Most woodworkers have drooled over a drum sander at one point in their life. Whether it was for a project with lots of thin or figured pieces that needed sanding or for a tabletop that you wanted perfectly flat, the drum sander can be mighty enticing.

Unfortunately, drum sanders can be prohibitively expensive. So it was with much enthusiasm that we tested Performax’s new small-shop/economy drum sander. That’s not too say it’s inexpensive ($500), but the price does make it more reasonable for many.
