I'm wanting to re-purpose a bandsaw motor that is laying around - is 1/3 hp sufficient to power a 12" disc sander?

Hmm, the one I built I used a 1hp and it is a beast. I'd think 1/3 may be fine

Kevin - did you have any printed plans or did you seat-of-the-pants it?

Oh I have some plans. They were adapted to be a bench top unit, as the plans are for mounting on a lathe,
I think I've shown it before, but let me get that for you.

Dave, do you have a disc? I got mine on Ebay for about $23 shipped, it was new/old stock for a Shopsmith.
If you want to make a 9", I have a disc you can have for the shipping cost. I'm pretty sure it fits a standard motor shaft.

I have a 9" that I used to use in the table saw. I think that will be sufficient, if not I will pop for the big one.
