Thickness Sanders

So here is a small file I had (one of many) on thickness sanders. There are two larger units, one a larger version of the the one built by Shop Notes magazine and the other from an old Mother Earth magazine. The remaining ideas and information were from a model ship building site, that I am not sure exists anymore. There is lots of good information there on wood and sanding.

I have always looked at thickness sanders without a powered feed belt or feed rollers as a bit unsafe. If your not hanging on to the wood or slip your grip, the result could be rough. There is a good safety write up at the end of this file for limiting the chance of injury or damage when operating a thickness sander.
