I have an idea, still in its very early stages, of building a drum sander. I looked on eBay for conveyor belts and they're all big money. I just saw a running machine on Facebook tonight... They must be ten a penny a few months after all those new years resolutions have finally been laid to rest. And, I assume, they would have all the speed control gear built in and salvageable. And a decent motor? I'm honestly not sure as I've ever even touched one of them, so I have little idea really - has anyone here had one apart, and are there good, useful, salvageable bits, or is it all sealed unit proprietary stuff? I don't even really know the scale of them, but they look about right for the conveyor of a drum sander build?
