Detailed Description

SuperMax 19-38 Drum Sander

The SuperMax 19-38 Drum Sander is ideal for use in small shops to reduce the drudgery and time spent sanding while making it quick and easy to achieve consistent, smooth results. Sturdily built, this machine doubles as a surface finisher as well as a light-duty abrasive thicknesser.

The SuperMax 19-38 features a rigid open-sided frame supporting a 19" sanding drum above an integral power feed table. You can sand stock as short as 2-1/4" or as long as you can handle, and up to 4" thick or down to 1/32" thick. You can sand a panel wider than 19" by simply reversing it and running a second pass, so you'll easily be able to finish pieces up to 38" wide.

The heart of the SuperMax 19-38 is the 5"-diameter self-cooling aluminum drum. A continuous-duty 1-3/4 HP motor provides plenty of power for sanding or light planing.

A leader in design innovation, SuperMax has overcome a number of issues commonly experienced with other drum sanders with several exclusive design features.

  • Simple alignment – Rotating a single nut is all that's necessary to set the conveyor precisely parallel to the sanding drum.
  • Indexed alignment – When sanding stock wider than 19", moving a simple index lever adjusts the conveyor .003" to eliminate a seam on the second pass.
  • Easy height adjustments – A thrust bearing and nut eliminates backlash and maintains the drum's height setting while sanding.
  • Extra support for stock over 19" wide – The conveyor table is 22" wide to give better support to your workpiece.
  • The sanding drum will never go "out of alignment", as its carriage is bolted to the base, thus preventing alignment issues.
  • INTELLISAND Technology automatically governs conveyor speed to match the load for consistent finish without gouging or burning.

The 19-38 also features easy access to its abrasive fasteners which require no special tools, an optimized metal dusthood to allow exceptional dust extraction, and heavy-duty cast iron construction to eliminate vibration. Two-year limited warranty.
