How does your sander perform on a planed, solid piece of wood? If I were you, I would start there. If you have planer and a jointer, joint one face of a board, then plane it. That way, you are running a board through your sander that already has flat parallel faces. If it comes out still with flat, parallel faces, you know your sander is ok and your problem stems from something off in the rings. If the board comes out bad from your sander, you know where to start trying to fix things.

If you don’t have a jointer and planer, so you can’t be sure that your test board is flat and with parallel sides, try a piece of MDF as your test board.
