Topic tags/keywords: question resource planer sander

How about attaching a sanding belt onto the drum of a planer! Would it be too fast and just burn the wood or do you think it would work? It would be easy enough to change over my Ridgid after planning some wood to run it back through with sand paper on the drum.

I’m thinking a planer would be way to fast and like you say burn the wood.

Mine spins at something like 8,000 rpm, seems a bit fast for sanding wood.

Don’t know, never tried it but I’m thinking that yes the speed will be a issue unless you move fast enough over it :)

Like the others, I think it will turn too fast.

Even in that ad, there is mention of a reduction pulley. Too fast, would need to slow it down, otherwise I can’t see why it wouldn’t work.

you might be able to use a electonic speed controller to adjust the speeds if universal motor.

If you have a wood lathe, it makes a nice thickness sander if you make a sanding drum to turn between centers and a wedge-shaped jig bolted to the lathe bed that, moved in or out, provided a thickness adjustment.

@ the speed of a planer I wonder if the the sandpaper lift from the drum and explode.

That will be a lot of centrifugal force.

Thank You all for your input. I figured it would be too fast, but just wanted other opinions. It’s too late for me to invest into a real sander so I will just keep on going the way I always have. LOL
