I've acquired (no cost) a very well used and abused floor drill press and Rigid contractor table saw. Both have working motors (don't know much else about them yet). I already have a drill press and table saw and I was considering using one of the motors for a homemade disc sander but I couldn't think of much else to do with them and was looking for some ideas. Anybody have any ideas on what I could repurpose them into?

Shopnotes had a great article many years ago on making a disc sander….I know someone that made one….anybody got the discs that can help him out? I have them, my wife cleaned my home office and I can't find them, and of course she never touched them!!!

Depends on condition.. are they salvagable? If so and you don't want them, clean 'em up a bit and stick them out for sale on CL cheap. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who would love to have them and can't afford much, but would be more than willing to do a rehab if needed. I Really hate to see usable machines parted out if they don't need to be (unless they were junk machines to begin with). Post some pictures so we can see what we are tallking about!

Cheers,
Brad

Know what you mean Mike… I've had many things come up missing over the years that my better half 'never touched'

Brad- The TS might be salvageable. I highly doubt the DP is. But the DP has a almost new Dayton motor on it.
