Improved sander

I have always had problems with sanding the edges.
They were not always beautiful, and exactly 90 degrees.
I took my own small belt sander and improved this.
I intend to change this setting so that work table can be moved above and below.
I do not have a good idea of how to do it now.

Here’s my blog from some time ago; it shows the cutout that holds the sander for guys that want to do this.

Nice jig!

Have you tried sanding with a piece of scrap next to your edge? This would help prevent the sander from rolling over the edges.

Here’s an idea : Add a slanted bed, or change the supports of your actual bed, so workpieces will hit the belt across its width. Doing it, the belt won’t clog up easily and wear evenly. Clear enough?

Question: How do you hold down your belt sander so it won’t move?
