Before I purchase any product I always check reviews online. The biggest plus in your company’s reviews was great customer service. I now see why. – Larry
Purchased the SuperMax 19-38 drum sander. I think it is a great machine. My dust collector gets all the dust. The sander works great. Wished I had purchased one years ago. I am impressed. – Ron M.
If you guys ever expand your line to other woodworking tools I think you’d have a market. The repeatable accuracy and ease of setup of the drum sander is truly outstanding. I’ve had to replace three other machines in the last few years. I’d pay twice as much to get [SuperMax] quality tools. So would others I expect. – Brian R.
The 19-38 sander is excellent! Right out of the box, I tried a glued up panel that was 32 inches wide. The results were excellent. There was absolutely no signature line in the overlapping area. We have been using this sander for a little over a month now to do final sanding prior to assembly of custom furniture and have absolutely no problems. It is better than any other open-ended drum sander currently on the market and is very competitively priced. If you are looking for this type of sander, look no further. This is the real thing. – Ron via Amazon
Bottom line: this is a quality machine, beautifully built and finished. It’s much better made and finished than Grizzly, Jet, Shop Fox, etc. The 19-38 is a very good value, being simply a rather plain, heavy-duty, industrial-quality machine that would be fine for a small professional shop. I’m happy with it, especially considering that I had nearly decided on the 25” Powermatic closed-end dual-drum machine for three times the price of the SuperMax and I would have been limited to 25”-wide workpieces. – Michael A. via Amazon
I say thanks to the engineers of this machine for the following reasons:
-tool less and tapeless paper change. A+
-tool less alignment adjustment (it is built into it) A+
-almost 250 lbs of cast iron to dampen the vibration A+
I would still recommend this to anyone who asked about one. I looked at Jet, Grizzly and delta, but settled for this one. The reviews as well as some recommendations from other magazines. It works as described and is a very simple machine to use. This is a great addition to my shop as I was looking for a drum sander for a long time. – “Dbungarz” via Amazon
Thank you so much for helping me get my 19-38 drum sander in good working order. I really appreciate the over and above, total customer satisfaction approach! I love the sander. The quality and results make it a pure pleasure to use. I have been using it for veneer, wide panels and just general use. It gets used more than I ever thought it would. Thanks again for such a quality product and great customer support. – Dave V.
I would like to thank you for producing a great product (19-38 drum sander). I purchased mine about a month ago. I have a small cabinet shop and the addition of this sander has saved considerable time prepping my stock and finishing cabinet doors. I would also like to thank you personally for your customer service during the purchasing process. – Scott R.
Just wanted to drop a quick note to say that I just bought another 37″ drum sander. Three years ago I had a 37 x2 drum sander and it was quite impressive. I pushed many mahogany counter tops through it and while it wasn’t lightning fast it did great and produced an amazing finish. Then after moving shops I purchased a 36″ Timesaver and wow that was fast. BUT it was a power hog and in a one man shop it took more room than it was worth. Also for cabinet doors and face frames, it was overkill. I went back to a movable 37″ single drum and again I was SuperMax impressed with ease and quality of finish first and machine second. Not only does it take much less room, but it produces the same finish as its industrial equivalent. Unless your pushing doors galore or counter tops all day long, the Supermax will not only make you money, but make money on the move. A believer again, am I. Thanks for the USA made product. – Chris D.
When I bought my sander about 10 years ago, it totally revamped how I worked in the shop. It gave me a 20% increase in productivity from what I had been doing before and was by far, the best investment that I’ve ever made in my shop. Recently I had to do some maintenance on the sander and it was very satisfying to be able to call up SuperMax Tools, immediately reach a live and knowledgeable sales person who was able to identify the problem and send me what I needed to repair the machine. – Del Cover, Del Cover Woodworking
My ShopPro 25 arrived on Tuesday in good condition and I have it all set up in the shop. After running a few boards through, I can see why you are so proud of your product. I am impressed with the American made quality, the sturdiness, and of course the finishing! My first big job will be running a few hundred board feet of rift cut white oak through the ShopPro 25. I can tell you right now, I know the project will turn out great and I won’t dread sanding like I used to. Thank you for convincing me to purchase this great investment for my shop! – Joe H.
The SuperMax Tools SuperBrush 36″ literally saves me $1500/month in materials alone. I used to spend $750/ month on abrasive products and $750/month on sandblasting. Now I don’t have all that mess to deal with and our pieces come out perfectly smooth. Thank God for the SuperMax Superbrush! – Tim Craft, Heritage Shutters, Inc.
The more I use this machine, the more I wonder how lived without it. I joined a couple of cedar panels the other day and ran it through the sander to thickness. I did in a couple of minutes what would take me an hour or more before with hand tools. Amazing! Thanks again for all your great help. - K. Casper, about our 25×2 drum sander
The SuperBrush sander eliminated one employee and paid for itself in three months…and it doesn’t whine! – Mark H.
This is the #1 machine to produce a product for denibbing that is phenomenal, comes out super clean and totally spotless. Using the SuperBrush provides us with totally consistent finish for staining. Our doors come out completely finished, ready for stain.- Scott B., Williams Kitchen and Bath
I just wanted to thank you again for taking your time to come and visit us in Nashville. You made the operation of your machines easy to understand, and very user friendly. And I especially appreciate you taking time to cover the maintenance and adjustment items, AND answer all our questions, in detail. You know, the SuperMax Sanders are a tremendous value, but when the SANDING WIZARD himself comes to town for on the job training, it makes for an unbeatable combination. Again, I sincerely appreciate you sharing your time and expertise with us. And of course, I’m looking forward to a long relationship with SuperMax. – Bill Cunningham, Beckwith Interiors
Your answers, professionalism and knowledge has made me change from Opti Sand to you. – Dominique B.
Recently you investigated and found two brass bushings for my 37/2 SuperMax sander. You then mailed them to me at no charge. Better yet, you spent your time which I’m sure is at a premium. I just wanted to thank you for your service and expertise. It is comforting to know I have a friend in the “business. – M. Morocco, Bella Railings
