Our original logo was developed in 2005, when SuperMax Tools began. We thought it was time for a refresh. What do you think?

It’s amazing how many cabinet shops we work with that had employees devoted to hand sanding, specifically raw wood and sealer sanding. The finishing work for cabinets was becoming the bottleneck of production, slowing down projects, and making them difficult to complete on time and on budget.
Enter the SuperBrush. The SuperBrush sander is a highly versatile machine that can be used in a wide variety of applications. One of the most common applications is raw wood and sealer sanding cabinet doors.
For this application, the SuperBrush is equipped with a flatter style brush head. To raw wood sand, which breaks the edges and opens the grain for stain, a 180 or 220 grit flatter strip would be used. After all raw wood sanding is complete, the flatter strips would be changed to a 320 grit to sealer sand in between coats of stain. Changing between grits is easy; the flatter strips simply slide out of the brush head, and can be changed in a matter of minutes.
With a single head machine, sanding cabinet doors is a two-pass system. The doors should be run through the sander at a slight angle to allow for the bristles to completely penetrate the corners. After a first pass, the doors should then be rotated 180 degrees and passed through the sander a second time. This video gives a brief overview of the process.
A SuperBrush 36 (36″ width) is the most common model we sell into cabinet shops. This accommodates nearly all doors to be run through at a slight angle. We also offer models in 24″ and 49″ inches.

We had a busy booth in Las Vegas during the AWFS Fair last week. We talked to many of you about your sanding bottlenecks and how a SuperMax sander could provide you with a solution to save you time and money. It was great meeting many of our current customers face-to-face. We appreciate you all stopping by!
We also debuted our 25-50 Drum Sander, the largest open end sander on the market today. Check out the video from Woodworkers Journal, and listen as Warren explains the features and benefits of this innovative machine.
Again, thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth. We look forward to seeing you in 2015!
