I don't know. My second is 2x48 and the basic plan is for 2x42. I don't think he has reveled that yet.

I have a little Delta model that uses a 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" wide belt and probably 36" in length. It also has a vertically mounted round sanding platen of 8" diameter or so with the angle adjustable on both the belt and disk tool rests.

What say you digr', on this belt width thang'?

Got the pulley done tonite, had some other things goen on. I found a nice fat bearing at the junk shop so I am going with only one bearing.

1 drawing
2 faced off a piece of pipe and tacked the blank to it.

3 drilled, bored and reamed to 1" to be able to use mandrill later

4 bored for bearing and snap ring. Set compound 2 1/2 degrees and beveled pulley for the crown leaving 1/4" flat at center. bearing is 2 1/4" wide

5 used mandrill to finish opposite side

That would seem to give much more rigidity, digr. As usual, your work is excellent.

You don't always use the table and sometimes need the belt to flex.

I am going to build my table if I can get back to the shop. Looks like mon or Tues.

I think the first one with the tapered bar was better than the origonal. At least easier to make. I don't see the advantage in this last one except it is easier to put a table on. Also what is the oval hole for. I would make it solid. It it doesn't serve a purpose why do it. The origonal design might be improved and your first design might be improved, but I don't think this is it.

TBS, The build is great to this point and the new backbone might add to it.
