I sold my previously made 40cm disc sander for 200$ and made new 30cm for only 30$, including old dish washing maschine motor and velcro sanding discs 2×80 and 1×100 grid. All other is from scraps. Angle gauge is from my bandsaw (I use it also on the router). Possibility to lean working plate up to 45 degree.
The cheapest 30cm disc sander on market here is 300$.
16mm chipboard plate is fixed with four 6mm screws and nuts to 75mm aluminium disc which was a part of the motor shaft (probably used as rubber belt driver). 1/6 HP, 1400 RPM – pretty enough – you can’t stop it with hands or piece of wood against disc sander.
