I didn’t make Jake’s but I did make one similar to his.

^Yep, me too. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/252242

They are not that hard to build if you have a knack for adapting and want a little challenge.

I haven’t made one yet, but it is one my to do list for the next homemade tool.

Has anyone made Stumpy Nubs dual-stage drum/V sander from his plans? If so, how does it work?

i had been gathering materials to make one when someone dropped theirs off at a ReStore… a combo Flatmaster/Thicknesser that needed a few tweaks and could still use a paint job, but worth taking home on the subway

it was originally listed on the local Kijiji for$150, but i’d just bought a small jointer and was out of funds

amazingly, it showed up a few weeks later again on Kijiji, but was now being sold by the ReStore…. for $80

under the thicknessing table were extra hook and loop rolls of 60-150 grit sandpaper and a crepe rubber stick, which i only noticed about a week later

definitely a $core, and has been very handy
