Project Information

This is a recent project to make my Central Machinery (Harbor Freight) combo sander more user friendly. The mobile base height gives me a comfortable working position whether I'm using the 9" disk or the 6X48 belt. Since my shop is in the basement I am concerned about minimizing dust, so I built a pvc dust shroud on a stand that the sander fits into. The shroud has a connector for the 4 inch dust collection hose. My dust collector catches almost all the dust created by the belt. I also plan to add a smaller DC port for the belt housing for the disk - that will connect to my shop vac.

Interesting placement for the shroud attach. Out of the way of operation, and easy enough to hook to. Those belt disc sanders are historically harder than a miter saw to catch all the dust on, if you are getting the Lions share, that is a great set up.

Thanks for posting.

Good idea, I might take by grizzley off the stand and build one of those.

Very nice tool cart with storage. I built something similar for my shop and actually have four of them each with four drawers. The tips on mine come off and are interchangeable with some tools not on the carts.

KevinH, That's a fine stand. Has storage and is mobile.
I don't think HF makes that model anymore. Looks like a good one.
What size is it?

I like it. Having a small shop I love mobile workstations. Thanks for sharing

James McIntyre, This is a 6in. x9in. combo belt and disk sander. I think HF still sells a version of it for about $250 before discounts. It came with a metal stand that didn't suit me at the time.
