I picked up a few used FWW magazines last week. On the back of the cover of FWW #105 (April 1994) there is one of the nicest home made sanders I've seen. The title of the short article is called "Labor of Love". The maker is David Kuznitz of Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
It's a wide belt sander but the article doesn't say how wide. It does show a standard metal electrical outlet box on the front of the machine, so a little measuring, and knowing how long one of these boxes are would tell you how wide. It cost David $2,000 to build. It has 3 motors with the main motor being 7 1/2 horsepower. It has other bells & whistles also. I won't say anymore than that, but maybe Matthew could post the picture and the article here for others to see and read. It's a very short article since it's on the back page and the picture takes up most of the page.
Thanks for the great article Matthew!
I would love to have this book. Inspiration is always needed by a woodworker.
After hearing an interview with Michael Dresdner I would definitely like to have this book.
This is one DVD set that I've coveted for a long time. Can't afford it, so winning this DVD would be wonderful! Now if I could just figure out how to win Hendrik's other 3 DVD sets. WOW!
I don't have a resource for table building. This would be great!
Chairmaking is a challenge. What a wonderful book to own! I hope I can become the owner of this copy.
What a great find! I never really thought about woodworking in the Civil War era. Of course it’s obvious once it’s mentioned. I would really like to have a copy of this book, especially if it has actual projects to build.
When it comes to hand tool work, it doesn't get much better than Tom Fidgen. I would love to have his book.
I have this book entered in a list of woodworking related books I'm hoping to purchase one day.
I really like the idea of these bench cookies. Unlike a non-skid matt on the bench, these get your work up off of the bench top and allows you to do things like routing edges. Love to have a set.
