As you can see by some of my previous projects, I build heirloom, custom made fly fishing landing nets out of exotic woods of the world. go to http://www.mo-nets.com to see more recent ones. One challenge I had was the initial sand down to take off the excess glue and get an even thickness. A planer would tear it up so I set to build a thickness sander. I did some research online and found Jim Murphy’s project. This is a fantastically built and documented thickness sander:
Jim did an amazing job on his sander with a wonderful raising/lowering mechanism idea that really appealed to me so I decided to make one like his. I just recently put the sandpaper on the other day and it works like a charm.
Thanks for looking!
