I’m currently experimenting with a horizontal drum sander design with my shopmith, but instead of using my tapered bearing. I’m making a plug to go in my tailstock which I’m going to put a bearing (ala a pillow bearing) and build a horizontal drum between that and the headstock. I’m thinking of making a housing that will making an “over the top” style sander, rather than a thickness sanders between that table and drum type. Like the sand flea. I think this will give me less chance of getting a kickback.

I’ll lte you know. It’s one of a hundred projects I’ve got going right now…. ;-)
