I have just started a small series on Repairing & Modifying an Old 6 X 9 Belt Sander/Linisher to dramatically improve its capabilities.
These Machines have been around for near on 40 Years & can be had cheaply on the secondhand market, as well as still being available New
I have been using one I modified around 15 years ago for Fab work in my small shop until I severly damaged it the other day.
So now it needs repairing & while I'm at it I have even more mods planned for it as well as going over the previous DC motor conversion etc.
This is Part 1, enjoy.
