  • Sander 6x48 Test run

    Tried out the 6x48 belt today few bugs to work out but not bad. Hope to get it all fixed in a week or two. Really more work than I first thought. But the end is close.


    Please let me know what you think or any ideals that may be helpful

      That's looking really good, I'm sure you've put alot of time into, especially the fine details as you get closer to completion. What sort of bugs do you need to work out?

            Looks great. I'm sure it will end up being better than anything you could buy off the shelf now days. I have quite a few home made tools in my collection and they perform better than anything I could buy because I built them to my needs and not a generalization of the market a big corp could hope to capture.

            The best feature of your sander though is........ IT'S NOT MADE IN CHINA!!!!

            Keep us posted when it's completed and keep up the good work!!!

                          http://www.mcmaster.com/#catalog/116/2651/=7mduag

                          I run the 40 grit on my 12" disc (47125 - A32) these babies last a long time. They round corners on 1/2" plate and de-burs with the best of them.. The adhesive comes off with the disc which makes change out easy..

                          They do fast manicures as well..
