I have terrible luck lending things out . Recently , well this summer , I lost my car charger .
Lent it out to my friend, then he thought it was his . Should have put my name on it .
So I guess the good news is I never got it back broken ,just never got it back period

Anybody on theForum participated in belt sander racing? I remember some guy asking how he could fit a second motor, rotating in the opposite direction, to get more horsepower out of his racing machine.

I thought they were supposed to be stock machines Biagio but maybe there different classes.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Just run your 110V machine at 220V...same result.

I would have thought so Charles, but I suppose there is a Super Modified category, as in auto racing. I cannot remember the thread now, but I seem to remember you or Herb responding to the guy. I thought he was taking the mickey, but looked it up, and sure enough there are regional leagues and championships.
On YouTube, some of those sanders really took off.

Nice looking shield, but wasn't necessary as I would hope he wouldn't let it happen again, not to mention his finger is probably too short to get there now.

If there is an awkward way to operate a tool I assure you I have done it, and still have all my digits. (I may loose all 10 tomorrow) It's all about educating yourself about what is going on.
Education is far better than shields.

Late friend was a gunsmith and used to make octagon barrels for muzzle loaders, the planer to do this had a large leather belt that ran on a app 16" dia. wooden pulley at knee height up to another pulley a little over head height, with no shields. Due to other equipment you had to walk right next to it which he did dozens of times a day and people were always over visiting him and around it. I could see somebody's clothing just a little loose and getting wrapped up in it, or loosing balance next to it. It would not have been a pretty sight.
But it was like that for decades and nobody got bit that I heard of.
