A Loooooong time ago (October 2013) I bought a belt sander attachment for my ShopSmith and disassembled it.
It sat in this plastic bin in my office since then doing nothing…
…until tonight! Tonight the kids and I cleaned it up and put it back together.
We didn’t figure out electrolysis like I had planned, we ended up just using WD-40 and sandpaper to get it all cleaned up.
Since we were just sanding and not doing anything crazy with electricity here’s the final shot. Everything spins smoothly, and I replaced the screws that broke with bolts and they mostly seem to be working for now. Now it’s time to buy some sand paper!
