    Umm..why?

    Is this supposed to be some kind of belt sander replacement?

    Because he could I guess. Some folks love doing that. Can’t say it will be a great tool though. I would not want it.

    That’s where I’m at too. It’s huge and probably not very efficient. Think about the max speed of a treadmill. It’s likely too slow for this contraption to be useful.

    I’ve been telling the wife for years that was what I was going to do with one I picked up somewhere.
    Neither of us believe it. 🙂

    It is from HomeMadetools a great site where guys build their tools to solve a problem. Hey the guy needed a belt sander, he got a treadmill cheap presto inexpensive belt sander. I like it. You can sign up for their newsletter and get 20 or so links to home made tools 3 times a week. I really enjoy it.

    lol that is quite the sander. I would think the treadmill wouldn’t run fast enough to really be that effective but it’s an interesting idea. Might be useful for certain shapes and sizes of projects.

    I would have to agree with Dan, I don’t think it would run fast enough to do a good job. I am not sure I would need one that big. Now if you could speed it up and mount it vertically like a timesaver, you might have something.

    Anything is possible with some re-engineering .

    I think it would need a 2hp and 3600 rpm. You can find a used on cheaper than messing with that.

    I think it is very creative and probably would work well if you can control the speed .I would be cautious about standing at the end of it on high speed .
