This is my first posting. I designed and built this wood lathe Disk sanding attachment in the late 70's. I resently retired and plan to spend more time in my shop and sharing my projects with fellow woodworkers.  

Over the years this attachment has served me well. The table and guard come off very easy when you need to use the tail stock for larger turnings. I think I've only had to take it off a couple of times since finishing this project. 

Let me know what you think. I would be happy to send the plans if you're thinking this would be a good addition in your shop.

I think this is excellent. I want to build one with an extra motor I have and you have solved my problem on how to make the tilting table. Great project.
