Looks great with that back and forth motion. Does that eliminate the straight lines like I get with my regular drum sander?

You definitely get your exercise walking back and forth to re-feed the pieces when thickness sanding. I have the jet 22-44 non-oscillating model for a number of years now and it has worked flawlessly

Wish this sander was around when I was looking for a drum sander. The oscillating feature will br better for finins sanding and kinder to belts. I may need to upgrade to a newer sander.

Me again,
I came back to take another look at the sander in action, what initally attracted me to the blog first up was the word “Thicknessing” in the title.

I initally was not going to reply
As after watching your video I was satisfied that it was actually only sanding.
So I then went and checked out your project posts, I would give them all a thumbs up.

Now understanding your experience and skills I must ask why did you call it thicknessing?
No doubt you know it possibly the quickest way to ruin a great machine along with its consumables and possibly the project too.
