I'm geting ready to get a woodmaster drum sander (the big 50" model), and
have been trying to figure out if it worth adding the reverse feature. All
it does is reverse the feed belt direction - not the sanding drum. I don't
know how that would effect the sanding action (havng the stock moving inthe
same direction as the sanding drum).....
just wondering if anyone has this (or a similar) model, and if it really
makes a difference. the theory is that it will make multiple passes easier
(flip a switch and feed the stock back through instead of carying it back to
the front of the unit)....
