I needed a disc sander for one of my projects, I don’t have the space for one and I like to make things if I can so I came up with this lathe driven one, inspired by a few fellow lumberjocks projects!
I made a quick and dirty model on Sketchup first and used that as a guide. All materials are offcuts from other projects. The only money I spent was on the sanding discs.
It works really well. I have yet to add a dust extraction port in the base. Once its done I’ll post that up.
I also made a sander thicknesser, but I dismantled it with a better design in mind, that’ll be on here soon too.
