Having never owned a drum sander really don t see the need for it considering the quality of the finish from a planner? I have a 12” jointer/planner combo (carbide inserts) and have to admit I do sometimes miss the convienence offered from seperate machines but the extra floor space makes up for the changeover time.
Think if I could of found the extra 3 or 4 feet, would of gone for the 16” model!

Andre which P/J do you have? I ve been looking at a Jet 12hh since Hammer is seems to be an ordeal to obtain with long lead times.

I ll probably go this route and get a smaller DS for sanding thin stock for veneers and small box panels – well unless I consider trying to make one.

Mine is called a Scorpion from CWI, Canadian version of the Jet basically other than I have seen some Jets with ribbed tables? Sorry for the late reply, not keeping up with old posts, blame the nice weather!
I did do a quick review on it.
