  • A Ton of Sawdust in a Single Session

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Surface, thickness, and smooth with a single machine
    Cons: None

    Summary: When it comes to thicknessing and smoothing wood my shop has several options. There is a 6” jointer that can get an edge and a side both flat and at right angles to each other. There is a 12” planer that can get the other side both flat and ... read more

  • One of the most used tools in my shop!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, easy to use, and a real workhorse!
    Cons: A little tough to adjust the drum.

    Summary: This is one of those tools that falls into the "do I really need it?" category before you buy it, and then shifts into the "how did I ever get along without it?" category almost as soon as you get it home! I was building a large, built-in desk unit ... read more

  • Great Sander

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quick, easy change on the belts. Accurate and versitle. Well built machine.
    Cons: Belts seem a little expensive until you consider the time savings and accuracy.

    Summary: After 40 years of small to medium woodworking projects I've accumulated a pretty good collection of tools. I'm now building a set of Cherry Cabinets and I absolutely dreaded the Raised Panels for the doors. The thought of gluing up and then truing up 32 ... read more

  • Well worth the cost for smoothing glue ups

    Jan 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: can sand uneven boards flat.
    Cons: better cover and latch design.

    Summary: I have used this sander since Christmas(you can guess how I obtained it) and I have used it quite frequently since them. My first use was to sand down a 15 inch wide table top glue up made of red oak. It worked wonderfully. I did trip the overload on ... read more

  • A good hobbyist tool

    Mar 18, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Not suited to production activities

    Summary: I purchased my sander in November and have only used it infrequently until March. I'm using it to surface mesquite after I run it through my planer, and for the most part it works well. I've had problems with the overload protection ... read more

    Aug 19, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy setup excellent video Easy to change sandpaper well made unit
    Cons: none

    Summary: This is fantastic machine for the money. It was very easy to set up and use. I practiced for about an hour and I felt very comfortable. I did, however, have to adjust the tension rollers. That was easy as well. My first use was a table top that was ... read more

  • Great for desks and counter tops

    Apr 6, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent Fit and Finish. Truly a precision machine. After three years, I still love it.
    Cons: Sanding very long wide boards (2 ft by 9 ft) is difficult.

    Summary: A problem I always have when creating wide boards by edge gluing them together, is that it's almost impossible to get the final surface perfectly flat. 30 inch planers and 30 inch drum sanders are way beyond my budget, so I was thrilled to read a ... read more

  • Sanding to Perfection

    Nov 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, easy-change belts, separate variable feed control.
    Cons: Glue joints can clog sandpaper.

    Summary: How many times have you wanted to bring uneven surfaces to perfection? Belt sanders, orbital sanders, and hand sanding help, but the precision just isn't there and it can be a lot of work and take up a lot of time. The Performax people have the ... read more
