Not too long ago, I got a low cost entry level lathe. It’s a simple machine just right for a beginner and yet with some easy to make attachments it expands its capability. I have here a thickness and disk sanders.
For the thickness sander I used a 14×3.25 inch pvc pipe attached to faceplate and an adjustable platform that sets up and comes off very easily. Maximum sanding width is 12 in. while the maximum wood thickness is 2.5 inches.
The 12×3/4 in. plywood disk is screwed to the faceplate. Similarly the platform comes on and off very easily.
