Jet 16-32 Plus Drum Sander

Recommended Posts

I finally broke down and purchased a drum sander while Jet was having a 15% off sale. After reading the reviews I decided to go with the 16-32. I had zero issues with tracking on the belt and leveling the drum was pretty straight forward. I spent about 2 hours setting it up and testing it out. I added a set of locking casters to make it mobile.

I usually spend a couple of hours leveling a glue up by hand when making cutting boards. This sander has saved me around 8hrs of work in the last week and a half. For me that is well worth the price of admission.....

I have not yet changed the paper so have not had to fuss with that aspect yet.

If you ever decide to step up to the big boy tool (without going all the way to a Timesaver or the like :) ) I also highly recommend the Jet 22-44 ODS. The oscillating feature makes it cut faster and smoother and the paper lasts longer. +++ in my opinion!

These are great tools/machines. I have a Performax 16/32 that I picked up a year or so ago at a going out of business auction for a furniture refinishing business. The thing was barely even dusty and I saved some pretty substantial bucks off the price of a new one. The bonus was that it also came with a huge bucket of sandpaper rolls in all grits.
