    Rod I see on your drum sander you made it so the drum is more stable. Can you tell me how you made the attachment on the side and what its made out of? I have the same sander and would like to make one similar. Thanks

      This is my version of an OEM (don't know the brand) shown in the pic.

      All made from Marine plywood - Sander drilled/tapped for the attachment.

      If Sam fixes the pic "restriction" I will post a pic!

            How in the world did one individual find enough time to build all the cabinets, jigs etc? The time and detail put into this shop is breathtaking.

                I don't know how many times I've read this thread over the years and it is always inspiring. Rod was gifted with such great talent and generously shared it with us all.
