Take your sanding to the next level with a SuperMax sander. They have addressed issues common with other drum sanders on the market to create one of the best you can find. The 19-38 Drum Sander comes standard on SuperMax’s open stand, and the drum is pre-wrapped with 80 grit sandpaper. It features simple alignment: just one nut will adjust the conveyor to parallel the sanding head making aligning the conveyor to the sanding head quickly and easily as well as indexed alignment settings. The 19-38 has an indexed alignment setting for narrow and wide stock. When sanding stock wider than 19”, the index level will properly adjust the conveyor for flawless wide sanding. There are easy height adjustments: a thrust bearing below the handle and a nut positioned above prevents the drum from moving out of the set position while sanding and there’s no backlash or slop in the height adjustment mechanism allowing for easier and smoother height adjustments. It also features an extra-wide conveyer which properly supports stock over 19” wide. The conveyor table is 22” wide to add support to the workpiece.

Additionally, the SuperMax 19-38 drum sander features INTELLISAND Technology which automatically adjusts conveyor speed based on load and prevents gouging, damaging, or burning stock. INTELLISAND also provides a consistent finish even with varying grain patterns and densities. These drum sanders also have a Flatness Guarantee: the precision-flattened steel conveyor bed is reinforced with four steel cross sections for no “flex”; guaranteeing flatness to less than .010” across the width of the sander. Its patented Abrasive Attachment System effectively tensions the abrasive wraps preventing abrasive end overlap, and the 19-38 has easy access to abrasive fastening unlike other drum sanders along with an extra wide space to access fasteners to eliminate the need for special tools. The self-cooling drum prevents overheating and extends the life of the abrasive. Its tension rollers are adjustable in height and hold down pressure eliminating snipe. This unit also has excellent dust extraction as the dust cover is formed to the shape of the drum. It is metal, not plastic, and is formed to maximize air flow. The unit is constructed of heavy-duty cast iron for strength, rigidity, and reduced vibration.

    SuperMax 1938 drum sander

    Holy smokes this machine is awesome. I've been working on a built in entertainment center out of red oak and we were able to run all the 16" wide x 85" tall panels through this sander and it absolutely flattened everything out perfectly. Since I did not purchase the infeed/outfeed extensions yet, I did need to place roller stands on both ends to take out the panel flex and prevent divots. We were able to run all 16 panels through in under 4 hours. Then I did a little finish sanding and we were assembling. Wow, how have I done without one of these for 20 + years. This device cut a ton of work out. This is a must have in a woodworking shop. Can't wait to try sanding veneer with it.

    Invaluable when you need it

    I love this machine! This took me a bit to get squared away initially - the drum was slightly out of alignment with the table out of the box and I tend to be a "use it first, tune it later" kind of guy. Trust me on this one: Take the fifteen minutes to ensure parallel drum/table alignment and you'll be a happy camper. This quickly took an end grain cutting board that I'd made and fixed all the lumps and different height blocks and flattened them nicely. Hours and hours of hand sanding saved by this tool. My hands and shoulders and extra shop time benefitted greatly!
