That's not a 'homemade' sander, it's 'shopbuilt'. Good scale, good looking design. Dang well finished, we like the blue, reminds one of a DSG?

ditto on the shopbuilt designation. BTW, I like the blue, almost anything is better than battle ship grey.

No plans built on the fly more fun that way. I always draw a print first but this project I just did it and I had a image in my head and started building it.

That is one beautiful machine! and built on the fly, you must be about to bust with pride. You should make a plate with the date your name and made in the USA on it.

Well give George a shout. You have the drawings and the pics so you have most of the article completed. Sit down and start writing up how you made the parts.

It's kinda like eating an elephant, one bite at a time.

BTW, when writing my first article I thought I'd never get finished.

That has inspired me, thanks.
I have a 33 yearold Craftsman 6x48.
It is marginal at best, I want a real one and can't afford a Vintage Milwaukee or Delta.
I really like the rollers, are those balance drillings in the ends?

You should build one and if I could help in any way let me know Yes to balance holes in the pully on top. You should have a drum from your old Craftsman 6x48 Could or would you want to use that one. My bottom pully I made. The top pully I bought for $90.00 from Delta,But I had to make the shaft. I bought the motor top pully and two bearings Everything else I made from raw material. Thank you Robert

Well today I started to design a guard for the belt here is a paper mock up. What do you think or do you have any idea or suggestion. My idea is to build a one pic guard and allow the paper to not hit the guard if it becomes out of tracking. So many people with this type of Belt Sander said the paper eats up there guards Will try to overcome that problem Also here is my link to the sander: Thank you Vernon:waving:
