KMG 2”x72” belt sander for knife making. Construction Instruction for beginner. Part 6.
Building the motor base and attaching it to the sander.
I saw the design for the base in one of the British knives forums. I can’t remember the name of the person who wrote the article. If someone do, please let me know and i will gladly give him his due credit.
This time it is not that important to cut it very precise, but make sure that the dimensions of the cutting will allow you to mount the motor.
Begin by drill and thread all the necessary.
Then all you have to do is to weld parts (e) on top of part (c), then part (b) to part (c).
Now, weld part (d) to part (a).
Assemble everything as in the plan and the photos.
and you done.
As you can see from the images I had to mount it on top of piece of wood. So or do better design or get piece of wood.
And finally, my pride and joy seat proudly on newly built work bench. All there is to do is to mount the electric box on the wall.
That it, but….. I will post another post in regards of The Belt sander. It’s going to be about commissioning the sander and some tips & tricks after few weeks of using it.
