    ACME?

    Larry, I know you said junk yard machine but let me toss this one out. You might watch EBay and other places for an ACME Edge sander. I found one at an auction for less than $50. Found out after I bought it (didn't know what it really was) that they typically bring $250 from the dealers for a used one. Very simple machines. Very popular too. They use Delta Belt sander components and his own design case. So parts are available if needed. Very simple machine and it works. People that have them love them. I haven't used mine but a couple of times but I am impressed. It's going to be pressed into service pretty soon.

    The only reason I bring it up is that they don't cost a lot more than building one one would. Unless you have the parts laying around of course.

    Linke to Keith's on OWWM. Not sure I have any photos of mine.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
