Homemade disc sander

Some time ago i had to buy a new washing machine, and before i scraped the old one i took the electric motor off .

With some peaces of wood i have put the sander together, i wantend to make it small and easy to store, it mounts on a bench vise.

The disc has about 25cm diameter (10").

I have never used one before, and let me tell you this is a very nice tool, it will make life easier on a lot of occasions.

First use:


  1. I will keep your new article. I really enjoyed reading this post, thanks for sharing.


  2. Would you please share with me how you connected the wiring on the motor? Every where I have looked,it looked weird.

    1. I don't remember exactly the connections, but when i have the chance i will post a foto of it.
