Picture of Laminating a Cover for My Disc Sander

If your following this series this is part 2 of making a 12 inch 300mm disc sander,in this Instructable I'm laminating a "U" shaped Cowl to fit over the disc for dust extraction.

Step 1: The Disc

Picture of The Disc

I've taken the faceplate of the disc and I'm using it has a former to bend the 2.5 X 50mm strips.

I have screwed 2 pieces of of 20x30mm either side of the disc and then screwed blocks to the outside of the disc spaced equally around the disc

Step 2: Taping Up

I've marked the board around the disc then taped up to protect the board from the glue.

the first strip was not glued to create a 3mm gap to the disc then i glued up with PVA glue the other 3 strips and bent them round the former.

Step 3: Clamping Up

I started clamping up from one side with spring clamps making sure that there was no gaps in the laminates and tapped them level.

Step 4: Realesing the Cowl From the Former

I left the laminate over night before taking the clamps off.
