I noticed the drum sander barely visable in the lower corner, just picked up an older 16” dual drum off Craigs List. Still cleaning it up and haven’t run it yet other then the test when purchased. What are your thoughts towards that sander?

I use that sander every day. It’s one of my favorite machines in the shop .
I resaw wood to 3/8” the sand it to around 1/4” on this guy.
Go slow, flip the wood every trip through and never stand in front of the output side.
It has a tendency to shoot boards out at the speed of sound and I actually broke my left hand by catching a board with the back of it while not paying attention. I still have a scar to prove it.. I use 80 grit on the first roller and 150 on the second felt covered roller. For all of its quirks, I couldn’t live without it.
I have a 4ft ladder that I set up a few feet from the output side to catch any random boards that might want to fly. Mak sure the table is flat to the drums. you can do that by loosening the chain for the jacks and adjusting each until they are all the same height, then rethread the chain.
All in all, I really like the machine, it just has a few quirks to watch out for. Did I say go slow?? take off a little each pass, don’t hog it… Hope this helps. Tom
