Still working on the drum sander table. Coming along well, though I’ve broken a few taps and bits requiring me to scrap a couple of parts.
So the table is two pieces of 3/4” MDF laminated together. I glued T-nuts into the sides to hold the side bars.
Here is the motor hooked up to to the pulley. This is before I found the right sized bushing to fit on the motor shaft so it looks a little crooked. I bought a new bushing from McMaster Carr that fits much better.
I may work on the frame this weekend. I haven’t decided on the frame design yet. I’m trying to make sure that whatever I choose, it’s not too difficult to change the belt or make adjustments.
-- I wish wood grew on trees so that this was a cheaper hobby.
