Looks great. I would keep thinking about adding a power feed though. Makes it a lot more fun to use.

Well the little I have used it in testing it works really well. The DC leaves very little dust on the front or back side of the conveyor belt.

Pretty sweet charger! Thats something every shop should have. How does what it cost to build compare to a similar store bought sander?

I have invested $288. in it. Store bought ones this size run well over $1000.00

I think I’d like to know where you got the plans or if you will give up the planx.
