Unlike conventional drum sanders that put the drum over the work piece, the SAND-FLEE® Drum Sander has it built into a cabinet and now with the NEW SF-0935 and SF-1835, it is covered by a 1/4" casted & milled (Jig-Plate) aluminum which is buffed, polished, and sealed with a protective chromate conversion coating, providing you the greatest amount of smooth-flat precision sanding. This unique patented design gives you direct control of the feed rate as you move the piece over the spinning drum. In addition you can now cover different sections of the drum with different grits of abrasive cloth or paper. Imagine progressing through different grits without having to recover the drum. It can't be any simpler or faster.
The hook and loop system of attaching abrasive material is quick and convenient. This approach also reduces heat build up by creating a small cushion of air between the abrasive and the drum. By sanding at a lower temperature the abrasive has a significantly extended useful life and because you are only sanding with the grit of the abrasive, you will not burn your work piece.
Changing abrasive is also simple; lift up the hinged top, peel off the spiral wound strip and wind on a new one. No tools and no messy adhesives to deal with.
Another great feature is a power takeoff shaft extending from the side of the cabinet. By adding the optional keyless chuck you can start using very efficient sanding mops for irregular shaped moldings, bowls, carvings etc...
SAND-FLEE® Drum Sanders are available in 9” and 18” versions. Both feature a full length dust collection tray which can be emptied through a 2-1/2” vacuum hose fitting. Both the SF-0935 and SF-1835 come with a 24” extruded aluminum T-Track fence, allowing you to support taller pieces and turn your SAND-FLEE® into an edge sander or sander/jointer.
