I currently have a Performax 16-32 ( http://www.performaxproducts.com/Catalog/1632Plus.html ), and I have an opportunity to upgrade to a ShopPro 25 ( http://www.performaxproducts.com/Catalog/ShopPro25.html ). For those of you who don't know, the ShopPro is a closed both end 25" drum sander. The one I am looking at is a five year old model that has been very well cared for, and much heavier duty than the current model, for example, it is 5HP vs. the current 1.5 HP motor.
The largest glue up I have done was 25" for a table top, but I am sure as soon as I buy this machine, I will need to flatten a 26" panel.
What is that largest glue up most of you have done?
Those of you with Delta 18-36 sanders, or Performax 16-32's, do you often use more than 25" of capacity? If so, what for?
Anyone want to buy a month old Performax 16-32 with castors, infeed/outfeed tables and loads of sandpaper? Offers?
