I made this belt sander attachment with a good precision adjustment fixture for someone that does not have a disc sander for which I posted the similar attachment some time ago .This attachment works surprisingly well .
Watch the video and see .

I could of used that yesterday when I was making a new insert for the bandsaw! I hate sanding, but sometimes it’s sure saves time and is the only practical way to go! Make Shavings not Dust! LOL!

Klaus, without a doubt, this is a great way to accurately sand down the circle. A lot like a circle cutter on a bandsaw with micro adjustment. THUMBS UP. I’ll keep this in mind.

Very good!

But, couldn’t this also be used with a Disk Sander as well! :)

You should have one you would enjoy the sanding dust it would be a nice change. LOL


Thanks Pete
With a little patience you can get some very accurate results .

Thanks Dave
The advantage is that you get a nice smooth edge and more accuracy .

Thanks Joe
I hope you watched the video and you will hear me say that I also have a similar setup on my disc sander but not everyone has one so this is another option as more people own a belt sander. Here is the link to the disc sander version

Very clever idea Klaus! Simple and adjustable! Much better than freehand sanding to a line!

Thanks Tony
I am a big fan of simple and this is so much faster and more accurate then sanding to the line and you will see that in my next video post when I make the sanding drum .

Klaus, this is a wonderful solution to a sanding problem. You have done a fine job on building this rig for your shop.
