Surface, Thickness & Drum Sanders For Sale

Here is the guide that will hopefully have you set your right foot forward in the pursuit of getting good wood.

What is a drum sander and what is it used for?

Rather than having to use abrasive sheets and manually sand surfaces such as wood flooring, decks and other surfaces to get that desirable smooth finish that we all want, drum sanders is the solution to achieve that same goal, but in a much easier way.

This is a powerful tool where you can replace the abrasive sheets as they wear out, and while it may be a big tool, and perhaps a rather expensive one, it’s one we know people really appreciate if they are very serious about creating smooth surfaces.

As it does remove impurities from the top of the surface that you are using it on, it is still imperative that you protect your various organs adequately, which includes using a mask to cover your mouth, ear protection to protect against the noise and glasses for your eyes. Only at that time are you ready to use the surface, thickness or drum sander.

This page also lists all the drum sanders we have for sale on the platform as well as provide you with various commonly asked questions on various related topics to help you better understand the implications of this machine.

If you are not used to using this machine, you may want to start out in part of the room where it won’t do as much damage if the end result isn’t as perfect as you would hope for it to be – it is a big tool, and it needs to be treated as such, with a lot of these machines weighing in excess of 400 lbs.

This type of machine can help you with the most stubborn panel glue ups or if there are marks from furniture that was moved, or other things. The important thing is also that it can help you make sure that the board thickness stays the same across the board afterwards to provide you that appealing look.

If you have specific wishes for the things that you are either surface sanding or thickness sanding, make sure you check the specifications of every single machine. With speeds usually being around 2300, these machines can achieve a lot more consistent results than you would be able to achieve manually.

How much do they cost?

Drum sanders vary significantly in cost, but you will usually find that they range for roughly $600 whereas some of the machines can cost as much as $5,000 for more advanced ones with more capabilities. Before you buy a machine it is therefore important that you figure out which features are important to you, no different from if you were buying a plasma cutter.

What is the best drum sander – what to look for?

While it isn’t hard to buy a drum sander, it definitely helps if you know what it is you should be looking for in the process, as there are different options you can consider.

Some people may find it seemingly hard to find the right, but if you know what to look for it is easy. The drum sander is often considered the smaller brother to the wide belt sander, a more serious machine we also have available on the site, but none-the-less, it’s still a sizable investment for most people.

The quality of the material that you are sanding is important in your consideration for the machine you will end up choosing, but so is how big the material is, since you will obviously need it to be able to fit into the machine.

If you’re running a production shop, you will also need something that can obviously handle the quantity you will be using it for. For actual production shops, we do encourage you to at the very least consider a wide belt sander.

Here is a brief overview of your different options

Open-ended

If the ability to maneuver the boards is an important feature for you, this may be your desired machine as one of the sides is left open. It also gives you the advantage that you’re not quite as constrained by the width of the machine since you’ll be able to run half the plank through the machine, turn it around and pursue with the next one. Sanding both sides on this machine will usually mean having to run through it twice, though, so that has to be something you prepare yourself for.

Closed-ended

As these machines do not have the flexibility in the sides as do the open-ended machine, it does require that the piece of wood you’re running through is no wider than the entirety of the machine, why these tend to be wider, too. The advantage to this is of course that you can get things done at a different speed than you can with an open-ended option, not having to run the boards through several times to get the desired results.

Double-drum

When you’re looking for a more serious machine with more flexibility, the double-drum sander could be your choice of machine to consider. With the inclusion of two rolls of abrasive material, no longer are you confined to the same grit on each side, and you will also have to change it less often, too. For this specific feature, the SuperMax 25×2 is a great tool to look into, while Jet and PerforMax are worthy considerations also.

So, those are the various different options for you to be looking into, but besides that there are different features that we have touched on also.

Width ranges

The more serious the work you do is, and the better the finish of what you desire, the bigger your machine needs tend to be. These machines will vary from as little as 10″ to more than 37″, and the price tends to increase the bigger the width. If you’re a DIY, you can likely get all the work done with a 16″, while that may not be enough for others.

The ability to collect dust

As with any type of equipment that is sanding wooden objects, dust is an obvious consequence, and these drum sanders are no different. You should be combining the sander with an adequate dust collector to make sure that you don’t end up having roots grow out of your lungs, and getting the right amount of airflow is the key to success.

