Because edges of small parts are difficult to sand square with power tools and even with sanding blocks, I build this benchtop edge sander out of plywood scraps. The great deal is that I can use all torn out sanding belts I’ve been keeping for years, reason why sized it for my 3” X 21” belts, which can be flipped over so I could use their full width.
As shown, I used a jig to rout the slots for sliding the belt up and down.
The price to pay is some elbow grease for perfect square edges.

Thanks for looking.
