It's been a pretty busy couple weeks but I'm so excited to be @fadmarket this weekend. @aliweds and I have been working hard getting ready for the holiday season and this weekend marks the beginning of it all! So come on over, say hi and see what new things @untitled_co_ has to offer. Also, come hungry because there is so much good food @citypointbklyn
Just knocked together another rolling shop cart. I now have all of my bench top tools on these mobile carts. There's nothing fancy about the design, but it's very strong and I can slide a milk crate underneath for storage.
Gluing up the two platen rollers. 3 layers of 18mm mdf. Will most likely put them in the metal lathe to get them to final diameter and do the counterbires for the bearings.
Well this might work instead.
The great thing about mocking something up is that it is right in front of you, 1:1 scale and you really get a feel for it.
So moving the motor further back takes up the slack in the belt and allows the platen arm and table arm to sit up close to the main body. The platen arm can infact sit flush against the body, increasing rigidity at this point.
Will need to go back to Sketchup and match the new idea with the 3D model!
I really should have done a mock up earlier and designed around the most critical component, the belt.
This will work as is, but the arms would be better with more length inside the body and the body could be longer. This would improve overall rigidity.
Now to decide what to do 😀. #woodwork#workshop#beltsander
Doug and Sean go over the awesome Makita BO6050J Dual-Mode 6" Sander. Dual mode means that it has a random orbital mode that you're accustomed to, but also an aggressive gear-driven eccentric mode that resembles a belt sander in its material removal capability. Half the price of the Festool Rotex RO 150, with the same features. Get yours now with fast, free shipping at toolnut.com. Watch the full review on our YouTube channel ToolNutTV.
