Hello, Hopefully I'm posting in the right section and someone can help me with this. I'm building a drum sander that will be used primarily for carving canoe paddles. I was originally planning on making it 6" in diameter with 3/4" MDF board circled glued together to create a 18" wide drum. After cutting a circle I decided I wanted a larger drum...10" diameter. Then after cutting the circles I realized that the weight of the drum was adding up quickly and I questioned the strength of my motor. The motor I purchased is a Grizzly 1/3 hp 1725 RPM, 110v/5.3a, TEFC. I have a keyed 3/4" steel shaft that it will spin, what I was hoping was a 10" diameter 18" wide drum of MDF. I'm wondering do I need to upgrade? Or would making the drum smaller say 15" or 13" wide or going back down to 6 or 8" diameter be better. The weight of 12 3/4" of the discs was about 26 lbs or about 2lbs per 3/4" thick 10" diameter MDF board. Any opinion would be appreciated before I keep building. Thanks!
