Just thought I would update this. I ended up parting out pretty much everything so all the parts are gone.
In addition to woodworking, I love to tinker on mechanical things. So when I find a project that mixes the two I’m in hog heaven. I’ve been wanting a drum sander for a while, but I don’t really need it, so I’ve just been to cheap to actually buy one. I was talking to my Dad about wanting to maybe build one and he found a nice steel 4” diameter roller on a 1 1/2” precision ground steel shaft at some estate sale he went to. So that has moved me from just talking about it to actually building a DIY drum sander. After looking at a lot of plans online, the one part of all the plans that seemed to need the most tweaking was the raise/lower mechanism for the drum or table. So after thinking it over and given my normal tendency to over-engineer anything I do, I decided that if I had the lead screws and guides from a planer I could build a nice elevation mechanism.
So after hunting around a bit, I ended up finding a Delta 22-560 locally and I cannibalized it for the lead screws, guide rods, frame, etc. I have a bunch of parts left over and as I know some of these parts are difficult to find or simply really expensive as replacement parts, I figured I’d offer the spare parts up here.
All prices are plus exact shipping via method of your choice. Much Better deals if you want more than one part.
$85 Motor assembly complete with pulley and mounting screws, clean good condition. Motor runs smoothly, though I have not cut wood with it due to the cutterhead issues noted below.
$40 Complete feed roller gearbox, roller drive chains and dust cover with mounting screws for all. Good condition, no obvious slop or tooth damage.
$40 Infeed and outfeed roller pair with mounting blocks, sprockets, springs and mounting hardware. Rubber in good condition.
$40 Extension wings infeed and outfeed with mounting hardware and leveling screws. Wings have some wear to the black paint, but otherwise in good condition. I’ll also throw in the stainless base plate if you want it.
$40 Cutterhead with bearings, bearing cup and gear spindle. No blades, blade holders or screws. WARNING: It’s clear that something happened to the key because there is damage to the keyway. I’m pretty sure somebody tried to use the wrong key on this cutterhead because of the way the keyway is damaged. I do not think the keyway is too damaged to use with the correct key. I’ve attached a picture of the keyway I personally think it would be fine with knocking down the burr and the proper key, but I’m guessing that you could get a shop to mill a new keyway on the other side of the shaft for a lot less than a new cutterhead. (Or if you’re me, I would just rig up a jig and use an endmill in my drill press and take it slow, then flatten keyway sides with a dremel.)
I also have the small dust shroud that mounts on the carriage up next to the motor and the cutterhead lock lever. Both of these are inexpensive parts, so if you buy something else, I’ll throw in one of them free on a first come first served basis if you buy something else and need one of them.
