Smile Introducing myself ...

Hi everyone,

I found this forum looking for anyone that had published sketchup plans for the stockroom supply drum sander, as I really wanted something a little better than their 1 pager that comes in the box. I have been a woodworking hobbyist for perhaps 25 years and have a fairly well equipped basement firetrap, urr, shop. I hope to enjoy this site, pick up tips, and perhaps share any mistake driven tips of my own.

Hi Chris,
I used their one pager AND the video on their site.
It's really easy to make.
I used BB for the box and laminated a piece of 1/4" pvc covered masonite over a piece of 3/4" MDF for the table, as I couldn't find any 1 1/8" MDF like they recommend. I don't know where you are, but you might be able to find the 1 1/8" material. If you can, I'd suggest putting a good hard finish on all sides and edges and waxing the top after sanding the top's finish.
Mine works like a dream and has saved me mucho hours of sanding.
