In the past I had this old Performax 22/44 sander set up on a Delta turret radial arm saw. I used the motor on the saw for a few years, but it wasn’t very satisfactory. I took the sander apart and haven’t used it in years but I’ve decided to get it going again.
I removed the carriage and turret from the Delta RAS (it’s a 9” and never had a guard so I never had any interest in using it for its intended purpose – still, it is very well made). I have a 2HP motor I’ll rig up to power it this time. I also have the conveyer unit.
Performax started out selling the original 22/44 as a radial arm saw attachment. This sander is made from that original Performax model. The conveyer was sold separately.
These days with used drum sanders not holding value particularly well, I would never mess with cobbling together such a setup… but, you know, I had the parts on hand.
