I finally got around to make some stands for my random orbit sander and belt sander .
It seem like when ever I set one or the other down on the bench it was too soon and they would still be running and take off so here is my answer to the problem .
Two stands that are easy to use and are built with a sqare and round tennon to be able to insert them in a square or round dog hole so I can use them in all kinds of location on the bench and also on my work center and it also keeps them nice and steady as opposed to a stand with a base sitting on the bench .
The belt sander is slid onto the stand like this and when lowered is nice and locked on the arm and hled there by its own weight .
The other thing that I wanted to accomplish was the storage of both sanders in a close by location under the bench and that worked out well also .The sanders are easily put under the bench using the stand for the random orbit sander and a flip out bracket for the belt sander.
I can just reach down and slide the belt sander on to the bracket and then tip it toward the back of the bench to keep it away from sticking out past the front of the bench and the cord hangs nicely over the peg .
Another issue solved and making things just a bit more organized .
