Just wondering if anyone has successfully made a Home-made Shopsmith Horizontal Drum Sander. I want to make one using a Block bearing set into the lath endstock & the chock to hold the drum. I figure I can do this is I don’t get too crazy with the size of the drum. 18” maybe? Plus I’m not going to try for a thickness style sander (I think). I think a surface sander is more on line with my skill set.
Thought I’d ask if anyone else has attempt this before I did it. I’m TERRIBLE at winging it. I messed up simple picture frames the other day for crying out loud! ack!
Please give me a holler if you’ve attempted anything like this.
