    Interesting process, thanks for sharing. I'm interested in the belt sander as I've never seen one like that. Did you make of modify it?

    One things for sure this guy is no novice when it making an assessment of damage then creating a solution for repair.
    Nice simple tool and great skills in repairing, very nicely done.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Thank you for your nice comment, C-Bag

    I have not made the belt sander. It's just a regular pipe sander. I've just made an elevation on the sides of the wheels to keep the belt better in place when I work fast sideways on tubes like in the video.

    Well commercially there is Dynabrade, and another common to moldmakers, can't recall name. Anyway, I'm betting skateboard bearings and a crowned poly wheel could be driven by right angle grinder, just a scaled down belt sander. The belts come short as 12'' or so and narrow, 3/8'' to 1/2'' wide, not just abrasive, Scotchbright and felt too.
