I had a Woodmaster drum sander. It was the
same as the combination models but I didn’t
have the planer head. The drum on these is
about 4” diameter, maybe less. This makes
wraps short and easy to change but also
means the paper wears out faster than
larger drums and the drum may heat up more
too. Good dust collection is a must for

The other big difference is the sanding feature
is fed not by a conveyor belt but by rubber
rollers like a planer. I didn’t have complaints
about mine about that but I never tried it on
small or thin parts.
