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.

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!
