I agree that drum sanders are simpler
machines to maintain, but there’s a
large difference in how much time sanding
will take between a drum and a wide
belt.

I have a drum sander, which I dislike.
Never had anything but trouble with it.

I also have a small 12” wide belt and its
a very robust machine. I’ve spent a
fair amount of hours crawling through
it cleaning it up. At first it was mechanically
intimidating but now I’m familiar with it.

I also have a stroke sander which is quite
fast at sanding and very simple mechanically.
You might consider one of those.
