I have been needing a sander for my shop for some time. However the problem was where to put it. After some consideration I decided to build a full extension shelf into the workbench. The slides are rated to hold the weight of the sander and it seems stable when test sanding. I had to modify the top rail of the bench (picture 1) but reinforced it from the back side so I did not loose any stability. This unit has a dust port on the back side and I just need to get a elbow to fit it and my vac. to use it. I think this will solve a lot of problems and be very useful.

The shelf is made from oak plywood and I trimmed it in oak on three sides. Several coats of spray varnish for looks.

Thanks for looking.
