Picture of Drill to buff conversion

P2270121.JPG
I needed a small bench mounted sander and buff to make some small projects. I noticed that you can get lot of attachments for drills so I mounted a drill to the bench. This is so easy that Im a bit embarrassed to write an instuctable about it as I thought that someone must of done this before. But looking through the instuctable site I couldn't find anyone who has mounted a drill like this, anyway,
I like really simple solutions to problems, and it doesn't get much simpler than this.

Step 1: Stuff you will need

Picture of Stuff you will need
1. A drill
2. Threaded rod they call it "all thread in some places"
3. Buffing and sanding attachments
4. Bench
5. Nylock nut
6. Hacksaw
7. ruler or tape
8. about 5 minutes

An alternative to your cable tie are the toe straps (sold in pairs) used to keep bicycle shoes attached to the racing bicycle pedals. I arbitrarily picked one website link to show what it looks like.

The buckle has teeth that serves to grip and lock the strap tight. You pull to tighten the strap. A tightened strap is easily released by lifting and disengaging the teeth.
