Default Sanding Drums

This may be a bit over the top, but I am going to ask anyhow.

I was in one of our local hardware stores the other day and was looking at some drum sander arbors and disks in 1-3 inch diameters and the instructions stated they could be used from 10,000-35,000 RPM depending on size.

Now here is the question. why could they not be used in a router table if one doesn't another means of using them?

One of the best reasons not to do that is the speed! If there is any thing that is out of round, and I will guess that it is, The table may be rattling around, and may come apart, or the router collet may not stay tight . I certainly would hate to get hit with the arbor, at that speed!

Are you sure they didn't have the decimal point in the wrong place? 10k to 35k RPM sounds a tad high - 1k to 3.5k doesn't

Hi Ken - I'm kinda with Phil on this one. Sanding drum at 20k would likely start a fire faster than a boy scout on steroids.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
