The past few days I spent a lot of time trying to familiarize myself with my new drum sander,which is a clone of Performax 16-32.
Specially if the piece of wood is only 8” or so long it lifts as it goes under the front roller/ sanding drum. it also sounds different than when it goes under the second(back)roller.
I did get snipes at first but not since I feed my stock with a sacrificial piece of wood (of the same thickness) in order to lock the rollers up,is this how you feed your stock in a drum sander ?
Other than that I just love this drum sander,I have not changed the sandpaper on it yet ,what’s on the drum right now is 80 grit but it seems to do a good job so far.
