I did a search and did not find much....I hope this is in the correct spot I got a mag that has instructions on how to make a drum sander that will take 24" stock. To make this unit I will have to spend about $100 for pullys and a motor, if my time is worth any thing it will be a wash. I can buy a 13" thickness plainer for $200, new. I know they each have a place and do there own thing. I have only so much money to spend, what do you think would be the best deal and which will I get the most use out of?
