The last cutting board (still working on the video) I did made me long for a thickness sander. I’ve been wanting to build one for a while with the spare motor I have. I spent a few days prototyping out a motor lift system for a drum sander and here’s the video of the results.
I learned that I needed to use thicker rods, but otherwise the general idea will work.
I need to figure out a better mechanism to hold the ball bearings, and I need to figure out what I’m going to use to mount the sandpaper spindle to the motor.
Any suggestions would be appreciated and thanks for watching.
