Is that a Flatmaster? I bought a kit and built a similar machine that works the same way from the same company. I now use the Jet 16-32 more but my kit version of this sander works very well. The problem with this configuration is you can t control how much material is removed and from where very well. You can wind up with a board with sides that aren t parallel with too many passes.

Hey Art. Yeah it is a Flatmaster. The 30” version with fences and holddown rollers. I will definitely have to pay attention to keeping things parallel. I like that it’s less likely to burn the wood and load the sandpaper. Probably won’t pursue a cantilevered sander now that I have this…small shop space. Unless someone wants to GIVE me a 16-32 sander!! ;-D
