How to Make a Cylindrical Sanding Machine From a Drilling Machine. On this occasion I will again discuss about carpentry tools. After yesterday I shared how to make the simplest wood joining tool, this time I will discuss a tool that is commonly used at the finishing stage in woodworking. The carpentry tool is sandpaper or the term in English can be called a sander.
There are many types of sandpaper or sander according to the needs or uses for smoothing the surface of the media. For example, to smooth large media such as a table surface, it is enough to use a belt sander or belt sander. You can also use disc sandpaper or a disc sander that can use a grinding machine as the driving force.
Well, this time I will share a tutorial on how to make a cylindrical sanding machine (drum sander) which is used to smooth the inside of a circular hole. This circular hole must use a drum sander or another term is this spindle sander because it is not possible to also use ordinary sandpaper.
Okay, just follow the tutorial on how to make a cylinder sanding machine (drum sander) from the following drilling machine.
- The first step to make a cylindrical sanding machine (drum sander) from this drilling machine is to prepare the materials and tools first.
- The tools and materials needed include a drilling machine, sandpaper, hole saw drill bits and double-sided tape. After everything is ready, just go to the manufacturing stage. Namely paste the double-sided tape on the sandpaper.
- After that, paste the sandpaper that has been affixed with double-sided tape to the drill bit.
- The result is like this.
- After that, just plug it into the drilling machine and the sander drum sander is ready to be used to smooth the surface of the hole with a circular shape.
It is very easy and simple to make a cylindrical sanding machine (drum sander) from this drilling machine. We don't need hard-to-find tools or materials. Even though it is very easy and simple like that, the cylindrical sanding machine (drum sander) from this drilling machine can still be used like the original spindle sander machine which is sold at a very expensive price.
That's a tutorial on how to make a cylindrical sanding machine (drum sander) from this drilling machine, hopefully it's useful, thank you.
