It's a good idea. You can also turn your shopsmith into a mini thickness sander by positioning the table under that drum.

It's genius, with the Shopsmith, and the incredible versatility with their variable speed, the sander would work great I would imagine.

You could save the $80 and make your own holder for the sanding sleeves and then just mount it between centers.

Just re-read my comment above the video I posted. Lest someone gets the wrong idea, Shopsmith does not make that sander. That one was made by Paul Miller in his Tucson shop. I've used it. It's a neat machine. I'm sure the idea could be adapted to a lathe with no problem.

Thanks Gene. It's on my list! I got rid of my Performax a few years ago, took up too much space, I used it rarely, so it wasn't worth it to keep around for stubbed toes. But there are occasions one could come in handy, and to have one you could hang on the wall, would be beneficial.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
