king billy pine question

Post by old_picker » Wed Oct 28, 2020 6:22 pm

Gday all
Have some 2 nice 1.2m 200 x 50's of KB I bought 10 years ago at Strahan - thought I might split some down for tops but before I do.
Will it load up the belt in a drum sander quick and lively?

My experience with it is no, sands just as Spruce does, doesn't clog up your drum sander..

Cheers

G'day Old Picker,
I thicknessesed a King Billy top through my carbatec drum sander recently and had no problem using 100 grit paper in the machine.
Cheers
