    Good tip on paper installation. Sadly my Performax 16/32 mostly sits in my shop. I can’t get it to stop burning the wood. I change out the paper only to damage the next one. I end up with burn streaks in the roll. Most of my wood is either oak or maple. Never soft woods. I have played with the speed with no success. Would like a tip on what speed to run at. I barely have it hitting the wood trying to minimize the burning. Rather sorry I spent the money on a drum sander.
