I am the proud new owner of a treadle.
It works (warning: the words “kick a$$” are uttered in this video; if sensitive, protect appropriately). There is also loud music by Big Business.
It’s all cast iron, predrilled for a missing top. There’s a pulley wheel a little bit more narrow in diameter than the short axis of the future table top.
I’m looking for some suggestions about what to build. So far, I’ve come up with:
1) lathe- I’ve got one and I really don’t like turning that much
2) belt sander
3) disc sander
4) fine blade band saw-I’ve got a 1” resaw in my bandsaw, so this would be nice
5) the world’s first foot-operated drum sander? lol
any help appreciated.
