We’ve addressed issues common with other drum sanders by adding five features that are exclusive to our 19-38 machines. No other drum sander on the market has these features! Simple alignment feature Just one nut will adjust the conveyor to parallel the sanding head, making aligning the conveyor to the sanding head fast and easy. Indexed alignment setting Has an indexed alignment setting for narrow and wide stock. When sanding stock wider than 19”, the index lever will properly adjust the conveyor for flawless wide sanding. 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. No backlash or slop in the height adjustment mechanism allowing easier and smoother height adjustments. Extra-wide conveyor to properly support stock over 19” wide. The conveyor table is 22” wide to add support to the workpiece. Drum will never go “out of alignment” The drum carriage is bolted to the base, preventing any movement or alignment issues. Additional Features: INTELLISAND™ Technology: Automatically adjusts conveyor speed based on load. Prevents gouging, damaging, or burning stock. Provides consistent finish even with varying grain pattern and density. Greatly increases abrasive planing and dimensioning speed. Flatness Guarantee: Precision-flattened steel conveyor bed reinforced with four steel cross sections for no “flex” in conveyor, guaranteeing flatness to less than .010″ across the width of the sander. Abrasive conveyor belt offers the best grip for raw wood, giving you the ability to accommodate stock that is much shorter or thinner. Patented Abrasive Attachment System effectively tensions the abrasive wraps, preventing loose abrasive and overlap. The easiest access to the abrasive fastening system of any drum sander! Extra-wide space to access fasteners to eliminate the need for special tools. The self-cooling drum prevents overheating and extends abrasive life. Tension rollers are adjustable in height and hold down pressure, eliminating snipe. Excellent dust extraction as dust cover is formed to shape of the drum. Metal, not plastic, is formed to maximize airflow and dust extraction. Heavy-duty cast iron construction for strength, rigidity, and reduced vibration.
