    Someone on OWWM told me this was from a company that went out of business in 1896. Danged if I can remember the manf. Sweet little drum sander.

    Wow, that doesn't look like something you'd move around a lot. I didn't realize they made drum sanders that many years ago. Very cool piece of equipment.

    Roger, that is one serious drum sander, I guess there is no Velcro on the drum to hold the sandpaper eh

    I really like to see old machines saved from being scrap metal or restored and still using them.........I think they are better than the new machines in many cases. You have a nice pc of equipment there and like my Davis-Wells band saw its heavy and im sure you dont move it around much....LOL
