    2-0 out of 5 stars difficult to adjust
    This is an extremely important addition to the Performax 16-32 drum sander that doesn't compare to an otherwise well designed machine. The installation is relatively easy, two bolts on either side to mount the side brackets. The trick is to get the tables flat corresponding to the conveyor belt. After raising and lowering the tables and brackets several times I managed to get them close, but not where I wanted them, which is dead on. As a previous reviewer stated, they have a tendency to trail off (down) at the ends away from the machine, which makes them almost useless. Take it from a guy who has owned both the Performax and the Delta: you are still better off with the Performax. This item should be at least close right out of the box, and perfect with a few adjustments, but I'll have to settle for close.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Hard to adjust.
    It took me the better part of two evenings to get these tables installed and adjusted properly. Even after I got them the way I wanted them, during use they didn't provide the positive support I was hoping for.I mostly just use them to keep the workpiece from falling to the floor.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Flimsy and ...
    I returned these tables along with the Performax 16-32 sander. (see my review titled "Extremely Disappointing")The problem with the tables is they can't be mounted to be co-planer with the bed of the sander.Instead, they tilt downward, away from the conveyor.They also don't align evenly with the conveyor from side to side. Aside from giving the illusion they beef up the 16-32, they are of very little use. Save your money and build your own. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Performax22-44 drum sander is a true workhorse around the shop. Designed primarily for finish sanding, light dimensioning, and occasional abrasive planing, the sander can dimensions stock up to 44 inches wide on just two passes beneath the drum. The drum itself is designed to resist heat build-up, even after hours of continuous use. The result is clean, consistent surfaces without stretching the abrasives or burning the wood, making the sander well-suited for production work. But this drum sander is also highly precise, dimensioning stock to within .010 inch across the full width of the board. A reinforced internal spoke framework strengthens the drum and helps it resist warping. Abrasive strips are held firmly in place by a spring-loaded mechanism and metal fastener, eliminating the need for adhesives. The feed rate is automatically controlled to run at optimal speed for the varying conditions of the wood, eliminating guesswork and providing a consistent finish regardless of grain pattern and density. And a cast-iron drum support and leg supports provide added stability, reducing vibration. The drum sander handles a wide variety of stock. Thickness can range from 1/64-inch up to 4 inches, while the length of the boards can be as little as 2-1/4 inches. The Pro model comes fully assembled and can move easily around the shop, so it's always handy wherever the need may arise.--Carl Thress ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars POST ORDER DISCOVERY
    I am anxiously awaiting delivery of my Performax 22-44 pro drum sander which I recently ordered, and am looking forward to evaluating its performance. One thing I would like to point out to those interested in this or any product, what shows in a picture on the web site doesen't mean that that's what your going to get.The picture of the Performax 22-44 Pro Drum
    Sander shows casters, in and out feed tables, etc. I assumed were a part of the complete package. I was wrong to assume. Pictures portraying a package should state "Shown with Optional accessories not included."

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pricey for hobbyist - but well worth every cent!
    I've been mulling over a precision drum sander for years and finally pulled the plug on the 22-44.Aside from its 350lbs delivery weight, I had no problems getting it set up and the digital gauge calibrated.I haven't set it up for 220V use and think it would aid the drum, but so far the 110V has been handling the stock I've been passing through.

    This machine is solid and the mobile base and casters are far and away superior than the any of my other mobile bases.Lock the casters and the machine won't budge.Cutting papers is a pain, but a sheet will last the hobbyist a long time.There are also gum rubber sheets you can pass through to clean the drum.

    It is amazing how much time this machine saves since it not only brings the wood to finish grade sanding (with proper paper), but can dimension with extreme precision.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I went for the larger machine.
    Revised 1/8/04
    I had the usual problems that others commented on when I first brought home my 10-22.The conveyor belt initially tracked hard left against the tracker no matter how it was adjusted.PerformaX tech support had me reverse the belt and it still tracked hard left.I removed the conveyor table and returned it to the service department where I bought it.Sitting on the workbench supported by its mounting bolts, the belt quickly adjusted to perfect tracking. When I replaced it on my machine it immediatly went back to hard left tracking.I played with the mounting bolt tension to no avail.Another call to PerformaX netted me a new belt within two days and after a minor adjustment, the belt has tracked perfectly ever since.You can tell just how perfect your tracking is adjusted by holding a ball point pen to the feed roller immediately adjacent to the edge of the conveyor belt as the roller revolves.The mark left on the roller will very quickly indicate what drift, if any, is occuring.I like the way the ceramic trackers leave a light white residue along the edge of the belt if tracking is off.It shows they are doing their job and gives you a quick indication that readjustment is needed.They trackers should not come into play at all if your adjustment is dead center.Think of the trackers as an extra measure of safety.

