I have the 26" Woodmaster Drum Sander and have installed the reversing
switch for the belt. I would not be without it.
If you setup and the "cut" is too shallow, without the reversing switch you
have to wait for the full board to feed through, deepen the "cut" and try
Or if it is too deep, you can reverse before you damage the full board.
It is just generally handy to have and with the small cost of the switch I
wouldn't be without it. I mounted mine up near the top on the left side of
the machine for easy access.
