Well, Here is another project that is currently underway. I’m building a Thickness Sander. I got the Plans from Shopnotes Issue 86. I however made some changes to those plans. First of all I’m powering it from a 1.5 HP 110V motor. I didn’t like the idea of setup on the table saw every time I needed to use it. Second I’m making mine with an Auto Feed. I’m using an Electric Motor from a Ford Contour Door Window System. To power it I’m using a Computers Power Supply, It has the 12 volts and the amps that I need to run that motor. Third,I also Made it allot wider. Mine is 25” wide (the Drum) to accept panels 24” wide. I also Made it on a roll away cart for easy storage.
I’ll post more pictures as they come available. Right now I’m grounded from my shop due to an Injury sustained last October. I had surgery to fix a very torn shoulder.
Hope you like this as much as I do.
