  1. Thanks for these videos. I watched it because the title mentioned “drum sanders,” which actually don’t seem to be covered in this video. I struggle with my 16/32 drum sander trying to sort out what grit to use, and how to keep from burning wood and damaging belts (I AM getting good at changing belts, though-haha $$$). Thanks!

  2. Just want to say I am really enjoying this 'Basics' series. These videos are SO helpful, especially to beginners and 'improvers'. Thank you for sharing your experience and expertise. 🙂
