I just picked up one of these a few weeks ago after years of lamenting the lack of one. I got mine used off CL for very cheap, but it was in immaculate condition. As others have said, a drum sander isn't a good way to thickness material (not what they're for), but I use mine to do the final leveling/removing snipe after the planer, and it works great.
