My build of the Matthias Wandel 6X42” Belt Sander. It works really well and only took a few hours between 2 days to build from start to finish. The pictures show it with a 4” home-made sanding belt until my supplier has the correct belt.

Great jig Yogi. Some linishers are underpowered, I see this as a way around that. Well done.