Feed rates and the ability to change the settings

The last thing you want to do is to massively oversand your piece of wood and justt end up having it entirely ruined, why it’s our recommendation that you get a machine where you can easily adjust the feed rate in a variable fashion, thereby giving you more control.

Which type of sand paper do you prefer?

Some people have a very strong preference for one of the two ways that sandpaper can be attached to the machine, being either peel and stick or hook and loop. With its adhesive on the back, peel and stick will get ruined if you remove it from the drum, whereas on the other hand if you’re not operating a wood shop, there may be advantages for you to be able to take it off before it is used up.

With the information above, you’re hopefully a bit better equipped for your future drum sander purchases, and know what you should be looking for in your pursuit.

3-Point Post Hole Digger For Sale

3-point post hole diggers are life savers and many of them can be used with category 0 tractors, why we have listed all our various options for sale on this page, along with the different recommendations on what you ought to be looking at.

Do make sure that you also get the appropriate auger with your device, as it may not be included in the sale, the most common ones being 6, 9 and 12 inch ones.

Rather than manually having to create these post holes, this device can help you get the job done from the convenience of your tractor.

There are various different options, including the Countyline post hole digger, and you can make sure that this PTO option is one you will be happy with. While you are perfectly able to rent one, if you’re looking to use one often, there’s a certain level of convenience for you to own your own.

While we know you could either have gone to Lowe’s, TSC (Tractor Supply), Home Depot, Harbor Freight or another place to get this fine piece of machinery, we hope that this article here will provide you with some insights you would not otherwise have gotten.

While this page is specific to 3-point options, it is not the only option for you if you are simply wanting to make a whole in the ground, why we have gathered a list of some of the competing products underneath. While we do realize the convenience of using your tractor for the purpose, especially when you are having to make a lot of holes, the increased transparency will ensure you’re getting the right model for your purpose.

Gas-Powered

One of the most compelling alternatives is the gas-powered option that you won’t be needing a tractor to use, but which also won’t be bringing you the convenience either. It definitely beats having to manually do it, and especially if the ground is very tough to break through, but you can’t be doing it from the convenience of a seated position either.

If you don’t have constant access to a tractor, this could be the perfect option for you. While a handheld auger may seem fun at first, and they’re what people will very often be using in the beginning, they’re not a long term solution for commercial needs. If you are a person that prides themselves on getting things done in a timely manner, you also need the correct tools to do it with. Anything bigger than having a hobby vegetable garden, and you will find yourself simply too frustrated having to put in the effort required with something manual.

Hydraulic

Hydraulic options also have a range of benefits if you are in a situation requiring especially powerful capabilities, and the addition of the hydraulic post hole digger attachments will especially play a role and be important when heavy clay or loose rock is present, since they’re able to provide pressures up to 3,000 psi which can be needed under these tough conditions, using flow rates ranging from 10 to 30 GPM depending on the conditions you’re dealing with.

Depending on your various needs, it’s important that you thoroughly consider the specifications that come available, including the max auger diameter on the basis of the type of material you will be dealing with, the depth of the holes you will be using, and the type of machine you will be mounting this thing onto. This is not your simple handheld machine. This is a piece of machinery when you’re getting really serious.

When you’re being met by the most demanding conditions, this is the option you will want, where you can typically get augers that range in size from 6 inches to 36 inches depending on the size of the hole you’re hoping to make.

Against very strong conditions, only the strongest will be able to provide the necessary force, and that is the hydraulic post hole digger, including the strong motor that comes with it. For extra rigorous conditions, you will need the machinery you can count on.

Electric

If you have significantly smaller needs, there are other options such as the electric ones. The same way a lot of people steer clear of electric chain saws, they also steer clear of electric post hole diggers, although they could be providing you with some benefits if you have very light needs. They will typically come with augers that are about 4″, so you are definitely not getting heavy-grade commercial stuff done with this, and it only makes sense that these aren’t able to provide nearly the same amount of force as the hydraulic options, as you aren’t even able to hold those in your hands.

These are ideal for your average DIY person who knows you’ll be making some holes here and there, but also realizing the limitations of this piece of machinery, why it comes with a price tag that is much more accessible to your smaller uses, hovering in the $200-300 range for a lot of the machines. With this, we’re still very much encouraging you to make sure that you have the auger drill that matches your needs, while keeping in mind that you won’t get anything bigger than 10″ achieved with this piece of machinery.

