This is my 10” wood sander made out of scrap wood and a dryer motor.
I had a great fun building it.

Very cool, i use the square wheel grinder but something like this would be handy to have too.

Thats Great! I have some older Fine Woodworking magazines where they showed more homebuilt tools, and I love those.

I have a 230v 1/2 hp motor that I have been trying to figure out what to do with, but I think a 1/4 hp motor would be better for the disc sander.

Great build and thanks for the kick to the brain, I need to do something similar.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Uh Oh – what a brilliant idea! Old dryers can be had for very little. Are you getting good speed?

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Hi all, the idea is not mine. It was out there on the net in similar implementatios.

Yes it has a very high speed.

Have your say...
