I love my super max. I did 9 kitchens in the last 11 months. 90 % using maple. I mill all my stock and then run all of it through the super max, 2 light passes with 80 grit takes care of the plainer snip, 1 pass 120 grit then 2 really LIGHT passes 180 grit. After assembling everything I go to 220 on ROS. What I mean by LIGHT passes is the drum is just thouching the wood anything more it will burn. I change paper under 2 min. with 120 sec. my best time.
A side note. Once you burn 180 grit paper its not much good any more.
