well I guess today was shop improvement day,got my drill press cabinet done then built my ivan majuvla inspired circle sanding jig.i was going to incorporate kiefers fine adjustment feature but decided I really didn’t need it.i can sand circles from about 2-1/2” up to about 44”,which should take care of my needs.made from shop scraps,and rockler knobs.this is a simple jig that only took me a couple hours of time well spent for the future.once again thanks ivanfor the inspiration.

WOW! You have some serious sanding maschine there (not like my ’’poor man sanding maschine’‘)! It’s a great honor to inspire you (or anybody) here on LJ, since I started learning woodworking here very shy and modest.
Thanks again for that, Pottz.

This is a nice shop fixture and should work nicely.

the top with the center slide is 3/4 ply and the the rest was 3/4 melamine,all left overs.this was real simple to make,a couple hours.
