I made this disc sander from an old 12” Delta band saw, the three wheel type. all of the parts with the exception of the box and fence were parts from the band saw. Even the 4 star knobs on the side were part of the old saw.. It works great, runs at 1750 rpm and only took about 1 1/2 hours to make from start to finish..
I don’t have he fence adjustable for angled work, just set at a solid 90 degrees to the disc. I figured this was good use of an old tool that was not doing me any good just laying around… the box and fence were made of 3/4” cabinet grade plywood that I had left over from another project… Papa
