A drum sander with a full 500mm capacity (250mm x 2) well suited for use in the smaller workshop where space may be at a premium. N.B. These sanders are used for fine finishing, they are not intended to be used as a thicknesser or with coarse abrasive for significant stock removal. In all instances, they are intended to be used with planed and thicknessed material.
This unit can be bench mounted or floor standing using the optional floor stand as shown. The drum is made from an aluminium extrusion and is carefully machined and balanced to reduce vibration to a minimum. A specially designed device holds the paper loading in place under tension and enables the abrasive to be changed quickly and easily. The input 1,200W motor provides adequate power for the sander and a variable speed feed motor gives excellent sanding results in nearly all types of timber. The height adjustment handle works in 0.1mm increments for extremely accurate control over both finish and thickness. A single 100mm dust extraction outlet is provided, efficient dust extraction is vital with these machines, please make sure your system is adequate.

Jet 10 - 20I needed a drum sander that would sand boards as part of my stock preparations I had read all the reviews and was concerned about the height feed screw stripping the thread in the drum. I contacted the Sittingbourne branch explaining my worries. Two day later I received a reply from Holly saying that they have no knowledge of this problem and have had no returns. I was invited to visit the store and have a "play" which I duly did. I was served by a very polite and knowledgeable man and I again explained my worries. He was already aware as he had previously been approached by Holly which proves that every effort had been made upon my behalf to obtain a truthful answer.

Jet 10-20 plus Drum SanderIt would be a great machine if the rise and fall leadscrew design was improved ...in spite of regular lublicating I have had a problem with the 9/16" UNF threads stripping out of the alluminium drum housing assy: making the machine useless...But a solution was at hand.

JET 10-20 Drum SanderImpressed with the solidity and quietness of this machine. stalls if you try and take things too quickly but gives a good result when properly set up - take care however in making sure the drum is truely parallel to the bed or you'll get cupping in wider components if you do a double pass. I had to do the first few pieces a second time when I realised I had this problem.

Excellent machineI have had the Jet 10-20 for several months now and it produces excellent results. I use it for thicknessing acoustic guitar fronts, ribs and backs. For woods such as rosewood and other 'oily' timbers you can't really use anything finer than 60 grit and then finish off the last .5mm by hand. Really well built.