While we have seen machines advertise that they come with 12″ auger drills, you’re really pushing your luck with those machines.

Skid Steer

A skid steer post hole digger is an alternative to the 3-point options that are specifically listed on this page, but these will also attach to a machinery in order to get the job done, more specifically, these attach to a Bobcat rather than a tractor.

With their hefty price tags often reaching $3,000 for this piece of machinery, it is no wonder that these attachments are great when you’re lifting some heavy weight and don’t have the convenience of being able to spend all day manually digging holes – a task we ourselves would dread if we actually had to.

While there are a bunch of options when it comes to the fashion in which you’re hoping to dig a hole, we do sincerely encourage you to consider these 3-point options that we have listed on this page if you do have the tractor needed to make it work.

If you have any questions about the auger, or the type of soil you have available, and what is the best option in your specific case, we’re always available to help answer all your questions. One of our soil-crushing (get the pun) experts can assist you in whatever fashion is necessary to put those poles in the ground, even with the most difficult circumstances. And until you make sure that you’re getting the right machine for your job, we hope you have been able to put up with our bad sense of humor, and don’t mind the introduction of a pun here and there.

Pond Aerator For Sale: Solar, Pumps, Fish Tanks, Systems

Pond aerators are important devices to put in a pond in order to significantly improve the quality of the water, and on this page we have listed for sale all the various devices you can buy through our website, as well as see just some of the many benefits you should be aware of, how powerful of a machine you will need as well as a bunch of other useful stuff.

What does an aerator do for a pond?

Aerators have a lot of different benefits that ensure the proper conditions for the various wildlife in the pond, including improving the water quality and thereby becoming a better fish habitat, too.

In addition it reduces the phosphorus concentrations, which in turn helps limit the algae growth; a feature most people with a pond are happy about. It is very difficult to otherwise lower these concentrations once phosphorus has made it into the ecosystem, although with the use of oxidative reactions, you can have the phosphorus naturally bind with iron, at which point it precipitates and becomes unavailable as an energy source for the algae that would otherwise be feeding on it. The process does, however, require sufficient levels of dissolved oxygen, why the use of an aerator is heavily encouraged.

There are different types and strengths of aerators out in the market for you to consider, and we’re hoping to provide you with the necessary information on this page, allowing you to make an informed decision.

Do ponds need aerators?

While you can find a lot of different information regarding the need for pumping oxygen into a water feature, the obvious question in the back of a lot of people’s heads remain whether or not it is really necessary to get an aerator.

When most people choose to get a pond, they don’t realize that they are in fact not building something that is natural the same way that nature would have built it. The linen that they use does not accurately reflect what nature would have done, and as a consequence, there are certain things that you just need to do to keep the pond up to the level that most people want to keep it.

Let us ask you this question a different way. Did you have a pond installed with the intention of only doing the absolute bare minimum amount of work to it, knowing that algae would overgrow it, or did you have it installed to have a place or tranquil, a little piece of heaven on your property?

Having that little piece of heaven just bring a level of serenity to your property that you won’t be getting from simply installing the usual landscaping on it. If you want to keep a healthy pond, there are certain things that you will need to do, and one of them simply includes aerating.

Atmospheric diffusion is a very real thing that you won’t be getting in a man-made pond, while mother nature is able to provide the level of oxygen required under natural circumstances. An aeration system is just one of those things that are needed to ensure that an optimal amount of oxygen is provided.

Without the right oxygen levels, resulting from stale water, there will be consequences that you don’t want to have to deal with, that include severe algae blooms, unpleasant odors and a higher difficulty keeping fish alive, too.

Aeration can additionally be introduced in a couple of different ways, including with the inclusion of a water fountain.

What is the best way to aerate a pond?

If you’ve been looking around, you have probably noticed that your various choices are pretty broad when it comes to getting a pond air pump, whether you choose to go solar or not.

Of course, if you live in an area that doesn’t get a lot of sun, you can naturally rule that option out as it’s really the best option to keep the pump going at all times in order to avoid stale water for extended periods of time. When you have a pond, you will also need a device that is significantly bigger than what you would have needed for a simple fish tank.

How much aeration does a pond need?

How much is really the right amount, is a question you probably find yourself asking, not just when you’re looking to figure out what will create the ideal conditions for your outdoor adventures but also for your various other projects and endeavors you may be running into in life, and this project of yours is no different.

