3. Drum sander. This is on the upper end(over) what I was wanting to spend. Right now I am taking all my panels to my wood supplier who sands them for me, no charge. This is a luxury and a hassle at the same time.

My day job is at a small business surveying equipment and producing reports and efficiency is everything. How much time do you lose going to your wood supplier? Will he do this for free indefinitely? This seems like the obvious choice to me to avoid relying on the good will and work capabilities of others.

On the other hand, I don’t know your business. Maybe the sprayer would be the way to go, if it truly saves you time, but I don’t know how one sprayer would save considerable amounts of time over another (I’m not familiar with spraying, might be missing something). Like has been said before, take that money you have saved and pay yourself the half day to make things more efficient around the shop so your life is less stressful and more productive each day.
