A bit of progress today on the sander. Now that this is complete I need to figure out the tower height, width, and depth. As you see it will be a manual bucket dump. Nothing fancy.

So happy this component is somewhat finished.

Both the sand pit and the sander are looking good, Philip.

I agree, your sand structure came out nice and that funnel idea is great looking piece of equipment now. Nice touch of details added.

Very realistic and convincing model. It looks like it would almost work.

Philip that is outstanding although a little fancy for your backwoods operation.

Thanks Bruce, Rick, Louis, Michael & Tyson.

Tyson, I know overindulged a bit, but as you can see the hatch is open and it is a bucket operation to get the sand up there. The other tube is for condensation. It will be a combination tower, stairway tower if I can get a decent plan finished.

I have two rough sketchings drawn up. No sure if I'm happy with either one. I'm also puzzled with the spout mechanics. I'll get something cobbled up.

Again thanks for looking!
Philip

Quick update:

Four legs up on the tower. Good help is hard to find! My primitive drawing is what I'm shooting for. The sander precariously hangs on for now. Why does it take 3x longer than expected always? But I am happy this worked out!

Phillip, You need to include Murphy's Law in all your calculations.

Making some headway on the sanding station. This had been one long drawn out affair. Still need shingles/tin, stove, windows/door installed plus the usual oh hecks!
