Drum Sander

I am in the market for a new drum sander. I want to buy one without burning a whole in my wallet. Any suggestions?

Thats a bit "insulting" statement to a guy offering you something for free. I believe "ryobi" did make a drum sander once.

Would that Ryobi be like the compared to the Performax on this link? It would definitely be something to jump on. I'd love to have one.

http://www.ncwoodworker.net/forums/d...do=file&id=151 this link goes to another woodwork forum, it stated that the ryobi manual is no longer available, but Steel City Tools is producing the machine under their name now and has a manual available.

Flintlock I may be interested in your drum sander. If it's what I am looking for, I will pay you for it and pay shipping. Post what model it is so I can look it up Or post a pic of it. Thanks for your time. Rick

I'll try to get a picture of it as soon as I get the chance. I've never posted photos, so may be a little adventure. It is a thickness sander that has horizontally mounted drum about 5 inches diameter by 18 or so inches long. Sandpaper belt is wound around in spiral fashion to cover surface. Worked well several years ago when I was finishing my basement and had some thickness work to do. I was less pricey than the Performax when purchased. Let me do some homework and I'll report back.
