« Part 8: Progress on the drum. Part 9 of Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. series Part 10: Progress, and congress... »

So I spent some quality time yesterday in the shop, turning the end caps. Specifically turning the first one to final size and then cutting the shoulder into it for a nice, snug fit on the Schedule 40, and then starting to rough in the second one…

I may have to redo the first as I did something stupid. I removed it from the chuck before the drill chuck came in, so I haven’t center bored it yet… I will make certain it’s good and round before I start punching that center bore!

Chances are, I won’t have an opportunity to get to work on it again until at least the weekend. I have work keeping me late, and the some more work on the main bathroom, time to prime! I figure by the time I am done with all my projects, i will either have to start all over again, or I will be dead…
