    An excellent project I have to say. I am getting ready to put one of these on my drill press, and I may make one for my bench grinder. Thanks for the great idea.

    I finally made a mop of your design to help me remove old finish from an old child's rocker I am restoring for my granddaughter. I initially used 120 grit. After reviewing your video, I'm going to make a 2nd one using 80 grit. Great addition to shop. Thanx.

    Really good and it lets you make one for whatever grit you like.

    Great Idea shall have to give this a go

    got to save this idea for the wood/workshop hacks

    The ideal nut and bolt for this situation really needs to be a left handed thread. Otherwise you will find that with the rotation of the drill it works itself loose.

    I used a lock nuts to prevent that

    Good idea but even lock nuts will loosen over time due to the vibrations but it would help some.

    I have my first sanding mop for many years... and never had the problem of a loosning nut.... Or use some CA glue to lock the nuts. And use a heatgun to loose them again.
