Sand Flee 9'' Portable Drum Sander SF-0904, with Optional Fence

Updated on April 6, 2010

A diffrent kind of drum sanding tool for woodworking

I couldn’t believe my eyes, what a great idea! This is exactly what woodworkers everywhere have needed. What’s all the excitement about you ask? Well I’ll tell you. I just discovered a new tool and if you are a woodworker you know that there is not much that is more exciting than a new tool.

The Sandflee 9” portable drum sander is the coolest thing since sliced bread! Instead of a sanding drum running overhead on a work piece the drum is set in a table. This opens up all sorts of possibilities for working wood. First of all it’s safer than overhead drum sanders and more user friendly than a belt sander. Being stationary it gives better control than random orbit or palm sanders. It has a micro-adjustment so it would be great for delicate work like marquetry. The dust port and down draft system traps dirt and dust. I just thought it was such a great idea I wanted to share it with outer wood workers. It is available at major tool suppliers and is reasonably priced compared to overhead drum sanders. The only down side I see is It is only 9” wide which effectively allows you to machine an 18” surface. Not too bad but I wish it was wider. Any way I can’t wait to get mine.

Update! after further investigation I found they make an 18" model. Fantastic!

      I own the 18". Not terrific. The motor bogs down real bad halfway thru the work. Notice all the demos are down with tiny little peices?

      RJR is basically a one man circus. And boy have I been getting the run around trying to get a working motor for my machine thats under warranty. Lots of gums flapping but action? No sir.

      Better off to get the kit version of this from the Canadian inventor. Its much cheaper and you have to get your own motor - which is the same situation I'm now in only I paid the premium price - for nothing.
