Here is a how i built it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJgSxfqSDDk
WARNING! heat guns get very hot!! there is a definite fire danger because of the materials used in this project!! I used a bed caster wheel for the roller which is probably not the best material because of the direct heat. A piece of 1” steel round stock would be ideal. there is also a risk of the wood getting to hot during extended use. All that being said i have used it a lot without any issue but i am constantly checking making sure nothing get to hot.
I recently have a need for an edge bander because of an upcoming kitchen project. Looking around and looks like the cheapest bander you will find is about 400 buck (to much for me). I used materials I already had lying around the house and bought a 20 dollar heat gun. I am really surprised how will this works and it should make my kitchen project go much faster.
