Looks like everything you could want to sand down and refurb a bat...

Not enough oooomph.

I looked at this when I was building my system, I asked John at red ink for his thoughts and he said he had one but sent it back as it was useless.

As well as the motor not really being powerful enough, this picture gives you an idea of how tiny the drums are.

For the same money you could find a cushioned linisher or drum sander, Potzy. Are you in NZ?

It"ll be 110v as well.

This it a good place to get an old motor

just add a decent pneumatic sanding drum with the correct arbor to fit.

How come you've not made your own one already then? ;-) I thought that's how you Kiwi folk did things!

Haha. Yeah I'm getting onto it as we speak, using a couple of sheep on a treadmill to run my sander ;).
 Just wanted an idea about the motor size needed.

My big sander is 1.5 h/p (about 5 sheep!)
