Ready to tackle those big jobs.

Here are some pictures of a homemade sander I have been putting together. As you can see, it is still not complete. There are no safety guards installed yet but I hope to make them soon. In addition, I am currently working on the sliding table.
I love the old cast iron machines, once they are in place! The lathe, mill bed, and drill press all have been fitted with three phase motors. Since I don't have three phase power, I run them through an inverter, which has the added bonus of being able to have infinite speed control on all of the separate motors.
