Supermax Sander Sale

Recommended Posts

I have an older 16/32 performax. It struggles to hold settings.

Been looking at the 19/38 Supermax. Would be a nice upgrade

I'd wait for a while on the 19-38. Also from the woodcraft guy was that the 19-38 is going to get upgraded with the same features as the 16-32 (fast adjust lever, DRO, Conveyor motor).

I guess moving the conveyor motor to the other side making the top of the belt a pull motion instead of a push motion helped with some feed issues. I don't really see how it's much different but i guess it is.

Surprisingly, so far I haven't used the fast adjust lever.  It's nearly as fast to crank the handle to adjust a couple inches.  Not surprisingly, I don't use the DRO (though I'm sure I will at some point)

I could see this being handy if you messed a piece up down the road and you had to re-mill a replacement.  Of course It is only handy if you know what the original readout  was.

I wonder if this is a manufacturer sale or if it is at Woodcraft only?

I don't know wood craft seems to get a lot of sales the others don't like the in feed out feed tables ect.

I'm happy with cranking the height up and down so the quick adjust isn't that big of a draw for me.  But then they had to go and make folding tables for the 19/28 ! Really don't want to spend another $129 but it sure would make storing it a lot easier. Guess I will have to make up my mind before I build the drawer base.

Nice. I figured that 16-32 would drop in price soon. They were just asking too much for it and priced it too closely to the 19-38. I bet AcmeTools would price match with Woodcraft just in case its only a Woodcraft deal. But I bet itll be an across the board price drop. Glad I held off!

It's not a drop pretty sure it's a sale. I personally don't think that the asking price was too close to the 19-38, the new 19-38 is probably going to be $1499-$1599 after the add the quick lever modify the feed belt and add in the DRO. jets 16-32 is only $100 cheaper and doesn't have DRO from factory. The subjective debate is if the supermax is inherently better.
