Finally my disk sander is completed and ready to use. That’s a great tool. All I needed was scraps, a 1/4 HP electric motor (1725 rpm), a pulley, an electrical box, a switch and an electric cord (plus skills and imagination, of course!).
Respecting the direction of the rotation (here counter-clockwise) is important at a disk sander, reason why I used a permanent marker to indicate where the disk spins upwards, part that must not be used.
Make your own, you certainly won’t regret. More photos and all details are available on my blog.
