    Default The FH Clement CO, Disc & Bobbin Sander

    This is my 1890's Disc & Bobbin Sander, which I am adding a Wadkin guard (bought from "Clear Out" a member of this forum) just propped it up to roughly see what it will look like, the Wadkin is a bigger disc, but still should be better than what had been fabricated for it by others before I bought it.

    What were the chances of that fitting or did you have to jury rig something up to fasten it to the machine?

    It's not fitted yet I just blocked it up to see how much bigger it was, will need to make some brackets.

    It took me a minute to figure out the "bobbin" - I was looking for a fitting that would allow sanding of bobbins. We Yanks call them "spindle" sanders.

    Does that bobbin bob - does it oscillate as it turns?
