A shop-sized drum sander that delivers performance.

With 12" width and 3-3/4" thickness capacity, the W1740 12" 1-1/2 HP Benchtop Drum Sander handles most stock sizes produced in a home shop.

This is the ideal machine for removing the telltale surface marks from a planer.

The variable-speed knob allows you to increase the feed rate from 2.47–17.3 FPM.

Accepts hook-and-loop sanding rolls for easy installation and grit changes.
