Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
There is more than one reason they call it the ’left coast’

Hope this is the correct spot for this post, I have an older Performax 16-32 drum sander model # 55230 and am trying to find a new drum to replace the current one that is seriously out of balance. (please don’t make me explain why). Anyway, hope someone can suggest where I can get a new one, (or perhaps get this one balanced).
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you did something to your drum that you shouldn’t have. I was going to suggest checking inside the drum for sanding dust buildup. I bought a used one that was out of balance, and discovered that dust had built up on one side. Cleaning it out helped a lot.
