Have used this for a number of years now and it has served me well. I've put more images on my website to help with the design, but you will need to size the basic structure for the motor you have and the disc size. The motor is 300W and if you use it hard it is still possible to stall it with just a 6" disc. I've also added a link to a supplier of the sticky backed discs in the UK
    Nice job [email protected] but my design is intended for metal working. I doubt it would work very well with wood.

    Hi David,
    You don't say what colour the bolts have to be (much tongue in cheek).
    Regards,

    Yeah, just plain old zinc-chromate color would be fine.
