I am in the process of building my version of the "rockslide" drum sander that Daren has linked on his thread. I have the frame built and all the disks cut for the drum. I have most of the parts that I need to finish it. I just need to free up some time so I can get it done. When I am finished I will have a little over $150 into it. I had a lot of the parts to built it laying around the shop.

Assumption is the mother of all foul -ups
