I agree with the rest of the negative. Not a flush trim sander as advertised. Easy fix. Give is 2-3 bearing to go smaller gradually with finer grits. Try doing a neck blank with this. Thought I’d try this for highly expensive roasted maple to avoid the too common tear out. The hand sanding required to get the blank to exact size would take the fretboard is glued and trimmed to the blank. I can do it faster with a spindle sander. Defeated the purpose of why I wanted to try it. Only ok for body shaping as it can be less exact.

I purchased #5663, the 2" x 3" sander. The bearing on the sander is about 1/32" over sized, as noted by some other reviewers. (I failed to see that before ordering) I contacted tech support and was told that it was engineered that way to allow for sanding out of the scratches left by the 50 grit, and offered for me to return it if I wasn't satisfied.

After using it a few times, I can say the unit does perform as described. I will probably make a few new bearings with closer tolerances to use with the finer grit sleeves which should reduce hand-sanding .

I am satisfied with the sander, will continue to use it, and can recommend it with the above noted caveat. Stewmac should note the tolerances in the product description, in my opinion, to disclose that it is not a truly flush trim sander . . . it's more of a "flush-ish" trim sander.

Drum works great. However, the template collar is not flush with drum in some areas....
Like most tools, the operator should inspect and tweak, before the desired use. Little off the sides and the unit followed my template perfectly.

I haven't had a chance to try this out. However, Stew-mac keeps hounding me for a review. Maybe if they wouldn't be in such a hurry, next time I could tell you more.

Not Sure Yet

I had purchased this because I had bought from this company their 2" x 3" sanding drums. They did not fit my current drum. I have not used this yet but I tried to remove the drum that was supplied with it and could not. So, when this drum needs replacement I will have to destroy it to get it off and not sure if I will get a new on on.

Response from StewMac


The easiest way to remove the sanding sleeve from this drum is to take off the top hardware after removing the nut. This should loosen up the barrell enough to slip the sleeve off with some force. - Spencer, Customer Support

Product is ok. Not precise like a router template bit, but also no tearout worries. Leaves the part about 1/32" oversize, which can be a LOT of time hand sanding to finish size. Be sure to have a sanding belt cleaning stick on hand as well.

These work perfect for sanding flush to templates if you dislike the thought of using a router table. i would definitely recommend these for shaping guitar necks. obviously it takes a lot longer than a router but it is better than destroying a piece of wood or worse a finger. great product !!
