These instructions are a complete step by step guide that will show you how to build a 9″ drill powered disc sander, and it should only cost you about $20 in materials.
This project is designed to be an EASY build. You can probably get most of it done in a couple of sessions. The most time consuming part will be waiting for epoxy and polyurethane to dry!
About the plans:
- Formatted for normal sized (8.5″ x 11″) printer paper, so you can print them at home.
- Includes Metric Version
- Includes French Version (thanks to Jean-Jacques, a French patron!)
- They include:
- A complete shopping list for the materials you need.
- A complete list of parts you need to cut with all the dimensions necessary (with images).
- Step by step instructions that accompany and compliment the build video.
About the Disc Sander:
- Dimensions: 17″ long x 10″ wide x 10″ tall.
- Disc Diameter: 9″
- Uses a corded drill to turn the disc (not included).
- Do NOT use a cordless drill, as it may not be able to handle the load!
Tools required (or at least strongly suggested) to build this project:
- Table Saw
- Miter Saw (Recommended, but not necessary if you have a table saw sled or another way to make good cross cuts)
- 23 Gauge Pin Nailer (Recommended, but not strictly necessary)
- Router (or some other way to make perfect circles).
- Drill Press (Recommended, but you could get by with a regular drill)

- 22mm or 7/8″ Spade or Forstner Bit
- 5/8″ Bit
- 5/16″ Bit
- 5/16-18 Thread Tapping Bit
- Flat File
- Coping Saw (you can get by without this, but it sure made my life easier)
