Well I am back in the shop and today I took it easy and made a couple hand sanders that use a standard 3 X 24 sanding belt and cost very little as they are made from offcut plywood and a hinge and the base can be covered
with cork or leather which is what I did on these .
I made a video of the build and here is the link if you like to watch it
give a thumbs up if you like it and subscribe .

I can see how this would be useful in few different ways. If you break a belt this would be a good way to get a little more life out of it by tacking it to your fixture. Good thinking Klaus.
