I had an old Craftsman band saw, never could keep the
blade on it, even when it was new, 196?.
I turned it into a spindle sander using a Harbor Freight
drum that just happened to have the same size arbor
as the shaft, well almost, I to do just a bit of filing.
The table surface is a 39 cent floor tile from Lowes.
As you can see I used motor, switch and cord.
It has become one of the most used tools in my shop.
Wood and metal. It uses the old belts from my
belt sander. The paper held on with a cam thing.
When I was building the boat this thing ran for
hours on end and never complained.
I can also use the top of the old bandsaw with
the smaller drum. Very nice for truing up miters.
Before the paint job!
