Affordable Drum Sander ►
Performax's new benchtop drum sander sells for about half the price of the company's larger model but still offers proven features found on the bigger units. The model 16-32 sander lias a 16-in. long drum and uses spiral-wrapped abrasive paper that's easy to install without adhesives. And since the cantilevered design leaves the drum open at one end, you can work stock up to 32 in. wide by running each lialf of the surface through separately. The 16-32 will handle stock up to 3 in. thick, and its power feed belt adjusts from zero to 10 ft. per minute. A metal stand is optional. (Price: $799) Petfortnax Products Inc., Dept.
