    A few of my homemade tools.

    I joined back in November of 2016, but can't seem to find my original post. I was asked to show some pictures of my lathe and drum sander, so here goes.

    The sander is run by a furnace motor. The drum moves up and down, mounted on a hinged box. There's a fan blowing on the motor, hooked up to a timer. The drum is a shaft from an old grinder, wooden inserts, 3" PVC pipe, gorilla glue, and 36 grit sandpaper. Frame is an old sewing machine.

    The lathe is powered by a washing machine motor. The shaft is from an old homemade grinder found in a pile of rubble. I use a drill chuck on both head and tail stock. The bed is 2x4x1/16 tube steel. The top hinges so I can work with the lathe while standing or sitting. After I took these pictures, I added a light and a port to hook up my homemade dust collector. No pictures of that yet. Essentially, I used two 55 gallon drums, a leaf blower and a bucket.
