This has been a work in progress. I didnt want to post pics until I thought it looked nice enough. Well I think its nice enough and pretty spot on with its TRUE-ing ability. Its simply an old Comm lathe, in which I moved the side plates closer, and milled a cross section out to mount a dremel drum with set screws. It works great. Thought I would share it with you. ENJOY!!!

What did you use for the pulley?

The pullies are from the TRINITY brush butcher and the belt is a plumbing "0" ring. There are a ton of pullies out there though that will work.

Mike Keely: Can I see pics of yours?
