Be careful Jim. If Greenpeace sees this, it might become federal regulation to attach these to our table saws :)

Here’s the “green” sander. I finally figured out how to upload an actual picture.With the snow and cold I have tooooo much time on my hands.

Have you thought about putting a clock dial on the eggbeater gear and using the handle to indicate the time. You would of course have to run it pretty slow. However, you would save a lot of electricity, so it would be environmentally sound. Have you patented this yet?

I sent my ideas to my patent attorney.He won’t return my calls.

I actually have that very sander! It is actually mounted upside down to a 2X4 in my shop and probably the most important pieces of equipment I have! LOL!
