Made this table so that I could use all the sanding paper on my drum sanders. Using the correct insert to suit the sanding drum then raise the table to any height so as to use all the paper also because there is a small gap around the drum where it enters the table and the attachment of a shop vac it takes all the dust away.
This could be adapted to fit a fence as well.
This is not my idea just saw it and adapted it for my needs

yep – that got added to the To Do list. I especially like the removable inserts.

Very nice – with the edges proud, you can still clamp.

Just added to my favorites! I don’t have as gnarly as DP as you do, but it’s a start!
Thanks for sharing.
Well done.

Very cool! This is soooo going on my to-do list. Sadly my drill press sets right next to my shop-vac, but I usually have to use the vac to clean the drill and itself off when I’m done with it. NICE!

Nice job. I need to something along these lines to size the key stock for my boxes and of course other sanding jobs. Interesting. Thanks.
