The drum sander is the new option to a power planer for making stock of consistent thickness. With four models now on the market for less than $1,000, the time has come to take a close look at these smooth operators that can sand even wide panels flat and fine.

6" jointers battle for the top spot.

Big and powerful, an 8" jointer may be just the ticket for your shop. Our cutterhead-to-cutterhead test of eight beefy machines compares the performance of straight knives and spiral-style cutters.

These machines, priced from $400 to $800, tackle a range of sanding tasks with both power and finesse. And though they look similar, we found big performance differences among the tested models.

We tested eight cyclone dust-collectors to separate hype from reality.
