Since my stationary belt sander lacks of vertical support to sand edges, I came up with these two jigs for my 6” X 48” stationnary belt sander. The horizontal jig used for long stock clamps to my drill press table while the vertical jig, for shorter stock, clamps to the tool shelf.

On both the skew angle keeps the belt as cool as possible, even the wear and reduce resin clogs. My jigs are made out of 3/4” MDF, except for the triangle sides of the horizontal support, which are made out of 5/16” HDF that I had on hand.

To get perfect results, the jigs must be at 90° from the sanding belt.

As you can imagine, now edge sanding is a pleasure in my workshop, particularly on thin stock.

More photos and details are available from my blog (above links).

Best,

Serge

Great idea SERGE
Putting supports at an angle is going to help with heat and use up the belt more evenly .
I like and keep the good stuff coming.

Great Serge,
That is really usefull, I have only a hand version but with a table mount it could be done.
Hope you are fine my friend.
Best thoughts,
