Table Fan Grinder

Introduction: Table Fan Grinder

hi guys.,
this is my first project, forgive for any presentation defects.
want a grinder made by yourself which is practically useful unlike usb fan grinder or hard drive grinder?
you gotta check this out.

Step 1: Unscrew the Table Fan Top

remove the top of the fan and actually remove the fan from the should look like the one in figure.

Step 2: Find Some Disc

get a disc which is made of a metal or it can be anything that is tough enough. see picture..

Step 3: Find Some Rubber Foam or a Cycle Tube

this is used for fixing the disc onto the rod of the motor.
and then fix the disc firmly may not be perfect.

Step 4: Grab a Piece of Sand Paper

take a sand paper cut into a spherical one with a hole at the centre for the motor rod

Step 5: Fix the Sand Paper on to the Disc

fix it and you can add some glue for it stick nice and clean.
But the best part of the project is that it works even if you dont glue the sand paper, all you gotta do is just pierce the sand paper and while grinding the force you apply itself binds the sand paper onto the disc. ain't that cool!

Step 6: And the Last Step

switch on the power and you can enjoy grinding this.
now this is useful for practical purposes, though it takes some time to do the things , it feels awesome using a tool made by yourself.... get going
and again i apologise for any inconvenience in the presentation.
hope you guyz like it. I would like to upload a video on its working . this thing is awesome bros.
and comments are always welcome
and please like this page by me
would be a great encouragement

    I like THIS idea much better than the typical hard-drive grinders. After all, if a fan stays on for hours to cool a room space then I see no reason why a fan motor can't be used as a grinder.

    I've searched Instructables for a DIY fan motor grinder, and This is the first project I found so far. Thanks for sharing! :-D

    Do you think you could do something similar with a grind stone rather than San paper?

    I have always wanted to add something not normal and safe to a fan motor!

    Neat idea, thanks for sharing!

    Awesome hack! I bet the fan motor can really put up with the long run times like a champ. Thanks for sharing!
