    seems to sand alright ,it is under powered you got to watch how much you take off at a time I would recommend 1/4 turns. it might help to use 120 grit verses 80. if your not in a hurry it is perfect.


    so far this has been a great sander. it does a nice job. it took me a long time to decide which sander to get and am happy with my choice.

    Wonderful Addition to my shop 1/21/2018

    I added this because I needed more control than the Planer gives me. It will need some adjusting to get it just right and while the screws are a little difficult to get to, once it's adjusted, it works well. I tried dust collecting with my shop vac through the 2 1/2" dust port and it was not working well. Had to get a connector so that I could connect my 4" full size dust collector. This works a lot better. Comes with one roll of sandpaper and I bought two more rolls. Not sure they're needed as the 80 grit that comes with the machine does the job nicely. I now use this on almost every project and am glad I bought it.


    I have used this for sanding flooring it has made my work easier and reduced shop time while turning out a nicer product

    I love this drum sander. A bit slow on the feed but works great! 1/5/2018

    Good product but Under powered 8/4/2017

    This machine has a great design but the motor to drive the drum is way under powered and will bog out and stop if you try to take any kind of a pass on it. If you're trying to take stock down for example from 3/4" to 5/8" Plan on plenty of passes, Its a good finish machine but not equipt for a real job.

    Good basic sander that does what you need but don't try to drive it too hard 7/31/2017

    Excellent machine. It has save me hours of sanding time and makes the finished product smooth without the problems of oversanding and blemishes caused by an orbital or hand belt sander.


    I bought the 12 inch baby drum sander for a job sanding end grain cuts of white oak for a unique flooring project. I can't express how much fun I am having and how much of a workout I'm putting this tool through. Not a hint of trouble right out of the box. This is the "best tool for the money" I have in my shop.

    Perfect!! 1/29/2017

    I have had the Baby Drum Sander for about a month now and can't believe how much time it saves me. Paper change is as east as it gets and as far as quality goes, it's pretty perfect. My machine came with a broken side handle, from shipping carrier. I called Grizzly and told them, they didn't ask a thousand questions, just took my info and let me know it would be taken care of. The next day they called me and said a new handle was mailed out. I got It 2 days later. A-1 customer service.

    I now have a new Grizzly drill press and table saw....... I am a Grizzly fan!

    I just love my new Grizzly Drum Sander.👍 1/26/2017

    I wish that I had bought this great sander three years ago. What a great job it does. I love it!

    Customer Review 1/1/2015

    I run a small, home-based business making furniture in my garage. In providing a
    great product, I was spending hours upon hours with an orbital sander getting a
    smooth, ready to stain surface. My hands were going numb from the vibrations of
    the sander. In early February, 2010 I ordered a 12" Baby Drum Sander. The unit set
    up took no time at all. The sander has worked out beyond my expectations; words
    cannot begin to express how wonderful it is to use on a daily basis. What once was a
    major chore has turned into a pleasurable task. The finished surface of my furniture
    is stain-ready after a few minutes of using the sander now, vs. hours with an orbital
    I am completely satisfied with what I call my "time machine", as the Baby Drum
    Sander has saved me literally hours of sanding each day. I would recommend this
    unit to anyone who needs a small drum sander. Thank you for a great product; I will
    be buying more Grizzly tools in the future.
