I make quite a few cutting boards and I needed a drum sander to make sanding more consistent and efficient. I had a HF belt sander I wasn’t happy with so I took the motor off of it and used it to make this flatsander. I made the drum myself from MDF and a 5/8” SS shaft. I added pillow block bearings, pulleys, and a link belt for the drive system. The table is a piece of countertop I paid $2 for at the Habitat ReStore.
Here are some images of the drum:
