Comments:
Seller was advertising this as a spindle sander. It had a 2" sanding drum on the spindle and a 4 step pulley on the motor. No other accessories were included.

I disassembled it, striped most of the old paint, removed the rust and repainted with Rustoleum dark machinery gray. I Purchased a new fence and ring guard. The bearings sounded rough so I took apart the spindle and replaced them. I replaced the 4 step motor pulley with a single 6" pulley so that I can test it out. I'm working on machining a "wide" motor pulley. I still need to re-wire the motor and hook up a forward/reverse switch.

Oh, and I need to buy some tooling.
