One of the most difficult make. I cut the individual laminations and glued them together. It proved very difficult to cut two pieces that matched. What I wound up doing was cutting a bunch of laminations and matching the pieces as close as possible. Still after glue up there was lots of sanding. If I didn’t have an assortment of sanders I would never have finished these. Power sanders only get you close. There was still a lot of sanding and filing to do.

Neat little truck.

The belt sander helps a lot. Mine is just left vertical with the stop rigid at 90 degrees.

I can’t remember the last time I had my belt sander set for anything else. Still the machines only get the grunt work done. I still need to hand sand.
