I moved into this shop in October of 2012. It is on the second floor of an industrial building. My space is L shaped with one leg being the machine area and the other assembly/wood storage/office/finishing room. 1875 sqft in all. I wish I could post more than 5 pics!

I finish sand with a quick pass at 180 followed by 220 up to my desired finished grit. Where a drum sander excels is in veneer work especially when making shop made veneer as I do regularly. When it comes to making doors I run all of my stock through the drum sander prior to cutting to size so that I only need to do minimal finish sanding after assembly. It is a 25" dual drum powermatic. I had an open end delta drum sander prior and like your ryobi it couldn't handle a serious work load. For the money the powermatic or general, I believe that they are nearly the same machine, are great pro grade drum sanders.

TIMOTHYPATRICK TIMOTHYPATRICK writes: Sorry in advance for the tool quiz. How do you like what i"m assuming is a powermatic 25,26"dual drum sander? I had a little old ryobi drum sander that didnt have enough power for much. I recently bought a Mirka Ceros sander so my finish sanding is in order. I would love to have a wide belt but that is way out of budget.I guess my real question is what can you use that dual drum for? Do you just use it for glued up panels and long length stock or can you sand assembled doors with it? I ask that because of the cross grain sanding you would have on doors.
