Very versatile stand Klaus, it should serve you well. I wish I had this many many years ago when all I had was a small belt sander. Love the dust collection port. Don’t let Benchy get any closer, he’ll be half the size.

Just watched your video Klaus. It’s amazing the things you do with just one tool. I lean so much from you and your awesome projects. Your anti kick back was very interesting. Great job on all the jigs and the video!

Another nice jig. Nice way to put those big belt sanders to work again. I haven’t used mine in ages.

Very GOOD, Kiefer!

I was wondering what was holding the Vertical piece, that has the Dovetail keyways in it… that the other piece slides into that covers the belt… It looks like you possibly drilled & tapped into the Belt sander body in order to mount it to the belt sander… In other views I can’t seem to see the mounting holes… Are they hiding somewhere? ... I guess this part is special to your belt sander… (??)

Very ingenious… as usual…

Super COOL the way you can configure it Vertically, etc. for other way of sanding…

Your belt sander is Makita… what is the model #? (do they still make it?)

I really like your logic & the way you think! Amazing!
... You make it looks SO EASY and straight forward…

Thank you very much!

Using a hand belt sander to the max, it is certainly not sitting on a shelf gathering dust, just making dust. I would want a sander with a lifetime replacement warranty. Creative engineered holder. Well done and constructed.

Thanks all for your kind comments .
I think this stand will be a nice addition to my shop and get used often but also store well hanging on the wall solving that space issue .
