I was wondering if there is a way to attach a sanding disc to my lathe…

My idea was get the drill chuck attachment and put one of the circular sanding disc that will attach to a drill. Has anyone done this and will it work?

For sanding … or sharpening?

I’m not sure what you would hope to accomplish.

It would be for sanding, like a table top disc sander almost.

Disc sanders can be pretty cheap, especially if you watch your local CraigsList.

You could make something using a face plate and a piece of MDF.

Disc and drum sanding on the lathe is very common. You can either buy a sanding disc or there are 2 ways to make your own. 1) attach a faceplate to wood, turn round and true the face, attach sandpaper. 2) Buy a tap and thread the wood directly so that you don’t tie up a faceplate.
