This is a link to a Canadian website with plans for sale.
I plan to start building this as soon as I finish my workbench which is about 90% done. I’m thinking I’ll put a 1 hp or a 1-1/2 hp motor on mine and run it at about 2000sfpm. If anybody out there has any suggestions or comments I would love to hear them, especially if you know of a problem with this design or think I am crazy or something. Sometimes I know I get so wrapped up in things like this I don’t see problems that are obvious to someone else.
I would like to know if any other LJs have seen or heard about this, or built anything similar. Being an engineer this project really gets me going because it was so obviously well thought out and designed. The guy who designed and built it is a pretty impressive woodworker as well as designer.
Now if I could just find a similar quality homemade drum sander i could fill out my shop.
