« Part 51: Build your own Rockwell Blade Runer style bench top jig saw! Part 52 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 53: Super-duper-yooper-pooper table saw crosscut sled- Part 1 of 2 »

I’ve built my share of homemade tools, including five different drum sanders. But this one is by far my favorite! It’s a two stage unit, which means you can use BOTH the top and the bottom of the drum. Pass flat stock through like a regular drum sander (using the hand crank feed belt) OR sand work pieces on top of the drum like a “Sand Flea” V-Drum sander.

It’s all in the video, with some tongue-in-cheek humor and more, so enjoy!

(I can't get the video to embed on LumberJocks, so please watch it here)

Stumpy, You have outdone yourself yet again. I am amazed at all the shop made tools you dream up. Keep up the good work. And have a cold one…..you earned it this time.

Stumpy, I don’t know if you realized it but in options on youtube you’ve got to check use old style embed code… or something like that. Then it works unless you did that and found another issue.

Nice design, Stumpy. If you put a fence on the flea sander, you could use it as a crude jointer. I’m putting this one on my To Do list.

Very inventive!

You know, if you set up another pulley/belt system, you could eliminate the hand crank.
