Is there a minimum required size of drum sander?

Is the 16" Jet too close to soundboard dimensions, for instance?

I have the 16" and it is just about OK - you need to make sure it is set up correctly.

If I was a bit richer I might go for one of these babies:

Oh wow. Might just go for it!

It's amazing how the internet fails to return search items like this.

Don't forget about the extraction - it is vital on these kind of machines

If you do don't forget to tell 'em I recommended them 🙂

Thanks- it says 2 1/2 " port... I got 100mm pipes and reducers.

Also note that specs say MINIMUM stock thickness is 1/4"... we ignoring that?

Strange the ports are not 100mm? I had another look and it looks like the 2 1/2" is a reducer so it could be fitted with a 100mm

(I feel this would be better for cooling and dust collection - but maybe I'm wrong - worth talking to them - why not give them a call?)

Yeh- if we are doing thinner pieces like for acoustic tops, back and sides etc then we put it on top of a piece of 6mm ( 1/4") MDF to raise it up.

Ok- I did it. YiKeS- The SD-174 is coming next week.

Holy shit it's some sexy looking machinery.

... I think need a 110V converter, right?

hmm- I'm finding it difficult to find something rated at the right current output. MOst things are up to 16A

>:(

The Baileigh manual states:

SD-174 Power 110V / 60hz / 21A

Main Motor 1.5hp (1.1kw)

 

Anyone have any suggestions for a suitable transformer?

Oh FFS...

Powered by a 220 volt 1-1/2 hp motor, the SD-174 can be run almost anywhere

I guess the clue was in the word 'almost'...

Sorry dude, but I was under the impression it just plugged in to a standard 240v socket like any other machine.

Maybe you should consider cancelling your order? - or at least ask them how you are supposed to use it 'almost anywhere'

It may well still do! My electric technician- who does all my syntheziser maintenance, thinks they have made a listing error- and probably sell a european version at 220V. I will ring them tomorrow and check.

Also, don't worry about the purchase of the damn thing. It has been so hard to find ANYTHING for months now, I was so grateful to you for knowing about it. I came here for guidance, but I've been researching for a couple of years already- time to put it all into action 🙂

The Jet model comes in near that price anyway, and bigger ones from Jet and Powermatic are 2.5K! I'm getting some VAT relief as well.

It's all good, and working towards an amazing workshop is a dream coming true. All I need now is a proper jointer, and it might be Baileigh again if this one works out!

"Almost there"

From Baileigh today:

"I can confirm for the UK it is 240V, the specification was showing the US version.

Sorry for any confusion."

Game on.

Just a thought, but it probably has the 2.5" port to increase the speed of the air flow where the dust is being generated to maximise the efficiency of collection.

Hehe fun times.

The good news is... it's 240V at 10amps so perfect for more than almost anywhere.

The bad news is... it came with an australian plug!

... and I need to upgrade my shop extractor to 750cfm airflow.