    When properly adjusted, this sander lives up to the hype.You quickly learn how much wood to remove in one pass.Any mill marks from the planer or jointer are removed in one pass.It does a nice job of sanding edges on stock up to four inches wide.

    The machine really has to have a dedicated 20 amp circuit.Attached to a 15 amp shared circuit, it easily stalled out.I removed the electrical cover from the motor and found a clear diagram for rewiring the motor for 220 volts.Of course, you would then want to install a separate switch to power the drum as feeding 220 into the conveyor motor would quickly destroy it. It's nice to have the 220 volt option even though the factory warns against it.My sander is working so well that I see no reason to make the change.

    Sandpaper changeover is very easy and quick. I like the way the right hand clip helps take up any slack in the wrapping of the abrasive.

    I just completed biulding my oldest daughter a red oak dishwasher cabinet for her new house.All the trim for this was quickly sanded on the 10-22.I'm also finishing up an oak bar and This sander really saves time.

    I recently sanded some 16' x 6" red oak boards to box in a beam. using auxillary infeed and outfeed rollers.As the end of the wood came off of the the several rollers I had set up on the infeed side, the sheer physics behind the length and weight of these boards, transmitted this to the wood under the drum.This made for an extremely small "gouge".A handheld oscillating sander quickly fixed these very slight imperfections which only showed under close examination with a light.I've never seen any sign of this when working with lengths up to the more usual 6' - 10' lengths we commonly encounter in our furniture crafting. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars There was no manual included with this sander
    The tool is fine but there was no manual included with the sander.Since quite a bit of assembly is required to mount this sander to a radial arm saw, it took a long time to set up.I think I finally got it right.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT CONVERSION FOR YOUR RADIAL ARM SAW!
    FOLKS...LET`S FACE IT....ANYTIME ONE OF OUR SHOP TOOLS CAN BE UTILIZED, WITHIN A SAFE MANOR,(OTHER THAN WHAT IT WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED FOR)TO PERFORM DIFFERENT OPERATIONS, WE CAN FULLY REALIZE THE TOOLS POTENTIAL....NOT TO MENTION SIMPLE ECONOMICS! ONE SUCH TOOL THAT INSTANTLY COMES TO MIND IS THE MULTIFARIOUS DRILL PRESS...."NUFF SAID!" ALBEIT, IN THE PAST, ONE WAS ABLE TO ACOMMODATE A SMALL HOST OF ACCESSORY TOOLING TO THE RADIAL ARM SAWS AUXILUARY SHAFT (A DRILL CHUCK, VERTICAL SANDING BARRELS AND/OR A ROUTER COLLET CHUCK)WE WERE STILL PRETTY MUCH LIMITED TO THE SAWS VERSATALITY. ENTER, PERFORMAX PRODUCTS CORPORATION FOUNDER, GARY GREEN`S PERFORMAX S/T DRUMSANDER, MODEL 22-44. THIS, OUTSTANDING,PIECE OF EQUIPMENT IS OFFERED AS EITHER A FULLY SELF CONTAINED FACTORY UNIT, IN KIT FORM OR AS WE ARE DISCUSSING HERE.....AN ACCESSORY ATTACHMENT FOR THE RADIAL ARM SAW. IT`S SANDING CAPABILITIES ARE A FULL 22" WIDE WITHIN A SINGLE PASS OF THE HORIZONTAL DRUM.....OR 44" WIDE WITHIN TWO PASSES. ALTHOUGH I HAVE HAD MY 22-44 (HOOKED UP TO MY OLD RYOBI MODEL 2002 RADIAL ARM SAW)FOR MEARLY GOING ON THREE WEEKS.....IT HAS ALREADY SANDED OVER 2,000 FEET OF MATERIAL, AND I MIGHT ADD.. TO EXACTING SPECIFICATIONS! I DO HOWEVER FEEL COMPELLED TO ADD AN ADDENDUM TO THE MANUFACTURER`S CLAIM INASMUCH AS "BEING ABLE TO BE USED WITH MOST ANY RADIAL ARM SAW"CASE IN POINT: THE S/T IS DESIGNED TO FIT 10" AND 12" SAWS WITH A COLUMN TUBE DIAMETER BETWEEN 2-5/8" TO 3-1/8" AND YOU MUST HAVE A 5/8" ARBOR ON YOUR SAW`S MOTOR SHAFT TO FIT THE, SUPPLIED, PULLEY FOR THE BELT DRIVE CONNECTION TO THE SANDER. ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACTOR, TO CONSIDER, PRIOR TO PURCHASING THE S/T....IS THE MEASUREMENT OF THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOUR TABLE SURFACE AND THE SAW`S EXPOSED COLUMN....WITH THE RADIAL ARM RAISED TO IT`S HIGHEST ELEVATION. ONCE YOU HAVE THIS MEASURMENT, SUBTRACT 14-1/2" FOR THE S/T OR 15-1/5" SHOULD YOU INTEND TO UTILIZE THE POWER FEED UNIT AS WELL. THE DIFFERENCE, IN MEASURMENT, WILL DETERMINE THE MAXIMUM STOCK THICKNESS CAPACITY OF YOUR SANDING OPERATIONS. IN MY CASE.....THE RYOBI SAW NEEDED A MINOR COLUMN ALTERATION TO BE FULLY FUNCTIONAL. I DIDN`T PURCHASE THE POWER FEED TABLE AND AM TOTALLY SATISFIED WITHIN USING A PAIR OF "PUSH STICKS", THUS FAR. TO SUM IT UP...IF YOU NEED A WORTHY, LARGE CAPACITY HORIZONTAL DRUM SANDER, HAVE A RADIAL ARM SAW THAT YOU WOULDN`T MIND CONVERTING OVER TO A FULL TIME WORKHORSE ....AND, YOU DON`T WANT TO SPEND THE BIG BUCKS FOR PERFORMAX`S FLAGSHIP MODEL, THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT....THE ONLY WAY TO GO! HAVE FUN AND WORK SAFELY! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This top-of-the-line Performax drum sander can handle whatever your large shop throws at it. At the heart of the SuperMax are two drums, which allow you to use two grits at once. Using coarse paper on the first roll and fine on the second, of course, saves a lot of time. We are also impressed with the new motor-driven height adjustment--no more changing height by hand. An exclusive on this drum sander is Performax's use of SandSmart technology, a feedback control that automatically makes changes to conveyor conditions in response to subtle changes in your wood. Standard features, such as the self-cooling drums (which eliminate worries about warping wood) and the easily manipulated lever for adhesive removal, did not go unnoticed. Any negatives? Not really, only that you should know what you're doing. This is no tool for the novice. But for large shop owners with plenty of workshop acumen, this is a superb piece of equipment, one that's sure to increase productivity. --Michael Shilling ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars After sanding a few doors...
    Although I do this as a hobby, I used to work in a cabinet shop where wehad an industrial, wide belt sander - kind of the rich man's version ofthis tool.I became a believer in the concept after seeing it handlecabinet doors.For that very purpose I purchased one of these a short timeago.The amount of time this saved sanding the 30+ doors I did on my firstjob was nothing short of amazing.Not to mention the quality wassignificantly better than sanding by hand.It did require some handsanding on the rails that were sanded cross-grain - but that could havepossibly been eliminated with a more gradual change in sanding grits.

    Setting the machine up was pretty straight forward and the manual waswell written.

    If you're not doing a ton of sanding you could easily getby with the single drum model as changing the sandpaper is quick andsimple.

