good choice, be sure to post a few pictures after you get it set up. I think your door volume justifies it, especially if you got a decent deal on it.

With a 37” belt width & 7.5 hp you’ll push through doors in no time, I’d bet 10x faster than a drum sander. I think our Timesaver was about 37” also. the nice thing about the wider belt is you can run several doors through in parallel and really up your throughput. be sure to send them through at a slight angle, and try to use the entire width of the belt to even out the wear.

good luck with it!
