Great Product 08/08/2019 7:14:55 PM

works great, but you have to take small passes, or the over load switch will shut down,

I HAVE HAD THIS SANDER ABOUT 5 WEEKS AND IT HAS APROX 250 HOURS OF RUN TIME .
THIS MACHINE MAKES ME WONDER WHY I EVER BOUGHT A JET SANDER IN THE PAST.
I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT EVEN IF IT IS MADE IN CHINA

Big improvement over my other drum sander. 05/28/2019 12:29:44 PM

So far.... the advice of the tech agent is spot on. Our production has increased and the time of sanding has decreased. So far...SO good.

Great Sander 03/28/2019 1:48:03 AM

Sander works just as advertised. No problems with the transport table as other people have commented negatively on its tracking. Havent changed the paper yet but after building a table to hold it I'm in business.

I purchased the baby Drum Sander 4 weeks age Nov 29th and have been using it on Alder and Fir for cabinet door faces.
It came with 120 grit sandpaper already on the drum wooo very smooth and even on the surface.
The shipping has a lot to be desired first time total damage on the box and sander didn't take the unit. They place it on a full size pallet and don't strap it down second shipment damage to the box and the foam its placed on. Be VERY careful in checking the box and the sander before you sign for the unit. Customer service is five star and calling in damage five star service.
The shipping department called me what a surprise five star for shipping department. Over all I will use Grizzly many more time they know what customer service is all about!!
Thank you Grizzly employees!!!

baby equals baby power 03/02/2018 12:57:59 PM

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.

Wonderful Addition to my shop 01/21/2018 3:51:03 PM

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.

Good product but Under powered 08/04/2017 4:17:25 PM

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.

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!! 01/29/2017 1:28:23 PM

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!

Customer Review 01/01/2015 5:24:12 PM

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
sander.
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.
