Evening Chaps  Big Grin



It being to cold for shop work in the evenings ,especially when one has been out in the cold and wet all day .I thought I would make a start on my belt sander project , 

I have just about all the materials about 95%  . The last to arrive was the VFD and the 2.2Kw 2800rpm flange mount motor .

I bummed a wee bit of 180 mm dia  ally bar to make the drive pulley and a larger contact wheel from .

And these  are some of those toxic to North American belts  Big Grin  , I hear Marmite and Vegemite are also banned LOL ( I personally love the stuff )

The wheels I probably will probably not use , I plan to make my own ,part of  that missing 5% is rubber  Drool




So the design so far , this is still very much a work in progress as I have a lot of ideas to flesh out .
