This should be the simplest thing in the world to install, but somehow NOTHING is lining up for me. I recently picked up a used Performax Supermax 37×2 drum sander. I called supermax and they told me the machines are identical and the parts are interchangeable. Sweet. I received the tables yesterday, and started to put them on and none of the bolt holes line up. Does anyone have this machine who installed the tables? At this point im 90% sure that there is some incompatibility going on with the new tables and old machine, but comparing the two machines via images, they look identical except for 3 dust ports versus 2 dust ports. They are closed until Monday, so this is my desperate plea for help!

I did solve it. What year is your machine? They redesigned that table support after Supermax split from performax/jet. Basically, you need to replace the steel brackets that support the conveyor table. They are like $75-125 to replace them. Once you replace the brackets, the infeed and our feed tables will line up correctly. I was kinda disappointed with the tables after a month and I returned them to supermax and got credit towards a rubber conveyor belt. The tables are pretty flimsy. At the time I was sanding table tops etc and they weren't nearly strong enough for my needs. I sold this machine recently actually. I miss it a bit, but I made $1500 off the transaction after using it for 3 years. Certainly eased the feelings of missing it every now and then. Let me know if you need more help I can probably search my email for invoices on the part numbers you need.
