    My Disk Sander built

    Hi everybody.

    At last I have finished my disk sander.
    I've been wanting for a big one for a long time (I have a little 150mm diameter one, way too small), I had everything to do one but never took the time to do it.
    I must admit it took more time than I expected ...

    It is a model entirely inspired by John Heisz's one. I looked for several ideas in the database, but I felt John's design was very clever, especially for the table pivot system.
    So I did exactly like him.

    Here it is :













    I have an article showing in details how it is built :

    Cheers !

    Good build. Simplistic in nature but well built, finished well and can see the benefits it will provide.
    I'm sure many proud hours were involved.

    Hello Christophe;
    I am new to this group so I'm unfamiliar to how things work. I was wondering if you had plans available for building this sander. You have some serious engineering skills! I think that you did some very nice work on this sander and I am in need of a larger one myself.
