Something more complex than the last : My homemade thickness sander.
I tried to make it versatile: when not in use, I add a top and it becomes a gluing table in the middle of my shop.
I can also extend the shaft of the roll in order to power a buffing wheel.
It's described in details on my site, here : La Belle Note - Thickness sander
Have a look to my very special table lift system, based on wooden gears, inspired by the Master : Mathias Wandel ! (I say hello to him if he reads this)

It is a 48 cm long drum, 10 cm in diameter.
The motor is a washing machine engine.
It's labeled 1/2 HP, but the torque is great.
The bearings are also homemade, I inlaid two ball bearings in two pieces of hardwood.
But indeed, one of the bearings needs to be replaced, so I will replace by 2x2 bearings next time.
My apologize, it's probably my Anti Spam that filters some addresses.
May I ask where you are located ?
What is you IP ?
I will try to understand the issue.
Sorry for that.