To find out just how big of a pump you will need, you will need to find out how big the area is in acres, which is done easily by multiplying the length by the width, both in feet, which will give you the square footage of the area, which you will then have to turn into acres by dividing by 43,560.

When you have calculated the acres of surface, that is when you’ll know just how much aeration you need as you’ll need at least 1.5 HP aerator per surface acre as 3.2 lbs of oxygen is produced per hour for every horsepower that the machine has, and you will want 325,900 gallons of water to be displaced at least every 2 days for every acre of surface that your pond has. If you know that the lake is prone to having issues with algae in general, you will additionally need to increase the amount of horse power of an aerator to accommodate.

Our recommendation is that you get one aerator per acre of surface area with at least 1-1.5 HP in order to get the water quality that you’re looking for. If you are already seeing issues with algae, that should be addressed prior to starting the aeration of the pond. This can either be done chemically, or you can physically remove the existing build up, and will help get the issue of algae under control a lot faster, too.

Can you aerate a pond too much?

While it is possible to aerate a pond too much, you will need some serious amount of horse power in order to make it happen. Overly turpid water may be an indication that you are aerating too much, but do remember that you still want to actually move water to the surface every single day. Too much aeration leads to turpid water, whereas too little won’t provide adequate protection against algae.

Do pond pumps need to run continuously?

The whole intention of the action is to ensure you are not having water quality issues that can lead to some of the downsides of not aerating, and there are a lot of instances where you would typically be required to have the pump run continuously to otherwise avoid the issue of algae.

If you continue to see problems with algae, chances are you are not aerating it sufficiently.

Are pond pumps expensive to run?

Pond pumps are generally not expensive to run, and can be as little as $35 per month. The cost of running the pump will depend on a bunch of different factors, including the size of the surface area you are dealing with, the depth, as well as other factors, like whether or not other circumstances are causing the issue of excessive algae growth.

While there are other very established plasma cutter manufacturers like Hobart and their AirForce 27i, many people are also very happy when they go choosing Everlast to satisfy their needs.

Everlast is also known for having a lot of great assistance should you ever encounter any problems with one of the plasma cutters they have made.

The great thing is that these come with an extensive 5-year warranty, not just on their plasma cutters but also on their welding equipment. If that doesn’t say something about how much they believe in their products, we’re not sure what does!

While other manufacturers may be cheaper than these machines, you don’t have the same protection if your machine suddenly breaks down as you do with this brand. So the question is: Do you want the cheapest option or do you want something that you know is going to last you a long time?

Lincoln

Lincoln Electric makes great plasma cutters, and all the ones we have available for sale on this site have been listed here to easily give you an overlook, make sure that you’re getting exactly the model that you want that best serves your needs, since they come at different price points.

Looking for something that cuts a clean 1/2 inch cut? This is the model, although it can cut as much as a 3/4 inch severance cut also.

Consumables

Consumables for a plasma cutter can be a large part of the ongoing expenses you’re having with your machine, if you choose a cheap machine like the LTP5000D. Where you will see your money going is towards cutting tips and electrodes.

If you haven’t yet bought your plasma cutter, it can be a good idea to not just consider the price of the machine, but also how quickly the model you’re considering will go through the consumables.

It is very likely that you may end up damaging the tip if you’re just starting out and don’t have the technique right yet. Secondly, an electrode that is way past its prime can have an effect on how much work you’re managing to get done as it will significantly slow down your cutting. When you’re wanting to not just make beautiful cuts, but also do so in a timely manner, you will end up having to make sure your consumables are also doing what they’re supposed to.

There are also other consumables to keep in mind if you don’t have a portable plasma cutter but rather a CNC. Some of these, it can even be hard to notice that they have deteriorated over time and they include the nozzle, the swirl ring, the retaining cap and the shield. Make sure that you keep an eye out for these parts so as to get better cuts in the future!

ESAB and their Thermal Dynamics line were the first to invent the modern plasma electrode, as well as creating incredible performance in a machine, while still making it light-weight and portable. Everything you could possibly want when you have very extensive metal cutting needs. Looking for some incredible power per pound that you simply won’t find with a cheap manufactured product? Here’s the power to rise above and beyond.

While these machines may seem pricey at first, there are so much savings for you to get from their incredible performance. Compared to a Hypertherm HPR XD, using O2, for mild steel with a 1 inch plate, while you’re able to cut 1,000 feet every 8 hours, at an energy cost of $0.07 per kWh, and gas cost of $5 per 100 ft3, they’re calculating that you may save an $4,500 every single year, with lower downtime.

