I have a burr king model 760 and it is the real deal. way to spendy for the average home user since it is an industrial unit but you can find them at auctions. they go for around $700 on ebay and anything under $500 is a steel.
oh ya i paid $25 for mine :flipoff2:
I didnt build my own but two guys in my metal shop class each built one. theres plans on the net, im not sure where they found them but they both turned out very nice. they had some problems figuring out what size motor to use, they ended up wiring the motors for 110v but i cant remember what size they were. neither of these two guys were "master fabricators" by any means. there was alot of machine work involved with most of the parts so if you have access to a lathe and a mill id say go for it. sorry im not much help for the plans but i do know they are out there.odee said:Has anyone on here belt their own belt sander out of parts?
