2016-10-13 (Th) Power Drill to Belt Sander Conversion COMPLETED

Completed sander

It was a successful day of sanding. Only minor adjustments were needed to keep the sander running and once the adjustments were made it kept working. No parts were added or changed, today was just testing performance and it passed.

Gear, drill, and sander

One thing that was worrisome but turned out to be unimportant was the alignment of the drive wheel. It didn't fit the width of the structure, so a standard nut was added but that threw it off center. The cones on each side of the pulleys kept the belt in line and centered the whole time even during full speed and pulling on the belt during sanding.

The downloadable files have been updated to ensure that the actual files used for printing were listed. Please enjoy.