This is unprecedented quality in a plasma cutter, for the serious pro.

Portable Options

If you’re always on the move, getting a portable plasma cutter is the right move for you. Having a light-weight, hand-held machine just allows you to get more done than having something massive that is just a pain to deal with.

Since you came to this page specifically looking for a portable option, you may also be interested in checking out our comparison chart. It allows you to easily say “okay, this is how much I want it to weigh at the very most, and these are the dimensions I don’t want it to be bigger than.” That saves you a bunch of trouble if you know that you are either mainly comfortable carrying a certain amount, or if you know that you want your plasma cutter to be fitting in a specific space on your truck, where there is just a limited amount of space.

A lot of people are extremely happy with the Hypertherm Powermax 45, which stands at 36 lbs, but the Powermax 30 is an even lighter option at 21.4 lbs. Then it very much comes down to your personal preferences, or if you have some types of metal, or thicknesses that you know you will be dealing with a lot.

There are also a bunch of both HobartEverlastThermal Dynamics and Miller Electric models that the pros are using out there. From Miller Electric, you will find that the Spectrum 625 X-TREME is a strong contender at 21 lbs.

Pilot Arc

There are many different users across the internet that will absolutely swear that getting a plasma cutter with a pilot arc is a necessity – that is why we have listed all the models we have for sale on this page.

You can find a variety of models with this feature like the Lotos models (LTP5000D, for instance), while it is a feature that will be significantly more normal for higher end machines. The Lotos model we mentioned, however, is a good cheap option to consider if you’re a DIY wanting to work on different projects.

You should also know that you probably will not want to go back when you start using a plasma cutter with a pilot arc. That is how much we believe you will love the feature!

The Cut-50 is another option that has a pilot arc on the much cheaper end, but you should also know that you will not want to get that option unless your needs are extremely limited.

If you check the various communities online, you will probably come across more than a handful of people that have mentioned that they ended up being too cheap when they bought a plasma cutter, and now they’re just waiting for someone to buy it off of them.

Lotos

Are Lotos plasma cutters the best cheap options we have for sale here on this site? We think so, and we hope you’ll take the time to review the video where we’re showing you why we think so.

There’s a plasma cutter out there for everyone, and it’s not everyone that needs a shop grade piece of equipment because they are going to be using it every single day. While you’re not getting a machine that comes with the Hobart name, like the AirForce 27i, you’re getting a machine that will handle the absolutely vast amount of different projects you could throw at is your average DIY person.

Got some heavier projects in mind, or are you sure whether or not this will be enough for your various needs? We invite you to study the various specs provided. There are many different cheap versions out there, and even some that are cheaper than this, but if you’re looking for a plasma cutter with a budget under $500, the LTP5000D is the machine we’ll recommend, which is a great pilot arc model.

Among them are many various 110v or 120v plasma cutters, if that’s what you’re looking for, at the price that best fits your budget.

You can also find some with built in air compressors. We also have specific pages for both EverlastThermal Dynamics, Lincoln ElectricLotos, and other plasma cutter manufacturers for you to choose from.

Hypertherm

Hypertherm are some of the most popular plasma cutters that we have for sale here on the site, so we’re not all too surprised that that is the brand you’re considering going with!

Hobart AirForce 40i

The Hobart AirForce 40i plasma cutter is a really great plasma cutter from the renowned manufacturer, Hobart. In addition, it is also just one step above the AirForce 27i, that we also offer on this site for you.

At a 50% duty cycle, this is a strong machine able to cut 7/8 mild steel, and doing so a lot faster than with the use of oxy fuel, and without the headache of using oxy fuel which requires you to manage all the various settings.

It also has a fan that will only run as needed, which keeps your machine from getting excess dust and other things running through it, while being powered with 120 or 240 volt.

Make sure to watch our review of the machine to see what you can expect if this is the machine you decide to go with. At 21 pounds, it is not the most portable plasma cutter you can find, but it can run up to 40 amps and provide the necessary power to cut 5/8 clean, or sever 7/8 steel. These are the reasons why it’s a go-to choice for the person who cannot afford to have to deal with the issues of a cheap machine, and do some industrial work. The previous version was 31 lbs, so this marks a significant improvement with the new design.
