This is a prototype fixture and not sure what to call it. I needed to sand some legs and don’t own a drum sander or sand flee. I used some scrap flooring and plywood to create an enclosure for the spindle.
I had to make some recessed cauls to facilitate clamping and an “emergency” hole in the top to allow for the oscillation.
Dust collection works great using the factory port.
And the sanded legs remained square as if run through a joiner.
After using for a while, I may make another (taller) one using phenolic and exploring other ways to clamp or affix with a fine adjustment feature.
I thought this might give other Ridgid Sander owners some ideas.
