Sanding tool
Sanding tool This tool is made for a friend of mine.
His hobby is making all kind of traditional wooden bows. For this he need to a lot of sanding to make the wood smooth and to the right thickness. This tool can sand wood to any thicknes between 0 and 50 mm thickness. You have to attach a electric drill to the sanding drum to power it.
While sanding will make a lot of dust you can use a vacuum cleaner to suck the dust away. An additional 3D printed cyclone dust collector is added to the setup to save you the price of a few vacuum cleaner bags. Sanding tool Sanding tool
