A MDF drum of the same diameter as the sanding drum attached to the top of the spindle and elevating the workpiece lets me follow the pattern attached to my workpiece .

Great idea. I have seen these for drill press drum sanders (bearings), but have never seen one for an OSS.
Nice work.

Very clever idea! Just one addition – bearings with wooden O-ring like with router bit. It keeps from wood burning.

OK, but the spool moves with sanding drum. Is it so? Still this jig is very helpful.

Great idea, and it will give you mirror images for those times when two sides of a project have to match exactly
without all the stress and strain, once again the gray matter wins out. Thank you for sharing.
