There’s many bow sanders out there, now there’s 1 more.

Plywood, 1” x 1 and 1/4”dowels, washers, wood screws and a 5/16” knob nut and machine screw. The bottom 2 are fixed in place, the top 1 rides in a slot to for tightening.

hairy, that’s slick. What is the width of the 2 fixed rollers, and how tall is the frame? I figure this will get copied, so getting the math cheat up front.

Nice job, thanks for posting.

Nice Hairy! I’ve contemplated something like this but this is as simple and functional as it comes.
