Once you get the hang of running it it does a wonderful job. I have had mine for at least 15 years and use it daily in a small custom cabinet shop.

Pros & Cons on good quality drum sanders. For example: Wwodmaster
Woodmaster makes a good sander. Picking a sander really depends on how much work you sand and how wide. You can get the little jets cheap if you just need to do occasional sanding. If your running any real amounts of lumber your better off with something like the woodmaster double drum. The dust collection on the woodmaster leaves a little to be desired but overall its a fine machine.

Look at the sag in the shelf. Directions say to put the stand together first, including the shelf, but with any significant weight the shelf will bend.
Why build something once when you can build it three times....

If you want something that can remove some wood like a planer, then a dual drum is what you'll want. If you just want something to do some light sanding, then the single drum models will do a good job.
