homemade thickness sander
« on: October 21, 2012, 10:42:03 PM »
I picked up a homemade thickness sander off CL today. From the pictures it looked well made and In person I was impressed. It is a wooden frame, it has a Dayton motor, and foot actuated casters to move it around, and a typical 18” wide drum. The only downside is it is manual feed. Since a new one is around $1200 I figured I could live with manual feed for $50.
Here is a commercial one.
