    You can reverse the polarity to make a motor go the other way

    15:00 Dave, you can use angle grinder, fasten you weel AS A GRINDER BLADE and next shape your weel on the sand paper.

    It's a good thing to reuse components, but the motors you show are called "fan duty", that means they are air- over design, cooled by the air flow they are in, thus saving the manufacturing cost of an internal fan. You can get away with it for short durations but they may well overheat if sustained in use.

    Well done! I’m impressed how you reversed the motor – the winded wire thing is called a stator because it is stationary whereas a rotor rotates.

    Nice job. But better to put top roller on hinge for easy in out adjustment.

    This is probably the best and/or simplest video for this type of belt sander on the net and I've trawled through quite a few so far. I think this is the one I'm going to make. I like the way you worked through the thoughts and theories and explained what didn't work rather than a polished finished article. It's good to learn from my mistakes but I would rather learn from someone else's mistakes. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the video Dave
    Most simple design I have seen so far.
    I like the way you kept on going and spoke about the alterations that you had to make along the way.
    Far better than watching a video where it's all done perfect first time because they have edited it that way.

    Nice build. One question if possible…how many amps/rpm's on the motor at the highest setting? I'm thinking that anything I build should be equal or greater to match your performance. I'd be adding a 5-6 inch disk station as well.

    Thank you…

    the harbor freight is smaller and lighter than that wood one and it is a metal frame, maybe weights about 5lbs… I got it for about $35 with coupon… I could build one too but it is proven that the HF is awesome as it is for a cheap tool…. I would try the 2" x 72" sander on wood, that would be a nice project!
