    Oscillating Drum (spindle) Sander for my old drill press

    Here's an add on mechanism I made for my drill press. It could be adapted to other drill presses as well. The Poly Round belt is a hit and works well in a V-belt pulley is the load is not high.

    Beautiful!
    Now I'm thinking of building one using and old drill press and a corded variable speed hand drill (the kind with the locking trigger and adjustment nut).
    I tend to hack stuff together to see if it'll work and then leave it that way for decades.

    Thanks you sir. Yes the hand drill could simply construction and they are cheap. I have used them 3 times for other applications. I have harbor freight drills on a drill press table, the head of my round column mill and a lathe I made (for a lead screw feed).
