I bought a new one so what to do with the old one…
Two pieces of 1/2” birch ply cut in to circles (30cm diameter), glued together and attached with bolts. A table made from scrap 3/4” birch ply. The only expense was a self adhesive Velcro circle to attach the sanding disks. The result..my new disk sander. Total cost £11.24
Works really well, although 80 grit is VERY aggressive and removes a lot of material very quickly
Most people are guessing right, the bandsaw was over 30 years old, the tyres were badly worn as were the blade guards resulting in poor cuts. The only thing working well was the motor.
