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.

Great Addition to my Shop
Let me begin by saying I was dead set on getting the 16 32 or even a jet but everyone was out of stock. I I wanted a drum sander for a project. I was told that the earliest delivery I could expect was 60 to 90 days out, so I thought well I can come up with the additional money because I will have plenty of time to make payments... put down $500.00 and left the store. That was on a Wednesday, Next Monday I got a phone call saying my Drum Sander was here.... LOL Best mistake I have ever made. Went back and got the inferred outfield tables and just got the Wixey DRO... every piece of wood I use goes through this machine. Well Built and a work horse. BTW I was in the store today and they have about 6 of both the 1632 and the 1938..... Go buy one ..... its helps your woodworking!!!
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!
