This maker of drum and belt sanders was from about 1981 until 1988 and beyond, but is no longer in business. Owner Bob Kuster now has a successful business making art glass.

The Dynastar line of drum sander kits contained the mechanical parts. The buyer provided a wooden frame and motor.

A former designer from Kuster reports that the Grizzly 24" drum sander is an exact copy of the Ultrasand. If you are looking for parts for a 24" Ultrasand, perhaps Grizzly parts will fit.
