These are a couple of sanding drums I was asked to turn for an old shoemaker’s machine. They are maple inner cores with a taper to match the flange on the machine spindle. The flange closes the drum and tightens the sandpaper on the drum. I did not have thick enough sandpaper to try them out so I hope they work okay!! The sample provided was .070 thick!!
They are covered with 1/4” thick rubber that is epoxied onto the the surface.
I started them on my wood lathe and then put the chuck on the Southbend lathe to cut the detailed dimensions needed. That Grizzly chuck is handy for that because all you have to do is exchange the rear bushing in the chuck and it holds the piece concentric onto the other lathe.
Happy Easter everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
