So weird, I was just looking at the plans for this not 2 hours ago.

Nice work. It kind of has an old-timey look to it with the screws and everything. Off to check out the blog post.

Looking good.
I’m thinking of built one in combination with a disc sander and make the belt sander able to pivot to horizontal.

Great build and great blog Thanks for sharing. I have a lot of admiration for a person that has the talent and patience to build their own power tools.
