  • New Sander

    Meet my new sander! Well, not really new, itís a 1986 Shopsmith MKV that I found at a pawn shop. I need a sander that I can sit in my comfortable chair and finish sand my Tiny Trees and Mushrooms that I have added to the inventory Iím selling besides the Tiny Tables.
    The stand had to go, along with the pipe framework and other non needed accessories so it could be attached to a mobile cabinet. It will create quite a dust storm but the 2 four inch vacuum hoses suck it all up. After I figure the ideal pick up locations I will build a vacuum manifold system for it and connect it straight to the 6Ē vacuum line. After running it for a dozen or more hours several of the bearing started howling, dried out from 20+ years sitting in a dusty old barn. Opened it up and pour in new bearings and itís a good as new.

      Now I'm intrigued. What do Tiny Trees and Mushrooms look like? I don't remember that thread.

ID:	835948Tiny Trees are something Iíve been making and selling in 3 art galleries and several gift shops, along with my Tiny Tables. Mushrooms are something that I can make out of short pieces of wood and work with the same equipment. Iíll see how they sell .

            Does anyone know why pictures posted on this site go bonkers like the previous post did? I entered text then added the first photo, then I spaced down a couple of lines and added a second photo. What went wrong?
