« Part 1: So if the motor runs it's worth at least $40.00, isn't it? Part 2 of Sander Rebuild series Part 3: Boards flying high over clouds of dust! »

Sorry I didn’t get the pictures posted to the first entry. This blog thing is kinda new to me and as a computer operator, I make a darn good truck driver! But, I am learning!!

As you can see she is no beauty!

Yes, I’d say it’s worth $40.
I used to have one of those.

I also have one of these. It has been a great tool, but they have parts that need attention. Mine has died because the clips or clamps holding the motor to the mount came loose and the motor ran wild and off center. The pulleys had a tendency to wander and cause the belt to slip or run into the frame. But put a 36 grit belt from Klingspor on it and it was great for flattening warped boards. There is a post somewhere on LJ’s that describes a restoration of this sander. Sears doesn’t carry many parts for it so when the switch quit working I had to bypass it. enjoy.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Look close and you’ll see that the factory switch on this one has been replaced at some time or another.
