Polishing lathe in a cabinet (WAS UFO)


#1

In a message dated 96-12-10 15:15:09 EST, you write:

    Has anyone tried mounting a polishing lathe in a cabinet
    similar to a bead/sand blasting cabinet? That'd solve
    several problems, hooked up to a vacum it'd trap the dust
    (precious metals too), and when things went flying they
    couldn't go very far. Guess I'll have to put together a set
    of plans, what'd ya think?

Dave I have plans to do such a contraption, but since my
husband just bought a 1936 Ford, I haven’t got as many studio
projects out of him! I have been told to vent it to the outside,
but I think hooking it to a shop vac is better.

If you get yours built before I get mine built, I’d like to hear
how you built it.

Thanks,
Candy

Tell Dave that Harbor Freight has a really dandy sand
blasting cabinet that has two glove rings with a clear
plexiglas front lift-up lid for about $100.00. He can use it
for some of the work on the car, and then you can sit the
buffer on a platform inside the cabinet for doing the
polishing.
