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.
