Motor Mount and Belt Cover for the Surface Sanding Machine

Motor Mount and Belt Cover for the Surface Sanding Machine

In this project, I lift the drum sander’s motor up and move it closer to the shaft of the drum. In doing this, I shorten the belts between the motor and the drum. I mounted the motor on an adjustable platform that allows me to adjust the tension on the belts. I also built a cover for the belts.
