Making some plywood angels for an upcoming christmas fair, I realized I needed a way of sanding in some very tight spots on the wings.
I figured that a 1” belt sander would do the job.
Not having this machine, and seeing a need for it, justified a couple of nights i the shop making one.
Frame is 3/4” plywood, wheels are also plywood with some small bearings that I had laying around.
The drive is an old fixed speed drill, directly conected to the pulley.
The sanding belt is a 1” cutoff of a 4” wide belt aprox 30” long.
Tension and belt alignment is on the oak block on the top roller.
There is a dust port under the table.
All ply is baltic birch plywood
