WHS Site and Forum Registration. (24 Jul 2018)

On the front page under the pic it reads, "Due to all the spammers the register link for the WHS Forum has been removed. If you want to sign up for the WHS Forum just give us a call, information is on the contact us page. Thank You."

You can give me a call at and I can set you up. It's more work for me but I feel it's worth it to keep the site clean. Thanks. :thumb1

I finally finish my latest project. A 1" X 42" belt sander. Some call these knife sanders. This thing really works nice - for wood and metal. Especially on small parts. Much better than my 6" X "46 Belt - 12" disc sander

Made according to plans by Matthias Wandell (woodgears.ca).

Sometimes there's no substitute for small. Looks nice and should come in very handy. :10

Thanks for the kind words guys. This was a nice project. Not expensive if you have a motor (I did).

This sander has four nice features.

1) Deep throat
2) It will sand right up to a corner
3) The platen is easily changed. Insert a round one and you sand the inside of a curve.
4) It has really nice dust collection

If you like homemade tools, take a look at Matthias Wandell's web page ( www.woodgears.ca ). This guy is building his third band saw. This one is a 20 inch. He does some amazing work. Videos are on YouTube.
