I know it’s not a typical wood project, but it’s a very useful wood belt sander, don’t you think?

detailed blog about how I made it here:

Very nice! I made a simple 2-wheel sander for metal a while back. It’s amazing how useful they are.

I like your design. Will be interested in how the wheels hold up. I’ve been wanting to build a 2×72 belt grinder but the cost of wheels have been holding me back from building one. Nice build.

Very nice. Where do you purchase your belts? I have gotten some from a (un-named source). After 20-25 go-a-rounds they come appart at rhe seam. Talk about a wake up call. Please let me know.

That looks like a solid build (must weigh a ton 8^)!

Is that controller next to the base (first picture) part of the sander? Variable speed? CNC? 8^)

Great job, I’ve wanted one for ages to grind knives and tools.

Very nice build! Can we get a close-up and some details about your tracking mechanism? I’d love to have one of these in my shop!
