Drum sander design

03-02-2015 05:59 PM by Bob506 | 1 comment »

I am designing a drum sander much like the ones I have viewed here with a couple twists. First thing I am wondering is how would a drum made of pvc pipe with end plates and 3 to 5 internal discs hold up? I will experiment with this since I have a lathe and can turn the discs. Second item I am thinking is to use a treadmill for a powerfeed system. The belt will be around half the width of the drum capacity. I again don’t know how this will work with wider material but, If I can, and have, find a treadmill for 50 or under, I’ll give it a shot. Anyone have experimented along these ideas yet? I am open to suggestions any insight anyone might want to share.. Bob.
