Flatmaster sander

I just purchased a 24" Flat master from Stockroom Supply. After taking considerable care to set up the maching I am not removing much material.

For example with 120 grit sandpaper it takes 30 passes to remove a wavey pencil line form a flat piece of soft pine. When I changed the paper to 80 grit it still took 6 passes to remove the pencil line.

Is this what I need to expect form this machine.

Is the table adjustable? I built their V Sander and you can adjust the table relative to the paper for more aggressive sanding.
Also, give them a call. there are just a few folks working there and you'll get an answer quickly. They were great in helping me during my build.

Hey I bought the same thing thinking I was going to sand cab doors. I found our real fast it was going to take 30 plus passes to do the job. IM real dissapointed in this purchase. I have found other uses for this machine, but the expense dosent justify the purchase.
