas tornadoes and rainstorms) Saturday the 14th for 1400.

No tool gloat for me :-(

Funny talking to the guy afterwards, his “budget” was also 1200
