A table for my belt sander
I say: Why buy one?
Wife says: Mind your fingers!

Table-mounted belt sander

I needed to do a bit of sanding for a wood turning project (see drill lathe), so I made a jig to mount my belt sander at 90 degrees to it’s own table. This makes a handy belt sanding table – I used it for both wood and aluminium.

The belt sander is held in place with a large clamp so that it can be easily removed. In the future I may look at building a custom clamp for this.

The lines on the surface are guides at 90 and 45 degrees.

I’ve since attached the sanding table to the top of a small cabinet on castors so that I can move it around. It’s one of the most used tools in the shop now!
