4-in-1 Belt Sander
Grinding, sharpening, shaping, and sanding — this easy-to-build machine does it all.
This shop-made belt sander is a great solution for a wide variety of jobs working with metal and wood. The best feature of the belt sander is its simplicity. A 1/3-HP motor drives the 2” x 36” abrasive belt around two wheels. A built-in tracking adjustment and automatic tensioning keep the belt in line. And belt changes take about ten seconds.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
