Product Description

This is a very different drum sander than the traditional drum sander. Our V-drum and Flatmaster Drum sanders sand from the bottom up instead of the top down therefore eliminating sanding through the sawdust that has already been removed. This unique sander is also the only sander that we know of the does not create static, therefore eliminating saw dust remaining on the wood or other material, leaving a clean surface. The third and most important aspect of our drum sander is that all other sanders rely on the user of the machine deciding on the correct pressure to exert on the back of the sandpaper with either a pad, plate, or drum.

Our sander relies on a perfectly flat top and the paper lifting off of the drum. Yes, lifting off of the drum. Because of these sanders using hook and loop and the high RPM of the drum, centrifugal force pushes the paper off of the drum and allows the hook and loop to tighten up, creating an air gap under the paper. This air gap allows for cool sanding. No longer will sandpaper load up when sanding paint, varnish or glue and it will also sand resinous woods like maple, cherry or pine without burning. This is a truly useful wood working tool for both the professional and the hobbyist, for flat sanding and edge sanding, also useful for glass, granite, aluminum, steel, and plastic. Unique Features of the V-Drum and Flatmaster Sanders - 1. No clips needed for holding paper. VELCRO brand hook and loop is used for changing paper - simply unroll one grit and roll on another. 2. On longer drums use two or three different grits at once. 3. Klingspor brand stearate coated paper will sand pine, paint and even nails without damaging the sandpaper, a savings to the user. 4. Sandpaper used on the V-Drum is less costly than the clothback paper used for commercial units. 5. The drum is made form polycarbonate tubing which runs cooler and eliminates static. With no static on the drum, dust won't stick to the paper. Instead it drops down into the box, allowing for easier dust collection. 6. With the use of fences and hold downs, the drum works much like a jointer. 7. Centrifugal force is a key element. Firstly it lifts paper off the drum creating an air gap. The air gap prevents the drum from creating heat, which in turn helps paper to last longer. Secondly, centrifugal force means it takes less power to run the "V"-Drum as the drum is not forcing the paper into the wood. 8. Depth of cut is changed by switching the grit of sandpaper. If you want to cut more use a coarser grit, but to cut less, use a finer grit, etc. The works kit includes the internal workings of the sander. It includes a drum, bearings, 2 - 10yd rolls of sandpaper 100g and 180g, 2 balanced pulleys, link belt and a DVD on how to build it. Also find plans and instruction videos on this website. Sizes of bearings, pulleys and length of linkbelt will vary according to the size of drum ordered.