    Speaking of sandpaper, that is probably my biggest complaint - itain't cheap.Especially when you need several different grits. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    There's a saying among woodworkers about particular tools: "It only does one job, but it does it like nothing else." That's the case with Performax's ShopPro 25. Laminating different species produces a great look in a woodworking project, but if you've ever sanded a glued-up panel by hand or even with a palm or belt sander, you know the results can be unpredictable. Why risk a gouge with a hungry belt sander? With this beauty, you get a super-flat, super-smooth surface every time on workpieces up to 25 inches wide and 4 inches thick. Craftsmen will love the height adjustment's fine calibration, moving just 3/32-inch with every turn for sizeable or delicate depth changes. There's even a locking stop on the depth gauge for repetitive work. The feed rate adjusts like a dream from 0 to 10 feet per minute. We were especially impressed by the machine's quality: zinc-plated steel tension rollers, precision-flattened steel conveyor bed stabilized by four steel cross sections. Our only caveats: You'll definitely need a dust collection system with this, and if you're going to move it in your shop, buy the casters. A beautiful machine that does a flawless job.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    I purchased my Performax ShopPro 25 after doing a lot of research. I even kept the box it came, in just in caseI had to send it back. It performed well from the begining. The operation is smooth and with great results. You do need a good dust collector. Changing the sand papaer is quite easy and fast. With the optional set of casters, moving this heavy machine around is no problem. You need to be careful not to try to remove a lot of material at one time, otherwise, it will scoarch the wood, and you can ruin an expensive piece of sand papaer. I guess this is obviously the case with all drum sanders. The only reason I gave this otherwise wonderful machine four stars, is that the height control handle does not operate as well as I expected, you have to use two hands if you are rotating it full turns. I do believe that Performax makes some of the best drum sanders in the market. I highly recommend this product.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect For The Small Shop
    I wish I had enough space for a large surface sander.But, I do have enough space for the Performax 25.It really gets the job done.I can plug it into any 110 outlet in my shop and since it is on wheels it will beused then moved out of the way.It is easy to change the paper for themost part.A little tough on the fingers to clamp the ends of the paperdown.Performax remedied this problem by giving me a little bent peice ofmetal to use instead of my finger.The thickness guage is not as accurateas I would like, but I think it is fair.In summary, for the price andwith the ability to be mobile, this is a good tool. ...

    I decided on this sander because from what I could tell it looks modifiable in the sense that you could extend the dimention from the table to the sander head and actually sand a 16" or 18" box. I still believe this modification can be done by adding length to the stand's center pipe and replacing the screw adjuster with a longer one. However it could be the leg design won't handle the extra hight. So far I am very disapointed with the factory's packing design. A lot of heavy metal packed in a single layer box. The stand came having been broken open and taped together (I suspect by the shipping company) missing all the bolts to put the thing together and some other minor damage to a piece of almuninum casting called the drum carrage leg. I noticed that there was similar problems in the other reviews. Looks like a trend! Could be an excellent machine...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disapointing
    After waiting many months to actually receive this backordered item it was received damaged.The product is built very poorly and did not prove to be capable of even paralel sanding without multiple set-up changes for each piece which is being sanded.

    A bad product ... makes this a product to stay away from.I also would doubt that the more expensive version of this product would do any better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Performax 22-44 Componet Kit
    I just completed assembly of the 22-44 componet kit that I ordered from Tool Crib, and will review both the assembly and operation.

    Assembly:You will need to allow at least 6 to 8 hours for the assembly of themachine and it is best to have a friend handy for assistance.Performaxhas a video availble to aid in the assembly of the machine, however, thevideo seems to pre-date the current model and can be somewhat confusing,especially with the power feed.Also keep in mind that if you are going toadd any accessories, ie; drum adjuster, tension rollers, they should beinstalled in the initial assembly of the machine.With some patience anddetermination the machine can be assembled in 6 to 8 hours.The componetsappear to be made of high quality materials. Another plus is the assistancethat is available via telephone from Performax.

    Operation:Finally, Ican get a board truly flat which makes the building of woodworking projectsconsiderably easier.In operating the machine, one must always keep inmind that this is a sander and not a planer, I have found the machine to bemuch more effective when taking a very small bite.The sander has saved meconsiderable time when producing table tops or other flat panels.I wouldalso recommend including the drum adjuster and the tension rollers in theinitial purchase, they help the machine work better and are much easier toinstall in the initial setup.

    Overall, I am pleased with the machine.Ilook forward to discovering new ways that the machine can be used forimproving my woodworkin projects ... Read more
