O!!! This is killing me!!!
I want to build your model tractor but just moving in to the new house so will be awhile before I can get back to building.

I’m having model builders withdrawal symptoms. :-{
The build up of glue on my finger tips is all most gone.
My sinuses have cleared up from all the saw dust.
I can open my eyes completely now that the super glue has wore off.
My wife’s even ready for the new shop so I’m not walking around in circles with no thing I want to do.

PS Great blog Dutchy !!!

Why is this engine the driving force in your model?

Duthy, As I may have mentioned before, amongst your multi-talents, your disc sanding skill are something to behold. I bow my head to your sanding skills… after picking up my fingernails.

Crowie: Thanks for your comment.

Bruce4: Do you need a nurse? Success with your new home and…..shop.

Brian: Thanks.

Alex: The engine is the driving force because I do not want to push my models.
And now about sanding. I never have sanded and hope I will never do is sanding my fingers. I will tell you something which you can’t see on a picture. I can change the speed of the big disk (50cm) (24”). The motor is 750 RPM and using pullys the speed of the disk is by 50 Hz in the lowest “gear” 375 RPM. With an inverter I can change the Hz even to zerro Still at verry low speed there is power enough to sand. The benefit is that when sanding at this verry low speeds injuries are almost excluded. Without any problem you can put your fingers against the slowly spinning disk. One risk is to forget to reduce the speed. Sometimes I’m sanding on this disk without turning the power on. A small turn on the disk will let him spin and make sanding possible.
