I have been toying around the idea of building my own drum sander, like the following:
Today I had another idea and I wanted to run it by the forum. Is it possible to convert a lunch box planer into a drum sander? I have seen a lot of good deals for 13" planers on Craigslist. I would be happy with a 13" sander, since I plan to mostly sand strips of wood for veneer purposes.
Will it work? I'm not sure how easy/quick it would be remove and add new sand paper to a homemade roller...
