Thickness sander, with gearbox table lift
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)

Nice sander Christophe. How wide is the drum and what motor did you use?
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.

Great-looking tool as usual, Christophe. I like the fact that you can use that table for more than just sanding.
Why do all the links return "Forbidden" ???

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.
I am in Australia.
I am not sure what you mean by IP (Internet protocol) - my IP *address* is dynamically assigned by my ISP (TPG).
