Thank you :)
Thank you, I'm happy you like it :)
Small pieces from my firewood pile also :) There are many sources for free or low cost wood. A couple of years ago, I thought I would never have enough for projects, but now I have a lot of wood stored. Ask someone you know with a woodburning stove or heater if you can rescue a few pieces from their pile. Also good to ask carpenters or anyone working with wood for scrap or offcuts, you will be surprised at the amount of stuff thrown away.
I have started woodworking and woodturning in the last couple of years after a long while away from it. Most of my tools are secondhand or self made. It's good to try and find older quality tools and restore them if they need it. It takes time, but it's definately worth doing :)

Great :) Please let me know how it work out.
Thanks for the comment :) The Allen wrench works very well.
Hi bruce.desertrat,I planned to use those inserts, but the threads cut into the wood are really strong and hold the cutter in position well. The cutter marks a line without much pressure at all, so an insert is not really needed although it will add strength and look nicer too :)
Hi BillMil,Yes, I made a small router plane a few months ago :)
Thank you :) The one I made for myself now belongs permanently on my workbench :D

Thanks again for the information. I forgot to mention that the belts can also be mounted in any direction. It saves any confusion or mistake as can be made with the overlapped joint as you mention, especially if the arrows become obscure over time as can be the case.
The tried to order belts from the only company that I could find advertising them and they told me I would need to order them and wait a considerable length of time. the cost of 5 belts was 32 Euros plus shipping costs. I made 6 belts for about 14 Euros after the cost of materials. I could have made 12 belts for about 20 Euros if I would have bought the sandpaper as a 3 meter length instead of a 2 meter length. i hope this information is helpful. thank you for kind comment on the machine :)
I would really like to know if you manage to try it out and how it works. if I can manage to locate some tape I will definitely give it a go. The first one I made was without the epoxy to strengthen the edges and it still survived a long time only to tear down the centre after a lot of use and the joint remained intact.
The machine was made from the plans by Matthias Wandel. The plans are really easy to follow and the machine works great. It cost me around 10 Euros for materials including the drive belt as I already had a motor.
