I do on another. A disk mill on metal I cut off at an angle (a corner any), so quicker….. If – you are tired to grind these sockets 50 by 50 of mm or 70 by 70 mm (long).

Great technique Jerry! The last bit with the spacer on the TS sled, why have I never thought of that???

Is your disc sander table tilted? I’ve always used a miter gauge and slid the gauge in the slot while sanding to avoid the burning, doesn’t always work out. How do you remove any left over burning without ruining that nice crisp point?

No offense taken :-) It just took me a little while to get to Lumberjocks this morning and see the comments. Your method looks great, thanks for sharing.

Yes, disc sander table is tilted to 30 degrees. I use a miter gauge in the furthest slot because the closest slot doesn’t provide clearance for the miter gauge to pass. I added a long fence to my miter gauge so I could get support right next to where the sanding is going on. The burning is a hit or miss thing for me. If I get impatient, it burns, but if I go really slow, it doesn’t. I remove the burning by hand sanding. I have a flat reference surface with sandpaper belts glued to it that I use to flatten my boxes, so I’m using that to sand off the burned areas. If you’re careful, you can keep the point intact, but it’s better to not have to do it in the first place, so slow and patient sanding is the ticket.
