I purchased this kit at my local hardware store. When I tried to use the two largest sized drums with a drill press, I found that they were out of round - that is, they wobbled. The finish was unsatisfactory, so I returned the kit hoping to trade for another identical kit. I tested the new kit in the store and it had the same problem, but worse, so I just got a refund.

I use this set of drums with a Milwaukee angle drill, to clean up the inside of bandsaw boxes and to establish contours and round over edges. For the price they are tough to beat. Have been using them for at least three years maybe a bit longer and have no complaints. I found I can use the tubes from my Jet spindle sander, just cut em in half, saves having to buy differant sets of tubes. Get two usable tubes from one Jet tube.

I use this set almost every day and as I said have no complaints. This is a good buy and I recommend it.

The sanding drum kit is easy to use and easy to store, every thing in one place. It's not a precision grinder but for the price it's going to be hard to beat.

Actually I give this set 3.5 stars. I have used the larger diameter drums in my Delta 17-900 drill press with great success. I have also chucked the two smallest diameter drums into my hand drill and used them to aid in fitting new door lock/sets to old doors (enlarging the bore for the latch).

For all you fellow tool junkies out there, granted this isn't the nicest sanding drum attachment set on the market, but for the home hobbyist or a pro who only occasionally has the need, these will serve quite nicely. For 20 bucks you cannot go wrong here...

I've used this set for several years now and thought I'd share my thoughts. I came here today to verify the drum sizes so I can order some more sleeves and when I saw the reviews I thought I'd offer my input.

In short, don't buy it. Will it do the job - yes, most of the time, but not as well as it should. It's good enough that I haven't trashed it in the years I've had it but I don't really use it that heavily. It's bad enough that I would definitely recommended looking at another brand for your first purchase.

Everything everyone has said about the bulging issue is very true. It's not always a problem, but often enough that it's worth mentioning. The bigger problem for me is that several of the drums are next too impossible to get new sanding sleeves on to. I've ruined countless sleeves trying to get the suckers on there. I've take the arbors all the way out, tried to squeeze the drums to size, even put them in the freezer to try to shrink the rubber a bit to get the sleeve to fit. Obviously that's not what any of us wants. Once I am working on a project I need to be able to keep the momentum going and smoothly flow from one tool to the next and when I have to stop for 20 minutes or more just to try and change a sanding sleeve it's very frustrating.

Now that I'm writing this review I'm thinking I should probably just buy a new set instead of new sleeves. I just started selling some of my products through my own online store and expect to use it much more heavily so I may just junk it.

Bottom line - even if you only consider yourself an amateur woodworker or only expect to use it once or twice I'd highly reccomend spending your money on another product. We all know that cutting corners on tool expense is rarely worth it and this is a classic example of that.

Does exactly what I expected it to do - fits on my Delta drill press and gets the job done. Is it perfect? In a word: No. However, for most of your sanding needs it serves its purpose. My final analysis: a solid product at a fair price. A good value overall.

This kit is great for your drill press. It works fine for the occasional sanding job. Chuck in into the drill press and start sanding. It has a size for any job. A dedicated spindle sander would cost 20 times more and not work much better.

This is a great way to turn your drill press into a drum sander for those small pieces that need sanding. It comes with every size you will need in your home workshop.
