VIDEO AT BOTTOM
It seems that I spend an unorthodox amount of time waiting for my sander to stop spinning before I can put it down; or it slides all around on the work surface until it comes to a stop. I hate that.
This is a orbital sander stand that allows you to set your sander down, after turning it off, without waiting for it to come to a complete stop.
Originally, the top was parallel to the bottom (or level). There was a tendency though, for the sander to want to vibrate out of the holding slot. I fixed this by cutting the sides so the top sits at a 10⁰ angle to the bottom. I also attached some perforated rubber drawer liner to the bottom, so it won’t slide around on the work surface.
