Good job. I have one and love it. An abrasive jointer. Nice and quiet too.

I like how you enclosed the motor. Very clever. A fence option for 90 degree stuff is a nice addition too.

Welcome to LJs,

Is this your own design or did you buy as a kit? Well done I need one of these.

Nice work, Just finished mine as well. Like the way you closed up the motor.

Thanks for the comments and the suggestions…. started thinking about how to add a fence last night and found info in a couple of places so that will be the next addition. I am also going to add some dust collection as the tray fills up quickly. The kit was from Stockroom supply, found the motor on the net and the box was a modified plan i found. Enclosing it cuts down on the noise and keeps all those moving parts out of reach. This allows me take a small amount of material off and smooth work quickly. I am still searching for a sandpaper that does not load up quickly (currently using Klingspoor) as it tends to add up quickly.

Hey Troy,

I use Klingspoor and found it to be quite nice for the price. Maybe if you get a bit of dust extraction going it will help with some of your loading problem. (?)

Have been looking at these for about a year and half. I like this setup! It’s going to favorites for when I finally get to that project.
Thanks, BTKS

I have been working on a large drum sander for a year and it’s half built. Now I think I might have to tear it all apart and build one of these instead. Thanks alot!
