There are several routers at a used tool business. They are large and heavy duty. Can I turn one of these into a drum sander?

The speed of a router motor would be far too fast for a drum sander. A typical router will produce speeds of greater than 20,000 rpm. A typical drum sander is more like 1500 to 2000 rpm.
