How well it works will depend on your building skills. Unfortunately the rod I used was just slightly off center. I suggest using a 5/8" keyed rod made of tool steel instead of the home depot rod I had to cut my own key slot into. I plan on rebuilding the drum. The drum is made from MFD discs, epoxy glue and a steel rod. If you go wide 18" or more I would use a 3/4" rod and pillow blocks. Many have built this with excellent results as you will learn by searching the net.
Start with this link: http://lumberjocks.com/YorkshireStewart/blog/3640. Dominic has printable plans for the 12" version.
