I used to work for a furniture maker and one of my favorite tools in his shop was an ancient stationary belt sander – a giant version of what you get when you turn a belt sander upside down and clamp it to the bench. The work surface was the size of a small kitchen table, and we used it to sand the joints flush on drawer boxes.
The sander in this video is of more recent vintage. What's interesting about it is that it was home made from an exercise treadmill that was found in the trash. It's very clever – especially the granite top. If I had room for one of these things I'd be out looking for an old treadmill.
