I have been wanting to do this forever. I turned an old belt sander into a table mounted sanding platform with dust collection. It is much easier to take small parts to the sander than it is to take the sander to small parts. Here is a fun video covering the build:

Nice one Jay! As you say, really a dedicated Sander for this would be ideal, maybe when I come across a cheap one!!

Great execution of a simple design. I would be adopting this model for my shop. In face i was on the hunt for a good but simple design. Your video was very crisp and precise explaining. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve got one of these things sitting around and have thought about doing what Heisz did but I like yours better.
