This is the fleshing (wire wheel) machine I made. The reason the wheel is not center is so I could use the stand I had and still set in a chair. I may flip the box to give me more room when I feel like building a taller motor stand and cutting the legs off my current stand. I caulked the seams so it wouldn't collect the nice stuff. Here is the motor I used. The plexiglass top. That really helps. I didn't have it at first. I hope this can give some of the guys and gals just starting out something to go by. The only thing I have that cost me outright was the wire wheel. Everything else was either given to me or I had laying around the house. Now I did machine the shaft to connect the wire wheel and motor but I am sure you can find something that works at a hardware store.
