slausonm: @wolfsearcher OK, I didn't make the hardware or Pulleys or Motor. Pulleys
came from the local hardware store. Bearings came from VBX bearing, motor
was free, however I just bought a more powerful motor for version II that I
am currently building now.
Diego Hernan: Hi! great job! i was wondering about the RPM of the drum spinning during
the work, can u calculate it? Thanks!
221Dw: Do you still have the design files?
slausonm: Most of the material is high grade 3/4" plywood for all of the parts except
for the shaft of the drum and the hardware. The drum is made of layers of
plywood glued to a 3/4"diameter steel shaft. This is NOT a kit that I
purchased...I made everything.
slausonm: adhesive attachment of what?
slausonm: I do not have technical drawings of the sander parts. I have the solid
model drawings and the NC code that I wrote for my router to cut out the
parts. I need to make a few changes so that it will accomodate a larger
variety of motors and a different bolt pattern on the flange bearing. I
would consider cutting out the side panels for you and the knobs. All the
other parts are straight cuts or circle cuts for the drum.
slausonm: Sorry I don't pay much attention to my youtube videos. The adhesive I
assume you mean is how the steel shaft is glued to the plywood discs. I
ground some flat spots on the shaft, applied glue to the plywood discs and
slid them onto the shaft.Once dry, I machined the whole assembly in my
Fernando Omar Píccolo: Muy bueno, te felicito.
Reverend D: Most excellent, be great for top caps on chambered guitars and the
chambered piece to ensure the top is glued on a flat surface. Very good
idea, nice execution! Thanks for sharing!
slausonm: It has been a while since I looked at my video and comments. The machine
runs very well. It is no high speed production machine but it works and was
cost effective to build.
wolfsearcher: hello just wondering where you got the pulley from thanks tom
bedofrazorsqwerty: Aye. Thanks. I actually got to work on mine last weekend. Waiting for the
sandpaper roll to come in right now. It's trued and ready to go though. I
opted to make a 5" diameter drum by laminating hard maple together. The
space for the shaft was routed out with a 1/2" bit, so half of the hole on
each middle lam. Made my dust hood accurately and, top off, used a straight
router bit to turn it round. Made sense to me at the time, routing for
truss rods being the inspiration there. :)
clockguy2: It doesn't hurt to have a cabinet shop to build it in. Good Job on your
build. Looks like some of the homemade shop equipment we had in our old
cabinet shop. Simple, yet very practical and put together well.
slausonm: The drum is made from 5" diameter plywood discs that were cut from the same
material the sides were made of. I glued them to a 3/4" diameter shaft that
I had in the scrap bin then turned the assembly on my metal lathe to true
trolllmiguel: Where you buy the materials, (drum etc)
k morgan: I would like to make two of these, Would you have plans or be willing to
make the parts needed on the cnc. I would pay for plans or parts. Love the
sander and would love to make two.
bedofrazorsqwerty: Can I see a close up of the adhesive attachment?
zoonogoto: very nice im in the process of making one myself ive just got a question
about the drum how is it connected to the shaft i read a lot about gluing
the discs on the shaft with epoxy is that enough to stop the drum from
slipping on the shaft great video thanks ,,chris
zzpank33r: Hi. I'd like to know what's the drum made of... Can you give me exact
measures of the table? I want to build one. and i'd like to copy yours,
