GMAN I am not sure what you are doing …or why you would want to do it …??????
I am probably very stupid today and missing your point …
But thanks for the post …

GMman, I’ve seen something like this before but I really never understood it. I have an oscillating spindle sander too and maybe this would be useful to me. Can you explain more how you use it?

You take a straight board like a straight edge use a hole saw size close to the size of one of your drum I don’t use the largest one but the one below it and you clamp you board so that just a very small part of the drum is out of the board then you just slide the board you are sanding along the clamped board as you would do on a joiner..hope I have help you

A poor man’s belt sander, nice. Would you still get a snipe at the end of the board if you haven’t shim the output side of the “fence”? Kind of like with a misaligned jointer outfeed table

I have 2 hand belt sanders and a table one but this is better because it sands in a straight line, as for the snipes you have to let your drum out as little as you can just enough so it touches the wood you are sanding, works fine no snipes at all….you may have to practice a bit how to set it….also no burn
