Pick the sort of sort of belt you want to use. Drum Sanders have a variety of abrasive belts to take certain amounts of thickness and layers off the wood. Don't sand then boards too thin or they will break under pressure.

A drum sander is an ideal piece of equipment to sand your wooden deck, as it has a variety of abrasive belts. check for loose planks, jutting nails or screws and other objects before drum sanding. Then ensure that you use a pair of safety goggles before sanding your deck.

First follow with the grain in the deck boards. Secondly only use as coarse a sandpaper as you have to: 24-36 grit to level, 40-80 grit to remove finish.

Make sure all nail and Screws are sunk. Start with a 36 grit sand paper to remove old stain and paint. Whenn all paint/ Stain is removed, switch to a 100-200 grit to get a smooth finish.
