Looking at a Shop Fox W1854 drum sander. Anyone have any experience with this machine?

Paul, did you get the W1854? I have a Delta Drum Sander 31-255X which is somewhat similar and is the PITS! Lately I’ve had a LOT of issues raising and lowering the table. The major difference between the Delta and the W1854 is the Delta uses a belt and plastic gears. The W1854 uses a sprocket chain and I’m not sure about the gears. If you have the W1854 I’d like to discuss it with you to see if I change to a chain would I resolve my problem? Or should I just get a supermax.
