I agree with Chiseler. If you can afford a wide belt sander and have a dust collection system to handle the dust it is the way to go. It is easy to change belts to any grit you want where with a drum sander you are pretty much stuck with one grit unless you go to a lot of work. Another thing I like about a belt sander is when the belts become loaded I put them in a barrel of water let them soak and the wash them with a pressure washer and reuse them. I use a lot of sanding sealer on wanes coating and other work. I let it get very dry and then use a loaded 180 belt as a buffer belt and the work comes out very smooth ready for other final finishes. I am 92 and have had my wide belt sander for years. No more aching joints from hand belt sanders.
